I want to be that mother who can stand up and say I am a strong confident mother and I know what is best for my children. We breastfeed and co sleep, We listen, We include, We eat chocolate and snot smoothies, we trampoline and grow frogs, we sling, we carry and we try and understand and work with our children without resorting to punishments, threats or coercion.

Thanks to the men who do stuff with machines.

We always meet interesting people when we go to watch the planes.
Last time we met a man with a jcb and he let us have a sit inside his tractor
This time we met a man lifting skips and he let us push his levers
It warms my heart to know there are still some people out there who are not officious and over the top health and safety and can allow others to take control for their own health and safety when appropriate. People who remember what its like to be a kid and to have the opportunity to do cool things like touch a lever that makes a massive hydraulic pump lift a massive red skip onto a truck and have it loom over your head. Also people who are happy to allow me to climb onto a skip’s side with baby on back and grab a few cool things!
Our find today was a white board and some baskets
