A Lovely Reminder to Myself

As a parent I often lose focus. I am bombarded by the ins and outs of everyday life that I forget to slow down and appreciate the two little ones that are quickly growing and creating their own independence. I wrote this down in my journal for a reminder that I need to live in these moments.


Find more time.

Enjoy the moments.

Embrace the smiles.

Hold on a little tighter.

Take deep breaths.

Get down on their level.

Speak softly.

Teach them wisely.

Get silly.

Hug a little longer.

Avoid distractions.

Let them help.

Count to ten.

Remember consistency.

Treasure the laughter.

Remember the tears.


Hold their hand.

Read more.

Worry less.

Continue to dance.

Give total attention.

Love who they are.
