What memories come to mind when you think of your childhood? Here are a few simple childhood memories that come to my mind.
- Wet grass
- A warm breeze
- Running so fast your legs feel like they might fall off
- Picnic in the park
- A bike ride
- Playing hide-and-seek with your neighborhood friends
Are these memories elaborate? NO! These are simple childhood memories! These are the most meaningful!
Wonderful memories often come from the simplest of things. A lot of parents stress over coming up with fun and exciting things to do with their kids and you don’t have to. Anything you do with your kids where you are really, 100% present….THIS is what means the most to them. This is what they will remember the most. This is what YOU want them to remember.
Enjoy the simple moments and please don’t stress about new ideas and activities. Sure every now and again it is nice to do something elaborate, but for the most part SIMPLE IS BEST for you and your child.
Just be there, be present, be in their world!
