So when was the last time you did something childish? My answer, everyday. Whether it’s playing chase in the garden to going on the climbing frame with Oscar at the park, I am a big kid at times and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love spending time playing with Oscar and fool around as children grow up fast enough as it is without regretting not doing certain things with them when they are young. I often find myself reading books in silly voices and dancing like a crazy woman in the lounge. I might look stupid to the outside World but my little boy loves it so I couldn’t care less.
When you become a parent I think you stop caring about whether you look silly or not because your have had your face painted to match your child at the local fair or worry about getting covered in mud when your “on a bear hunt” at the park. Caring about these sort of things just ruin the fun!
This week for example we went to Go Ape Junior we had loads of fun and I was covered from head to toe with chip wood where I had landed after doing the zip wire. Did I care… No. Oscar found it hilarious so that’s all that mattered to me. Having Oscar has definitely brought out the best in me, don’t get me wrong I love having my hair and nails done but when were at the park it really doesn’t matter what you look like as long as your having fun. This is something I would have never said before having Oscar, having kids just makes you realise what is actually important in life.
