Summer is upon on and this is the perfect time to invest in the relationship with our kids. There are so many wonderful things you can do this summer, the years you have with your children are going so fast. Just look at your pictures of last summer or the size clothes/shoes they were in. If you have really young children, just look at how many more words they are saying or steps they are taking. We only have one chance to raise them. I have a teen now and I can’t believe how fast time went, I still remember him as a tiny baby. He is 16 and way taller than me.
So all of that said:
Don’t let the summer go by
without playing in the rain
having ice cream or a Popsicle on the porch
engaging in great conversation
enjoying summer food (grilled hot dogs are a favorite around here)
Spending days at the park
Taking a swim in a lake, pool or ocean
Reading great books together
Whatever you do, have a great time and use this time to remind your kids how much you love them, how much you are enjoying these moments with them and don’t blink! When you do they will be taller than you!
