ACT mum of the year

By 7 April 2014 5

Belinda Nunn has been named 2014 ACT Barnados Mother of the Year.

Isabella Plains based Ms Nunn, 37, won the accolade after taking on a somewhat heftier load than most. Along with caring for her own three children, she also fosters her niece and supports her twin sisters three children (after her sister’s death several years ago).

Ms Nunn was nominated for the award by her step-mother, who said she didn’t know where she found the energy to do everything she does.

I imagine that’s the case with a lot of mums. Child wrangling is pretty tough.

Congratulations from us!

Well done to Belinda Nunn, sounds like she deserves it.

Just out of curiosity, who won the father of the year?

Last year it was someone who joined the military who spent a lot of time away from their kids..
But I don’t think its government sponsored or done by Barnardos.

So much for equality.. Why not PARENT of the year.

Still kudo’s to Ms Nunn.

The dads’ one is just a celebrity w%$fest by the look of it. At least the mums’ one appears to be open to ordinary people.

I’ll never forget when Malcolm Fraser won Father of the Year in 1976 just after becoming PM. He had sent his kids to boarding school after he refused to move them to Canberra to go to school here when he and Tamie moved into The Lodge.

Excluding males.

The male one is just a fundraise. I dunno what is worse?
