10 Ways I Show my Love to my Kids

Love is what makes the world go round. It is strong feeling of affection or a great interest/pleasure in something.

Without Love one may be nursing feeling of loneliness, bitterness or other negative feelings. This will eat into our core and turn ourselves into a nasty person. I’m sure that one wouldn’t want to end up as such a person.

Even though we do need our individual space at time we do crave for the attention and presence of others around us to dote on us.

Here are some ways that I show my love to my kids

1. I spend time with them and do the activities that they like together with them.

2. Shower them with hugs and kisses

3. Take time to explain to them and show them how to do things when they do not know how to or make a mistake.

4. Understand their needs and wants and let them know how important they are to me.

5. Respect their views and opinions.

6. Let them win however not all the time.

7. Give them your full attention when they are around.

8.  Make them laugh and laugh with them.

9. I make home a fun place to be.

10.  We cook and clean together.

How do you show your love to your kids?

 

10 Pictures taken at Tokyo DisneySea.

It has been about two month since our trip to Japan and I’m still going through the pictures that I took back then.

Here is a compilation of photos we took when we went to Tokyo DisneySea Theme park back then. The kids and I enjoyed the place so much more then Disneyland as we went on more rides and had lots more fun at the place.

Mermaid lagoon was one of the places which we went to in the theme park. There were many rides here for younger kids and Tiger girl really enjoyed herself here.

The whirlpool was really fun. The teacups spun around and around and it was dizzying just looking at it go.  As it wasn’t that crowded at the whirlpool ride the kids and the grandparents went on it thrice!!

Flounder’s Flying fish was a really cool coaster ride which the kids and I went on.  It was really refreshing to feel the wind in your hair as the coaster zooms up and down on the track.

From Mermaid Lagoon we crossed over to the Mediterranean Harbor where we hitched a ride on Jasmine’s flying carpet. It was fun flying the carpet up and down while it was moving around in a circle.

This was Tiger girl’s favourite ride. She went countless times on it and there wasn’t any queue for this ride and she was allowed to sit on the elephant by herself. There was a safety belt to belt her in before the ride began.

The Big Band Beat was one of the shows that we managed to watch while at the park. It was a Broadway style musical  which had dynamic singing and a live band. The kids and I didn’t get to watch up close as  the show already started when we were in the area but we did get a bird’s eye view from  behind the fence where we were standing.

After the show we headed over to the American Waterfront area as the boys wanted to go to the Tower of Terror.  They had secured a FASTPASS for the ride and by the time the show was over it was just in time for their death defying ride.

I passed on this ride as I wasn’t too keen on suddenly plunging 50 stories down while on the ride. I had tried a similar ride once and am not really that keen on such a thrilling ride. Tiger girl was also asleep by the time we came to this ride so it was a valid excuse for me to sit out on it.

Fantasmic was the last show that we watched before exiting the park that day. The kids were wowed by the laser displays, lights and fire in the dramatic show which portrayed a portion from the story the Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

DisneySea was certainly a cool theme park to visit and the kids and I am considering visiting it again the next time we go to Japan.
