Looking to make forever memories with your children?
Then find an experience or a, “first” to do with them!
This year I am all about, “experiences” with our children, or giving the gift of experiences!
Today on our children’s day off from school I took them to the top of One World Trade Center in New York City. Watching their expressions, wonder inquisitiveness, and knowledge brought tears to my eyes.
Our daily lives, schedules, routines, and technological advances in the world can sometimes make us loose sight of things. It’s not the materials things children really want, it is time with you!
Whether it be a, “first”, place to visit/vacation, with one or both parents, family or friends, this will be most memorable and forever ingrained in their minds!
Think about the mind of a child, they might reflect about a specific toy/electronic and forget about it in time. What they will remember are things like when you taught them to ride a bike, baking cookies, the first time they went swiming in the ocean, being a guest in their classroom, going on vacation, coaching their sport’s team, a family movie/game night and the list goes on!
Seeing things through your children’s eyes is one of life’s greatest gifts, and in turn will be in theirs!
Take it from a Mom who knows!
