It just seems like yesterday that my daughter was born and now she is almost two years old. Almost everyday I hear, “They grow up so fast.” Are you making the most of your time with your daughter? Are you teaching her all those life lessons you meant to when you said, “When I have my own children I’ll _________ (fill in the blank).”
It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life and forget what you were attempting to do, what kind of parent you were hoping to be, what type of child you ultimately wanted to raise. Don’t let the busyness of life creep up on you and leave you not fullfilling the things you had hoped to as a parent. You truly cannot get that time and the opportunity back.
So, take some time today to either spend time with your daughter one on one in a teachable moment or just doing something fun together, either way I’m sure you’ll be glad that you did, no matter what the result is. There is nothing more precious to have than time spent with your child.
Then, maybe consider doing a special project together that will record the memories of your time spent together, create a video, a scrapbook, a journal whatever you choose make it special and unique to your relationship, helping to chronicle your memories and giving you something to look back to in the future and reminisce. You will be glad you did!
