So this weekend we tried out camping with kids for the first time ever. In days gone by it was something The Man and I did quite regularly. We used to volunteer with a youth organisation, so as well as personal camping trips to Wales and the Peak District, we would accompany Duke of Edinburgh expeditions to do spot checks, waypoints and basically make sure they knew how to pitch tents, cook porridge and not get up to any mischief. The most fun was taking the new recruits out on Initial Expedition Training as it was far less hardcore and they would have such a good time.
Today we have a very special guest post brought to you by my 1 year old daughter, The Girl, who has a few tips for her compatriots and fellow toddlers…
As we all know it’s hard work being a toddler. There’s always lots to keep you busy and life is never easy. Almost anything can tip me over the edge these days! One of the aspects of my life that I find the most work-intensive, and yet also the most rewarding, is keeping my parents happy and well-occupied – goodness knows you don’t want to give them the chance to even think about another baby, never mind the opportunity to actually do something about it!
