Life with children can be a monotonous slog. When they’re babies there’s the day in, day out round of nappy changes, snotty noses, playgroups and poo, lots of poo. As they get older, children then have an endless list of homework, after school clubs, weekend activities and hobbies that they want and need their parents to take part in. A never-ending list of things to be done, jobs parents need to do, and all round hard work. It’s not easy being a parent.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love my kids and wouldn’t change anything for the world. Though go on, admit it, you find playgroups and crafts a bit boring too. We do all this stuff because we love them, because we care for their development and, whilst some of it is fun for all, through some of it we can find ourselves bored to tears. Sometimes we need to work out how to put the focus on fun.
