Have Fun As A Family - Immersing in The Kids’ World


Once in a while, we immerse ourselves in our kids’ world.

We play PS3, arcade and ball games together. We play hide-and-seek and chasing. We engage in water splashing challenge in the pool. We allow the kids to win us in board games. He crawls/climbs with the kids at the playground.  I let my hair down and sing/dance with the kids. He challenges the kids to games of arm wrestling. Many more…

These are our childish moments together *hee*.

[I find these moments easier to treasure and remember instead of those shopping and movie watching moments together.]




It is FUN!

It enables us to relive our childhood life and  experience the joy that we have never had before.

It allows our Papa Ed, who usually plays the firm father role, to show his fun-loving side to the kids.

It makes us feel YOUNGER although not as energetic as before.

It allows our kids to feel a sense of pride because these are some moments that they can outshine their parents *haha*.

Most importantly, these are one of those QUALITY TIME that we engage ourselves with our kids. All enjoy it!

And…I would very much like our kids to carry these memories with them even as they grow - the PARENT TIMES that we have much FUN, LAUGHTER and ENJOYMENT together as a family.



See what I mean when I say that it is FUN….we  find true meanings in this fun way of bonding *smile*.


The kids hiding from mommy



Mommy giving chase



Darren claiming victory because mommy was slower to find her way out of the maze



I love the bright smiles on the kids’ faces



Never too old to be sporty..hee.. not that we are that old now.



Not as agile as before but never a constrain to be part of our kids’ play

    Agree with you completely.. spending quality time with them now will sow bonus time later on in life..

  • VanillaSeven says:

    Where is this area? where that pillars located. Looks like you guys have a lot of fun! :)

  • What a nice place? Is this in Singapore? I fully agree about quality time. Bonding starts from childhood which they will carry up to their teens when we most want them to confide in us.

  • I’m getting old and don’t have much energy to run after kids. :P I am playing more online games with them. Not healthy eh?

  • Yes, I am doing what your hubby and you did, chasing, crawling and acting like a kid myself. It wouldn’t last long thou, as time flies and soon they are not even interested in you being a horsey ;)

  • Mamapumpkin says:

    That is awesome! We often forget that it is so important to PLAY with our kids and it’s almost like going to the gym. You don’t want to do it and it’s really hard to do, but once you do it, you’re so happy you did it. So worth it!

    Hi VS,

    It’s at Labrador Park…you keen to visit?

  • Denesa says:

    Yes, both places are in Singapore:)

  • Denesa says:

    Hi ECL,

    Glad to see you back. Playing online games is also bonding as long as no overdose..hee..

    Frankly, I am also having knee pain etc…chasing after them…However, we need to show kids that we think young, we live young …haha..

  • Denesa says:

    Hi Claire,

    I am just trying to squeeze the limited time spent with them on activities they like and not what I like. Time flies so fast, because if we don’t grab these quality moments, they will slip past very fast.

  • Denesa says:

    Hi Mike,
    You are right. I would grab hold of this privilege that I have now to play with them too as a parent before they pronounce us “old minded and cannot catch up with them in their latest interests/activities”. It is fun too to enjoy some childhood moments that I never used to have with siblings as an only child.

  • Denesa says:

    Hi Mamapumpkin,

    Yeah, it is worth it! I don’t know what the future is like but I definitely know that it is important to treasure every “TODAY” we have with our kids.

    BTW, thanks for visiting:) BTW, you have an interesting blog:)

  • Great post, and oh so true! I love feeling like a kid again when I play with my young nieces and nephews. Yes, sometimes you have to let them win — it helps to build their confidence. Not all the time, though! One must also learn how to lose gracefully — an important lesson for later in life! ;)
    If I had kids, I’d be the most fun mom because I still love to run, jump and play ball and all kinds of games. I just do it with adults now! ;)
