This or that hadn't gone as I'd expected, you know how it is. But instead of letting it get to me I decided to stop for a moment. I pictured myself as a pinprick on the planet. Surrounded by thousands of other pinpricks. All parents, doing the best we can with the resources we have. Raising our families in different ways, in different cities, in different countries. All going through the good and the bad and getting on with it. Getting through it. Sharing it.
And at that point I realised that we get so caught up in our day-to-day lives that sometimes we forget that there are other perspectives out there. I wanted to hear those perspectives. To read them, learn from them, laugh (and cry) along with them. To celebrate our differences and our similarities. So I'm hosting some occasional guest posts from Mummy and Daddy bloggers who live outside the UK, bringing you their take on parenting in their corner of the world.
Parenting around the planet. It'll be a fun ride so jump on board and strap yourself in. You never know, there might even be biscuits...
