You know the way when you're sitting all comfy in your pjs with a glass of wine in one hand (if you're me) and a bar of chocolate in the other watching TV and one of those ads come on? You know the ones - the ones that show you pictures of ill and starving children that you can't bear to see and frankly find it even harder to deal with now that you've had kids yourself.
So maybe you switch over. Save yourself having the images run through your head when you kiss your own children good night. There's nothing you can really do to help anyway.
Well now you can. And it's just one easy click away (just not yet I haven't finished).
So here's the deal, as explained by the wonderful Josie from Sleep is for the Weak:
1) Get your child to either draw or craft a self-portrait of themselves now or in the future, perhaps imagining what they will look like or what they might do. Here's mine doing 'What I want to be when I grow up'.
The picture on the left is my daughter being a vet and the alien on the right is my boy being a scientist, apparently. When asked why he said - 'cause Alan is one and he cuts up cows brains. Nice. The 2 year old wants to be a lion.
2) Sign the Save the Children petition and share news of it with your friends.
4) Tag 8 bloggers to do the same.
