As my girls get older and I realize that time really does fly when you are a parent, I never believed it until I have seen for myself how quickly our kids grow and you want to hold onto every moment just a little bit longer.
My husband and I are so blessed to have two beautiful girls who truly love each other so much. They show each other how much they truly love one another by doing the little things like; making cards for one another, getting a band-aid when their sister has a boo-boo, or getting a snack for their sister when they get one for themselves. They might make each other cry at times and argue (what siblings don’t fight?) but, in the end they are each other’s best friends and ours, too.
I don’t know about you but, a New Year means a new list of goals my husband and I have come up with together.
These goals are improvements we want to make in the upcoming year not only for ourselves but, also for our family. Yes, I know it is almost February but, you do not have to put the goals you came up with aside and wait for January 1st of next year. Let’s not be so hung up on the day of the week or the start date. Let’s be honest any day you decide to make positive changes in your life is the perfect day to start.
My daughter had a goal and NEVER gave up and she accomplished her goal.
Being a parent is awesome for so many reasons but, it is kind of cool if you think about it that we get to see what it is like to be a child again through our kids. As time goes on we forget things and having kids is a reminder of the things that were HUGE to you back then and that we take for granted now. For instance, tying our shoes.
The encouragement of a sibling can be the most powerful thing! My youngest daughter has been very stubborn about going poop on the potty. She has been having potty success with a lot of positive encouragement from her family and especially her older sister.
Thanksgiving is a day to enjoy all the blessings in our lives! I have to say we are so blessed to have such amazing family and friends in our lives and we always look forward to reflecting back on the year and giving thanks!
