I agree with this completely!!! Especially the camping part. I tried this with 23 month old and it was an absolute nightmare! She has a routine, which was completely blown to shreds by this camping endeavor. She wanted her crib, her blanket, and her Minnie Mouse nightlight. It was chilly that evening, so she had a hard time falling asleep. We've also never slept with her (she's always in her crib) so that caused tons of confusion and a sleepless night for me. It was horrible. I'm not even trying again until she is 4 or 5.

I have three children.. two with asd. the baby is almost two and into everything... we have done nearly everything with my kids above and have a blast.... ummm I kept seeing the words bugs... its outside of course there are bugs... in fact we had a bbq today.. and we are at the time of year that wasps are looking for protein.. did the kids panic? nope.. my 9 year old autistic son said.. "Mum, why is the bee eating my chicken?" I told him because hes hungry.. then watched as tore a tiny piece off and flew away.. my toddler eats more from the garden than she does from the house... the fact Im quite happy for her to pull fresh veg and fruit and eat it... even better...
Dirt is part of life... peeing out side is part of camping... always have wet wipes.. loads of wet wipes and carrier bags... Life is too short to worry about little things... take your kids out.. have fun, roll your eyes at the melt downs... pull the worm out of their mouth and hose them down at the end of the day. In a few years they wont even want to be in the same room as you.... enjoy it while you can.
