Being a parent is like someone handed you a second chance at your childhood. Your house suddenly fills with toys you always wanted to own, your cupboards are full of foods you loved eating as a child and playgrounds become a great source of fun once again.
But the best thing is, you get to experience this childhood with the most adorable, fun and crazy as can be little person/people.
I’ve never really needed an excuse to climb a cargo net at the park or whiz down the giant swirling slide, but at least now I don’t get strange side glances or whispered comments from strangers. I can spend as long as I like chasing after M, around the park until we are both rosy cheeked.
I also love how much excitement M displays when we join in with his fun. He giggles as C tosses her shows aside and runs barefooted up the slide. We hear full belly laughs from him when I try to fit my bottom in a baby swing adjacent to his.
Nothing makes you feel younger, than trying to see the world through your children’s eyes. Give it a go, the world is full of adventure at every step.
