3 years in now and our little girl is a scream! I love getting home and seeing her bounce around shouting "daddy, daddy, daddy, DADDY!" It puts a smile on my face every time I think about it. The days I leave before she wakes up and get back home after she's gone to bed are horrible!
It's funny how their affection shifts from mummy to daddy depending on who's shes spent the most time with, she went through a really clingy stage where her amazing confidence dissapeared at about 2.5 years but thankfully has got through that and is back to her usual hilarious self.
My favourite time has to be when I ask her if she wants to go outside and play, no matter what the weather is like it's always a "YES, can I ride my bike/scooter?"
regarding riding, I don't go out on weekends as that family time, I work Saturday morning so don't want to go out for hours, I'll do a 2-3 hour ride sometimes while she's asleep on a Sunday but depends what needs doing round the house. Mostly commuting and night riding during the week keeps me happy.
