Is this a hard one for you to remember as a parent too?

You’re not alone.

My goal is to remember to let my children share their thoughts and feelings more.

Such A Great Reminder With The School Year Around The Corner.

As I watched this YouTube clip, I couldn’t help but share.

As a former teacher myself, it is easy to quickly “judge” a student by their behavior.

But I loved that Mr. Jensen dug a little bit deeper.

Mr. Jensen went crossed the grain and was able to help one student feel better about himself, and it was life-changing!

Such a beautiful message!

I think we could all use a few more Mr. Jensen’s in the world!

A Few Things I Have Learned About Parenting In The Last 7 Years…

It’s hard to narrow down all that I have learned about parenting in my last 7 years.

My cute oldest son

A few things that stand out:

-Kids are very forgiving as we learn to parent them.

-I may be in charge of helping my kids learn and grow, but I can NOT control everything they do…even if I want to. It’s hard to send your kids to school all day and know that all that happens to them is out of your hands, however, kids do learn the best this way, when they are solving problems on their own. We can’t bubble wrap our kids through life, even when we feel like we want to. And I will admit, I want to a lot. However, I constantly remind myself to put my faith in my children and their abilities.

(Below is a video discussing a few things I am learning as a parent.)

Flashback To Time Well Spent On A Cruise…

Flashback to 2012 with me…it’s crazy to think that was an entire decade ago!

Just me and my parents went on a Canadian Cruise.

My mom had always wanted to go on a Canadian cruise.

I was single, and they invited me and I was in!

I had never really thought much about Canada or seeing it…but goodness it was beautiful!

This picture is of my dad and I in Montreal, Canada:

(PS-Isn’t My Dad such a handsome man?! He has the kindest heart and I am so blessed to be his daughter. And of course my mother is an angel. )

I have some of the fondest memories of this Canadian cruise.

This cruise was so peaceful and fun.

I truly loved the amazing memories made with my parents.

I am so glad I took this chance and opportunity to go on this vacation with my wonderful parents.

I wish I could go again and take my husband and kids along now too.

Maybe one day!

What vacation do you look back on with fondness?

I would love to hear!

What This Picture Tells Me…

I came across this picture on my phone, and I froze.

I looked carefully.

Inspected the photo, and realized it was from about July of 2020.

Not quite 2 years ago, and oh, how things have changed.

Cade 4, Makell 3, Taya 10 months

All 3 of my children are much smaller, wearing different clothing sizes.

My girls have different hairstyles due to their lack of hair that was yet to grow in.

My son hadn’t been to public school yet.

No one could tie their own shoes, and all of them needed my help getting dressed.

There was no pressure of homework and learning to read, the focus was more about playing and having fun.

No one was looking right at the camera, because they didn’t know.

I remember some days thinking, goodness, I wish they were a bit more independent …getting in the car to go anywhere was so, very hard.

And yet, I look at this, and I want to cuddle these little ones again.

Yes, not quite two years have passed and they have grown so much.

Two of them are much more independent.

One has been in public school, one is going to school this fall, and another wishes she was in school.

Yes, time is a thief.

Children are such a blessing, in all phases.

All phases of motherhood is filled with trials, but all phases are full of blessings and joy.

My goal from this sweet, simple picture…

Is to love a little longer, and embrace all the moments.

Time pushes onward, too quick, and too fast.

Enjoy those moments as they come mama.

For they truly sneak by too fast.

xoxo,

Christy Lee
