Hi there! I’m Kylie – a teacher and mum who loves playing and cooking with my kids. I live with my husband and two children in the Adelaide hills, South Australia, where we enjoy regular visits from possums, koalas and even have the odd kangaroo in the backyard. I teach five year old children in their first year of school, which is a great privilege and a lot of fun. Octavia and Vicky is my own little creative outlet, and a fun space where I share activities for kids, real parenting stories and yummy things to cook.
My husband’s name is Paul, but here on the blog you’ll know him mostly as ‘Hubby’. We fell in love on a blind date back in 2005. How cute is that? Our best friends set us up and we went out for a drink that turned into dinner, that turned into dancing, that ended with the sweetest kiss goodnight that ever was.
‘Pebble’ is four years old. She doesn’t stop talking or singing or dancing or moving all day long. She loves her baby brother, creating imaginary worlds and asking questions about the existence of the universe.
‘Rocky’ is one year old. He is a full on bundle of energy but a relaxed dude at heart. He loves climbing, opening and closing doors, spinning wheels, throwing balls and laughing at slap stick.
Who are Octavia and Vicky?
