Apparently I have been told that this week is national picnic week so let’s celebrate this appreciate for all things picnicy!
Firstly, as a parent picnic’s are a blessing because it means less tiding up for you as you leave the crumbs and check the paper plates in the bin, result!
You can pretend to be all fancy with your paper plates and napkins, there is a sense of sophistication (even if it is paper).
It is a great way to get out of mummy prison and less time having to focus on what the hell you going to do to entertain your child.
Any excuse for some ice-cream – let’s make this a number one priority when having a picnic.
Picnic food can be finger food, which is my kinda food. It is lovely a spread out where you can take as you please, there is a sense of family and togetherness. You can bond and talk about life *cue sick bucket*.
Nothing says summer like eating out Al fresco in the open.
When your young it feels like an adventure and it is free in the fact that when it is winter and miserable you end up in soft play hell and a hole in your wallet.
It is good to have a change of scenery and doing something different. Parenting can become tedious doing the same thing day in, day out so it gives us parents a change to keep hold of your sanity.
Eating outside when the sun is shining is a quick way to top up on some Vitamin D, which has some health benefits with helping your mind feel good.
Technically if the child/ren are outside they are running around during that energy off which means that they should sleep better, *fist pumps*.
