Listen eagerly to their fabulous tales
Say no, less… say YES more
Have mandatory snuggle time
Plant seeds of delight!
LET them dig for dinosaur bones in the garden
or tunnels to china.
catch them doing so much RIGHT
disregard the small stuff
teach them to climb trees and reach for the stars
do your own inner work and
lead by example
make home made popsicles and mud pie
If they’re being too loud wear earplugs
know when to say no
teach them to be content in the meantime
remind them they are God’s perfect creations
don’t let them grow up too fast
celebrate their smallness
teach compassion, kindness and humility
Switch off the T.V.
look into their eyes
and see the innocence that dwells there.
encourage them to dream BIG
Love them with every ounce of your being.
