Lesson #141: Parenting is Hard on The Knees

The other day I fell over a baby gate attempting to climb over it and get into the next room. Yup, smack! Right on my knees. I assure you it was no laughing matter, however it must have looked great because my cousin wouldn’t stop laughing.

Since my knees are now all beat up, I notice every time I use them or am on them: giving Mila a bath, rocking her to sleep, sitting her on my lap and trott-trott-trotting, crawling on the floor chasing her, kneeling down to play with her, and so on, you get the picture.

Having a child is the greatest enjoyment because you can again be a child yourself: laughing, running around, rolling down hills, picking wild flowers, playing in the rain, jumping in mud puddles, playing at the park, swinging high on swings, zipping down slides…

You live vicariously thorough your baby.
