Where have you travelled? - Day 29 of 31 Day Blog Challenge.

Not many places really. I've travelled all over the Scotland and England when I was younger with my family then when I was a teenager I woke up in those same random places with a hangover and no recollection of how I got there.

Only been out of the UK twice.

Once when I was a teenager I visited Italy with a youth group. We sang for the Pope and what not but I really wish I could remember more of it. I feel like the sights such as the Vatican City and the Colosseum where a bit lost on me when I was in my early teens. I remember how beautiful they were but I feel to go back and see them ten years later would be so much better. Such beauty. Also, remember one women outside the Vatican with one eye begging for money, could be the first and last time I have seen an infected empty eye socket.

Also went to Tenerife with my grandparents when I was a teenager. I didn't enjoy it much, that's not a reflection on my grandparents, it was great of them to take me. But sitting in a hot country by the pool in a bikini is not my idea of a holiday. We did do some mountain walking, which is right up my holiday street, but by then I had a tan and my feet were so sunburned they'd swollen up really badly that I was just miserable.

Yes, boring post was boring, sorry guys.

Why do 'modified parent' and 'metal head parent' pages, posts and blogs annoy me?

Most always say along the lines of how we are amazing parents. Their whole premise is based on how I am a better parent because I like metal and ink.
Yes, a lot of modified and 'metal head' parents strive to be the best parents we can possibly be but there is so much more to me that tattoos, piercings and  music taste. The girls involved in that Ian Watkins case, I bet they have tattoos and listen to 'alternative' music, are they brilliant parents just for the fact they do? No.
Nothing about appearance makes a parent. I do not, in away way shape or form want to be judged on mine with even positive light, when it comes to my parenting.

I want you to judge me on the things that matter when it comes to raising a child.

I want you to see that my son is incredibly smart and is functioning two years ahead of himself and see how I try to keep up with his intellect and encourage him without pushing him to far.
I want that to be something I am judged on with my parenting, not my music taste.

I want you to see how happy my child is and see how we play and laugh and hug and read. I want you to see how healthy my child is and look in my cupboard and fridge and see I am trying to give him the best and healthiest starts to life I possibly can.
I want that to be something I am judged on with my parenting, not my hair colour.

I want you to see how I am trying to raise my child to use his words to communicate. I want you to see how I try to keep a liberal mind and plan to teach him about every aspect of everything I possibly can, be it different races and religions and sexualities and Marvel VS DC.
I want that to be something I am judged on with my parenting, not my tattoos.

Two weeks to go...

So most people who know me know I am not a Christmas person. I don't like the music, I don't like the movies and I am allergic to half the decorations and the other half are far too tacky to even think about buying(coming for the women who bought a foot tall magenta stag covered in glitter last year).
I am no longer a Christian so that takes a bit of excitement away from the whole holiday season too.

But, this year seems different and I think it's down to having a toddler.
