Why is Parenting Fun?

Postby lisadrome » Tue Feb 22, 2011 6:01 pm

Has anyone any thoughts to why parenting can be fun?

1. Children's faces- remind us our younger days?
2. Parents happy to see their grandchildren
3. The darnest things they do or say
4. All those fun-filled activities- from drawing- painting..
5. Seeing your daughter in her first ballet lesson?
6. Their laughter
7. Their mistakes?

What in your parenting experience makes you find it a joy, Fun and ines capable??

Why? :idea:

Because it's my own little kingdom! :wink:

Never a dull day in my kingdom... the princes and princess sometimes behave beautifully, and other times try to take over my kingdom by staging a coup.

There are days of celebrations in my kingdom, but there are days of quelling the rebellion... often with many tactical warfare and strategem on the part of the king and queen. :wink:

A little kingdom, oh yes definately for it me it would be the mini Singapore zoo.. as we are a bit of animal lovers...

I think in the case when my parents brought me up i feel that the love was so special and I just want that special feeling to be experienced by us.. Does anyone have this similar sentiments??

Do expand your thoughts on -- what your parents have done for you and maybe express that to what you think you want to follow or maybe even unfollow in your little kingdom or zoo??

I think it's fun 'cos I like to hug them babies... and smell their tummies and feel their soft kisses on my cheeks.

But smelling tummies that lasts only 3 years at most... and then *sighs*.

Then again, age to age, they have lovely things too. But I do miss them at that smelling tummies age. :wink:

Parenting is fun 'cos you grow with them, re-ignite your pure childhood innocence and of course came the un-anticipated ... yesterday nite, my DS refused a kiss from me on his lip 'cos he said that's meant for girlfriends and boyfriends (meaning not mothers and sons) :(

i like your description. :D

hmm ... is parenting fun? well i guess it is, when you are sitting quietly and thinking about it. but when you are in the thick of things and feeling like tearing out your hair, that is hardly fun.

so the answer for me is yes and no. 8)
