Do you want some ideas for really cool things to do with the kids this summer? Do you live in Northern Ireland? Are you stuck for ideas for days out or places to go with the family? Get ready to be inspired!
One day last week, the kids and I rather spontaneously decided to pack up a picnic and head to Belfast Zoo.
Having been before, I knew to be prepared. The location of the site is on very steep ground, so sensible shoes are a must. I knew Aaron would need his buggy, and I knew to take drinks and snacks for the boys. Trust me – you don’t want to be running back to the shop to buy water when you are half way round the attractions.
What qualities does a parent look for in a child? That there are kind and caring. Independent and eager to learn. Happy, definitely something we wish for our children! Wild and free – well maybe, or maybe not! Yet never before have I came across a t-shirt which so adequately sums up the personality of my little Aaron.
Now October is officially over, I have given myself permission to focus my attention on the next holiday. You got it – Christmas is coming and I am freefalling into the well known, over used, not even that effective, obsession which I have noticed to be common with parents!
