I haven't taken part in Kate Takes 5's Listography for a while but I'm sitting here on a miserable Saturday afternoon with no motivation to do anything other than blog.
This week Kate is asking us to list our top five things that we love about kids. Holy hell. FIVE things? That's a tough one...(these are mainly specific to my children by the way).
1. They don't feel the cold
I don't know if it's just my children but they are never cold. They're happy to play outside on even the coldest, wettest and windiest day. I think they are mad but clearly they are having a great time and the fact that it's ZERO degrees out there doesn't matter a jot.
2. They have no sense of fashion
And they just don't care! I love how my daughter can wear a floral dress, spotty tights and a stripy cardigan and think that she looks great - and if she doesn't? Who gives a stuff!
3. They don't bear a grudge
Ever. I could give them the biggest telling off that the world has ever witnessed and they'd still come back for a cuddle moments later. They move on very quickly and never hold anything against me.
4. It's easy to make them laugh
My children are so easy to bring round from a grump - be it tiredness, stroppiness or something that's upset them. A tickle under the chin, a funny rhyme, a terrible joke - they find everything funny.
5. You can make them excited about anything
Even doing the washing up. Or sorting the laundry. The most boring of chores can be turned into a game, adventure or competition and they have so much enthusiasm for the mundane.
