Anabelle will be two years old on June 30, Sam and I can’t believe how fast the time has gone.
Our perception of time is a funny thing isnt it? It seems like only yesterday we held Anabelle in our arms for the first time and yet it seems like a lifetime ago that she was a newborn. She’s only two years old; I can’t imagine how this will feel when she’s twelve, sixteen or even twenty!
One of the things I love about being a dad is spending quality time playing with Anabelle, after all I’m just a big kid myself! We have a trampoline out the back that Anabelle LOVES. She’s so confident on it, loves to jump, spin, run and bounce for hours at a time. It brings us so much joy to see her play on it and beckon for us to join her.
I love my times on the weekends when I get to spend an hour or so having quality trampoline time with my daughter.
Now here’s the funny part. Somehow, in some weird way, we’ve discovered that Anabelle has a “connection” with the trampoline.
It’s something we simply can’t explain, maybe we need Fox Mulder to come and give us his opinion. Nevertheless we find it highly amusing, albeit a little inconvenient.
For some strange reason after about five minutes on the trampoline Anabelle does a number two!
Every time! No matter what time of day, or how many times she’s already been that day, without fail there it is!
I’m sure you can imagine how we first discovered this – just think about what you do on a trampoline and then the concept of the diaper – yep like dropping potato mash from the second floor onto the pavement!!
All is well again after a quick trip inside to change the diaper – after we either have to coax her to the opening in the safety net or I have to climb in and get her.
We have no explanation as to why this happens, we simply find it hilarious!!
