How lovely and how true!
Children remember the time and the adventures spent together.
Okay I can admit what child does not appreciate the material gestures.
What child does not enjoy a few healthy meals here and there or would not live a new car!
A clean home? well some children appreciate while others, well I think with others we can see how important cleaning is when we look in their bedrooms .
Of course we want a clean home and for our children to eat healthy nutritious meals.
We want to educate them, we are invested in their learning.
We want them to have the best things or their every desires.
But I can tell you some of our greatest memories as a family are our trips, adventures quality time spent together.
It costs nothing to share time, love advice, explore go on adventures.
I call these precious moments building memories!
Focusing on building memories rather than a child’s collection of material possessions, or expensive holidays is far more beneficial and rewarding.
Do not get me wrong a holiday, clean home, smart children is important lessons and teachings for a child but do not forget the simple things such as giving your time because time can not be taken back. We do not know what tomorrow holds so live every day as if it were your last and stop, slow down and just chill with your children.
Listen to them more, allow them to see you slow down take a breath and see you more.
What is motherhood? Motherhood is love and a precious gift of life. It is a journey it is about building memories.
We are not in competition with each other so do not compare or compete with others build your own memories and enjoy your journey.
Remember to stay blessed and fabulous!
