I had fun

List five things you do for fun.

Okay, maybe these prompts are growing on me. Maybe we just had a bad start.

Five things I do for fun. That should be easy.

1) The absolute best: cleaning up after my daughter. This morning she left a number two in her leggings. I swear she was without a diaper for only two minutes, and she knows when she needs to. This was an absolute ‘screw you, dad’. The best was when I washed it out, all flushed into the foot end, where it piled up. Think about how to get that out without getting your hands dirty. Not even two, but she’s nine kilos of fun.

2) Pepa Pig. I just love watching Pepa Pig. So original. So fun.

3) Kindergarten, and the cocktail of respiratory fun that kids bring home. Third day of both kids at home this year. It’s so much fun cleaning the green goo from their faces all day. Having both kids at home, while both parents have tight schedules is generally a lot of fun.

4) Brushing my son’s teeth. ‘No you can’t help me, mom is much more fun’.

5) Games. Especially Uno for kids. Because I am known to be a lover of games of all sorts. Games are fun aren’t they… Oh boy. At least my son seems to think so. Lots of gaming fun to be had with him.

I can’t remember what I used to do to achieve it, but I probably had fun doing things before we had kids.
