I’m a Mum with two children aged 4 and 6. And boy do they know how to put me on the spot with more questions than I can answer. Usually the whopper ones come while crossing a busy road. They’re generally meaning of life ones ironically, as we try not get squashed by a juggernaut. Biology ones often come post-bath (inevitably, given we have a boy and a girl). Day closes….if it does….with a few major cosmic questions, when, fascinating as earth science is, I’d frankly rather be enjoying the fruit of the vine.
Sorry to say this blog is not the holy grail of answers. If I find that one I will link to it I promise.
In the meantime, we’re going to be mulling over quite a range, from “Why doesn’t Everyone Collect Conkers?”, to “Is Batman Real?” and “Can we give that Homeless Man our Spare Room?” (I feel like making another cup of coffee already don’t you?)
And if you’re interested in my life B.C (before children of course – I’m not that old (mere 37, say it quick), I was a Senior Broadcast Journalist for BBC Religion and Ethics, where I reported on what everyone else thinks about everything. Now I’m at home, where I write, teach and generally try to keep up with when it’s P.E. for which child.
Please join in the discussions and share the questions you’ve had thrown at you. Oh, and any tips on keeping the big questions at bay, just until you’re over that major arterial road?
Happy sharing and stay safe,
