How do you want your child to remember you? Be that mom today.
Ok, where were we? Sorry for the break, but I was focusing on enjoying the Christmas holiday with my family. As vacation comes to a close, it’s time to refocus on this Mom Challenge.
In thinking about how I want my children to remember me, I came up with the following…
(And, of course, the best baker ever!)
Those are not always easy characteristics to embody. Today, I focused on fun. We woke up to a blanket of snow outside. Heck, it was more than a blanket. It was about 6 blankets! So much snow – a great intro to our first New England winter. After breakfast, the kids were eager to get outside and play. I kept telling them that once we did the work of cleaning off the cars and shoveling the driveway and sidewalk, Mommy and Daddy could play too. I used to keep myself dry and warm inside when it snowed in Maryland, mostly because I wasn’t fully prepared with the right gear. But last year I bought snow pants for the sole purpose of playing with the kids! They came in handy again today. I made snow angels, tried to throw snowballs (the snow wasn’t cooperating), and we made our first ever “Snow-bot!” I hope these fun memories are the ones my children will remember years down the road.
