It started off as London bridge

It started off as a normal game of London bridge.

Then things went haywire when the “bridge” came falling down, and the kids climbed on top of it.

It looks as if they were trying to conquer the bridge — affectionately known as daddy.

I love capturing such silly moments that fill our mundane days and rather ordinary weekends.

Day after day, we play, we laugh, we learn, we cry, we get going again.

Days like these remind me of my own childhood, where I used to play at void-decks, wander into neighbours’ houses, run all over the playground with my brother and other kids.

Moments like these go by with nary a care or a worry.

I love it that they teach me something. To be present, fully present, with my family when we’re together. To appreciate (and learn from) the husband’s exemplary playful behaviour.

What bonding activities do you enjoy most with your kids?

    I too have to learn from my husband’s playfulness. Moments like these make me appreciate the fact that they never grow up! :p

    Your children are really lucky to have you guys as parents. I see you really make an effort to fill their weekends with lots of play. I’m sure they will grow up with precious childhood memories like you did. I bond with Aly through reading, through singing (she loves singing) and through playing silly games!

      I’m making the effort to play more crazily like my hubby does. But like you, I find that my natural inclination is to read and sing songs with the kids, and also do art or simple craft activities with them. I think these are a hit with Vera, but I do see my approach needs to be changed a little to suit the little boy! Thanks for sharing and leaving me a note, Zee. 🙂
