Things My Kids Need Me to Remember

Monday, August 18, 2008

Stop freaking out about the mess! There's always time to clean- but how often do we get to make mud pies?

Love me, even when I'm naughty. I'll only be this age once.

Be patient. I do everything for a reason, but I just don't know enough words yet to give you an explanation.

Don't expect too much from me. I want to do what you ask and expect of me, but I am still little.

Let me do it. I know you can do it better and faster, but sometimes experience is the best teacher.

Keep your promises. It's all about trust. When I am a teenager, you'll see why it's so important.
