“Raising the future” Something as parents we see and hear all the time. We have the ‘mama-merch’ and tell each other how much of a good job we’re doing and its great that we have that support, that solidarity.
One of the biggest parts of the everyday in our house is food. I’m lucky in that Isla is a brilliant eater but with a good eater comes the struggle of having healthy homemade food and snacks ready five or six times per day. I’ve pretty much got it down to a tee now (took me long enough) and now don’t rely at all on convenience foods or toddler snacks. I thought it would be interesting to do a few examples on what Isla eats and I might include some recipes for the healthy snacks that her dad makes for her.
So here it is, the grand finale, the event I looked forward to for 7 whole months. I had such high expectations for Geronimo and I can honestly say it was everything I had hoped for and more. I’ll be 100% going back next year as I know Isla enjoyed it as much as I did. It is an amazing experience to look back on and will remain one of my favourite memories for years to come as it was time spent with amazing friends.
Part Two of the my Three part Geronimo Festival post is all about travelling. Since moving further away from friends and family we’ve traveled back and forth between cities several times and I’ve learned a few possibly helpful tips along the way.
I write this on a day following a terrorist attack on Manchester. Who knows if there will have been more by the time this is published. Today I’ve felt truly terrified of the world that our children are growing up in, terrified of the hate that they’ll see and the acts of violence they will witness. As children they should know nothing but love and kindness, and with our help the next generation could stand up against hate and follow our examples. Let them not be racist, or sexist, or just pricks in general. Let them be good people, because our beautiful world and our amazing children deserve it.
Just like that, she’s half way to two. She’s growing up before my eyes and I am powerless to change that, I’m well and truly being dragged along for the ride. But to tell you the truth, I’m loving every moment.
Back in October one of my closest friends mentioned that there was a children’s festival called Geronimo on in May. After discussing it for a few days we decided to just run with it and book our tickets so there was no turning back.
