I often give myself a hard time because I think I don’t do enough with my kids. I worry I miss opportunities to fill their childhoods with memories and fun…or something like that.
You know what I’m talking about. You probably do it, too. The guilt you're not giving your kids a proper childhood...ugh.
While thinking about what I wanted to accomplish in 2015, I vowed that I would do more with the kids because (this is what I told myself) we never do anything.
Fast forward to a few hours later when I’m making a photo book for Lincoln’s fifth birthday: I make a book for him every year highlighting the year before and people sign it at his party like a guest book/yearbook kind of thing.
Anyway, I had so many pictures of small trips out of town, our big vacation to Texas, visits with friends, activities around town, baking and cooking adventures at home, game playing, trips to the park, general goofiness, and many more things we’ve done.
I’m so happy to see that we HAVE been doing things – big and small. We’ve been putting the quality in quality time and here I am worried I didn’t give that to them. I DID! YAY ME (and my husband)! GO US!
So, in 2015, when it comes to this topic, I’d like to continue what we’ve been doing. We’ve got it down so I’m going to worry less about it. Thank God.
Do you have a resolution/goal for your family this year?
I hope you all have wonderful 2015’s with nothing but love, luck, peace…and LESS GUILT!
