IT DOESN'T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE JUST ABOUT THE KIDS....
Okay, so mostly it does have to be about the kids. Otherwise you take them out, they hate it, chuck a tanty and make you look like the most crazy parent of the year who has no control - you leave. Game over, go home and have a sneaky wine, or pig out on chocolate in the cozy comfort of your toilet. Ahhhh....parent bliss.
But there are some things us parents can do, that's more for us but the kids can tag along too.
It's worth a shot anyway, right?
