Welcome to episode 25 of the Slouching towards Thatcham parenting podcast!
Every week my guest and I each talk about and read one of our favourite posts about life as a parent. It’s as simple as that: bite-sized chunks of blogging brilliance!
This week I’m joined by Tracey from the blog Mummyshire.
Tracey’s a mum of two who moved from London out to the leafy shires. In her post Staying calm, she talks about her struggle to bite her tongue in the face of lazy racial stereotyping and what Michelle Obama has termed ‘micro-aggressions’.
Like Tracey, I lived in London for a long time but moved away, although I did so long before our kids came along. Nonetheless, the kids and I love being close enough to the capital to head in for days out whenever the mood takes us.
This week I’m reading a post called 5 modes of transport, 3 boys, 1 brilliant day about a particularly good trip into London with Isaac and Toby last Easter.
Before I go, one final announcement …
This is the final episode of the Slouching towards Thatcham podcast.
Next week will see the launch of the new, bigger and better Meet the Parents podcast. Join me and a team of mums and dads every week for family-based chat, bringing you real stories from real parents on both sides of the fence.
You’ll be able to follow us at our new website meettheparentspodcast.com, on Twitter @ParentsPodcast and on Facebook. Do please follow us on each of those and join us next week for even more parenting podcasting!
