As a kid, I was always in a rush to grow up. Now that I’m grown up I’m all about enjoying the moment. Days rush by blurring into months and before you know it another year has gone by. It seems like just yesterday I was kissing my daughter’s little chubby dimpled hands and now they’re long slender 8-year-old hands. The first time around I was wishing each stage would arrive more quickly. I wished she could crawl, walk, and talk without really enjoying the stage she was in. This time around I had 6 years of experience under my belt and I knew how quickly each stage went by. I was more mindful to live in the moment and enjoy each stage because I knew it was only a matter of time before it passed.
Today I’d like to know what’s your favorite part about the stage each of your kids is in?
I encourage you to live in the moment, don’t rush it or wish it away. Take mental notes, make time to play, get on their level, and let them show you the world through their eyes. Whatever stage they’re in will be gone before you know it. So even though you might be in a funny phase or going through a rough time, remember this is the last day they’ll be as young as they are. Let them give you sticky kisses, let them hug you with dirty hands, let them fall asleep in your arms because one day you’ll look back and treasure those moments. ❤
