I am not The World’s Best Ever Parent (TM) I know this to be a fact and not merely a self-deprecating sympathy request because until The Toddler started play group three weeks ago he knew a grand total of two nursery rhymes. He did however sing ‘we’re going down the shops’ to the tune of Sham 69′s We’re Going Down the Pub. So high quality rock and roll parenting perhaps, but possibly not quite the one to get me a book deal or invited onto Channel 4 to share my recommendations to other parents.
I say this as background to the Kids Capture the Colour competition which Travel Supermarket are running. Yes, it’s open to children aged under 15 so arguably my two year old is not likely to win when set against the skills of someone doing their Art GCSE, but hey! They were giving away cameras to the kids that took part (better than my own I hasten to add, The Toddler may umm.. be doing a swapsie with mummy) and it also gave me the opportunity to be one of those mums who does loads of creative arty educational stuff with their kids.
