Oh Listography, how I have missed thee!
KateTakes5 is only doing this feature once a monthn instead of weekly which I am gutted about but I will make the most of the ones I can do!
This months subject is close to my heart, not only because I have children but also because I work in a Nursery so I have 71 children to refer to! I hate other peoples kids, not the ones I know but the ones in the street/ bus/ shopping centre/ supermarket!
I love kids that I know personally and get to spend almost everyday with them!
Here are my top 5 things I love about kids:
1 - The way they make you, as an adult, do stupid things!
For instance, I have pulled many a funny face, told a silly story or made up completely random things just to entertain, losing all self dignity and professionalism! When at home, I have been known to chase my son around a room or wrestle him to the ground just to entertain!
2 - When you get random bouts of affection
I love it when my son tells me he loves me for no reason. Or when a child at work runs up to me and hugs me! I get that warm, fluffy feeling inside!
3 - Teaching them new things and seeing them apply it to life
The best thing about being a mum is teaching your children new things and when my son learns from me I feel an enormous sense of pride and achievement.
4 - When I can talk to kids like an adult!
Dont get me wrong, kids should be kids and act like one. But having a normal conversation with them without talking down to them like a child is so much easier!
5 - The excitement
The joy in kids faces when they explore or do something fun, you cannot beat the look on their faces!
