This 4th of July was an absolute blast. Now that E is close to age 2, we are able to do more. We are able to introduce him to more things and it has just been so much fun not only watching him experience all these firsts but also I feel like we, as parents, are experience them again for the first time. Take for example our first activity yesterday…Pool time
Had we not had E, we probably would not have gone to the pool and if we did, we probably would’ve sat on a lounge chair rather than going exploring.
That is definitely one of the things that I hadn’t necessarily thought about when I was pregnant but is easily one of the best parts about being parents. It forces you to shed the “adult” persona and be a kid, enjoy the little things in life and just stop, take a deep breathe and make a memory. (I won’t even go into the fitness benefits, I think you can figure out…when you are more active, you burn more calories…I’m just saying!)
I wasn’t an adult yesterday, I was a kid and I loved every minute of it! Thanks E for giving me that!
Hope you had a happy 4th! From S, E and I!
What did you do?
