When you first announce that you are pregnant and having a child, the one thing you always hear is how amazing it will be and how you haven’t experienced the most amazing love until you have a child. I completely agree with all of these statements but one thing I was never really told is how much fun I was going to have!
I Laugh and Smile More
These two things are so good for the soul and it is something you can always do more of. Laughing is a pretty consistent thing in my life especially since Isla came along. Everything she does is so funny and sweet. She definitely has a terrific sense of humour and watching her discover new things everyday always warrants a smile. I find it hard not to always have a permanent grin on my face whenever I am around her or thinking about her. More often then not you can find us having laughing fits on the floor over just about anything.
I Play Pretend More
When you get into your twenties you don’t really have the time to play tea party or dress up as your favourite Disney character anymore. Things like work and life in general seem to always get in the way and the fact that you may get laughed at if you show up somewhere in your Ariel dress that you wore when you were 10! I live for the moments when Isla and I can sit down and play dolly’s, or when she pours me a cup of tea and gives me a plastic cookie to munch on which are delicious by the way! I enjoy playing house with her, feeding Elmo and more importantly putting bear in his highchair so he can enjoy a delicious snack of paper. Don’t ask…apparently that’s what he likes.
