Welcome to Milk At the Museum Adventures aka MAMA Chats. This week I got to chat to the brilliant Tone aka @scandimum_ Just love Tone’s honesty in relation to all things parenthood, her posts are spot on and her stories always make me laugh, go check her out 😍
WHAT IS IT YOU LOVE ABOUT MUSEUMS?
I love that when you’re there you can get totally lost in your own thoughts and be completely consumed with what you’re looking at. When I’m in a museum I’m only thinking about what I’m seeing and the impressions I’m getting, and all the other stressful things that take up headspace kind of fade into the background. I also love the feeling of being so close to history! 🖼
BEST CHILDHOOD MEMORY? I have a really hard time remembering a lot from my early childhood but I do remember my parents having a waterbed when I was a child and when they swapped it for a normal mattress my dad filled it up with hot air from a hairdryer and him and I went down the hill on it (it was in the winter in Norway)! A close contender is being 4/5 and laying on my belly on the dock, looking for little fish in the sea while my grandad was sorting out the fishing nets for his fishing boat. Norwegian summers are the best! 🌊 🐟 ☀️ WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MUSEUM AND WHY? I think it’s gonna have to be the V&A @vamuseum because it was one of the first museums I visited when I started coming to London and it’s still the museum I go to if I fancy a museum day
WHAT WAS THE LAST PICTURE YOU TOOK ON YOUR PHONE?
It was of my smallest one sitting on my bed wrapped up in two towels looking rather sorrowful because she’d had to have a shower at 9am and the bathroom was freezing. It was a poo incident 💩 #mumlife
IF YOU WERE TO CREATE A PIECE OF ART WHAT WOULD THE SUBJECT BE? It would probably be some kind of sculpture or installation about how the femme body is political or something about our narrow ideas of gender 👩🎨 WHO WOULD BE YOUR PERFECT MUSEUM BUDDY? If I’m totally honest I like to go solo when I’m visiting museums but if I had to take someone I’d take my husband. I’d love to spend some more time with just him! ⭐️
ANY PARENTING TIPS? Umm NO! Smother them with love and hope for the best #wingingit 🙌
