Our Riskiest Adventure Yet!

So we have some exciting news here at The Risky Kids! In just one month, we’ll be embarking on our biggest, riskiest adventure to date.


We’re headed to Spain for a month!

The four of us are headed to sunny Spain, with a possible side trip to London, next month. We’ve been planning this trip for years, and we’re thrilled that it’s almost here. We’re obviously excited for the food, the sights, and the people. But from a Risky Kid perspective, I’m also excited to see how another culture approaches parenting and play. We’re already prepping the kids for a much different schedule and lifestyle – later nights, meals in bars, and less hurrying and scurrying.

If you’ve been to Spain and have any recommendations of things we can’t miss, please share them with us! Of course you know me – I’m especially interested in cool playgrounds and parks. We’ll be in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, and southern Spain.

What can you expect while we’re gone? Well, I’m in the process of getting some posts ready ahead of time. I’ll also be reposting a few oldies but goodies, revamped for your reading pleasure. I’ll be posting less – once or twice a week instead of my normal three times, but I’m sure you all understand! I’ll be posting updates about our trip on my personal blog, Just Like The Number. Be sure to follow me on Instagram (@angiesix) for some fun pictures as well.

In the meantime, I’d love to have some guests posts lined up! If you’re interested in writing a guest post for The Risky Kids, email me (theriskykids@gmail.com) with your idea. If you happen to have kids who walk to school by themselves, I’d love to hear from you. That’s one of the tasks in 50 Dangerous Things (You Should Let Your Children Do) that we (unfortunately) aren’t able to do where we live.

Moms, have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend! I hope it’s lovely and idle!
