Early wake-up call for milestone
JADE Paolone had been planning a trip to Las Vegas to celebrate her 30th birthday.
Instead, the new mum spent the day at home in Alexander Heights, looking after her new bundle of joy, Bianca, who arrived only seven weeks ago.
“I woke up on my birthday to bub wanting a 3am feed… ‘Happy Birthday to me’,” Mrs Paolone mused.
Many of the gifts Mrs Paolone received from family and friends for her milestone birthday last Monday were as much for Bianca as they were for her, such as a baby swing.
Like Mrs Paolone, Community Newspaper Group is sharing the gifts of its 30th birthday this year.
Readers can continue to enter our competition to win a share of $30,000, where six people each week will win $1000 cash before one extra lucky winner at the end will take home $6000.
Mrs Paolone said if her name was drawn, she would probably invest $1000 into starting an education savings fund for her daughter.
There are still three weeks to go in the $30,000 giveaway, which readers can enter each week online at communitynews.com.au.
