Parental Excitement

Things only a parent can get excited about;

  • Hearing nonsense words
  • Somebody taking a single step
  • A human rolling over
  • A burp
  • Urine in a plastic pot in your sitting room
  • A poo in a nappy after 6 days of waiting
  • A poo in a plastic pot in your sitting room
  • Someone using a toilet… correctly
  • A tooth breaking through a gum
  • A tooth falling out
  • A washing line full of clothes on a dry windy day
  • 7pm (bedtime!)
  • Going to work
  • A hot drink… that’s still hot
  • Grocery shopping (alone)
  • A squiggle on a page
  • Someone pedalling a bike
  • Actual food getting consumed at a meal
  • A night ALONE

And last but by no means least…

  • A full night of uninterrupted sleep.

What have you gotten excited about lately?

Did it make you question your sanity? If so, welcome to parenthood.
