Thought I’d be inclusive with the thread title, although I’m not sure any mums post on SFCU.
So my daughter who was born on the 7th anniversary of our famous GF win down in the shithole is now nearly 20 months old and is a handful.
I spoiled her irreparably by preferring to carry her in my arms everywhere we went from when she was just months old (so I could lift her up and kiss her anytime I wanted), and now she screams blue murder when we try to put her in a stroller. So I have to carry her in my arms whenever we go out. Oops.
She’s got about 20-25 words, and even went to her first ever Sydney FC game (the 2-0 win over Western Suburbs at the SCG recently) when my missus desperately needed an evening off from parenting. Spent most of the game walking up and down the stairs from the concourse down to Row A, about 50 times but somehow saw both goals.
I have Wednesdays off so I take her out, and rotate between visits to Taronga Zoo, the Sea Life Aquarium and the Wild Life Zoo next door, the local library and visits to the city. Taronga Zoo on Wednesday mornings are excellent, can have the ranger’s 4WD in the tiger enclosure all to ourselves.
I’m completely besotted with her and try to capture every moment on my phone, and catalogue them for easy searching in the future. I’m going to be seeing her photos and videos all day when I’m an old man.
