Parenting is Easier When You Have Fun
Becoming a parent for the first time is an exciting prospect but nobody can prepare your for how much your life is going to change.
It is a time where that special addition to your life calls on you for everything. When they need feeding, changing or when they are tired, they need your help and that means you have to devote all of your time to them. This is undoubtedly tiring and after countless nights of no sleep, it is common for people to wonder what they are actually doing.
That is natural. These amazing babies have come into our lives and turned them upside down, so parents are well within their right to question what is happening to them. However, through the challenge of tiredness, bleary eyes, making bottles, breastfeeding or changing a dirty nappy it is always worth remembering that what you have is a gift.
That little miracle that you hold in your arms is all yours and as hard as it might be at times, they are part of you. They will bring you so much joy and happiness and in the blink of an eye, a small smile can help you to forget about those tough times such as rising for the third time during the small hours of the night.
These moments of absolute amazement make you realise that embracing the good times as much as possible enable you to take on the tough times. The whole point of parenting is to help that little bundle of joy grow into an adult who is capable of leading their own life and that is more rewarding that anything else in life. So, when it comes to parenting, turn it into a fun experience and you will find that everything becomes a lot easier. It’s challenging, tough and it puts pressure on you but it is a lot of fun watching them grow and develop because that is what being a parent is all about.
