Want in on a little secret?
There is absolutely nothing I enjoy more than seeing toothy/toothless smiles, or hearing our boys belly laugh, but some days, it takes a conscious effort to refocus. I have to remind myself that whatever seems super important in the moment can wait – work, dishes, laundry, etc. Time with my kids is fleeting and irretrievable; for the few years we have them at home, it’s up to us as parents to make them feel seen, heard, and so incredibly loved.
So I try to find little things for us to do together, to squeeze in moments of joy, and these little things grow into something much bigger. As the proverb says, ‘ you reap what you sow’ and I’m in the mood to sow happiness.
If you too want to create special moments that make your little ones feel hugely important, here are some of my favorite ideas for Easter!
After all this, might they still have dirty clothes? Of course they will. Feel loved, remember this when they’re adults, or give you bonus hugs? Absolutely. And besides, wouldn’t you rather eat pancakes with your babes than just clean the syrup off them? You have the gumption to make their days special – get started making those memories!
P.S. Is this your first Easter together? Snag a set of our ‘first’ holiday milestones and start planning your family photo!
