WINNER: REALLY NO SUCH THING AS BAD WEATHER
Our adventures Essex, London & beyond Sharing our passion for the outdoors Solo mum, muddy boy Outside whatever the weather Nature lovers Novice Campers.
I started this blog a year & a half ago with the aim to encourage people who look after children to get outside more. I’m Essex through and through and really love our county. As well as a love of where I live, I also wanted to share our passion for the outdoors and our adventures with you.
I really do think that there is no such thing as bad weather when it comes to getting outside with our children. I try to teach my son (B who is 5) that enjoyment of the outdoors isn’t weather dependent. How can we enjoy jumping in muddy puddles without rainy days? I’m also a big believer of learning through play and the letting children have the freedom of unstructured play.

Simon Harris’ Dad Blog. Musings, jokes, jumping on trends to appear more popular … whatever. Simon Harris run more blogs and Facebook pages that he would care to mention and thought he would have a go at something semi-serious about parenthood. He is an Essex Dad, married with three kids under five (explaining the appropriate receding hairline) – four, two and ten months.

So what is it? Well, I personally think every parent has their “zone”. We will all excel at certain parts of parenting. Some will be awesome when they’ve got a tricky teenager, some people are magical with tiny babies, some people are good are thinking up fun games for pre-school age. That’s me. I found newborn babies almost unbearably difficult, but chatty, active 2-5 years olds? That’s my bag. Everything else is about survival and making the most of it.
