For those of you that have children I’m sure you will agree with me when I say that they grow SO FAST!!!! My husband and I have five beautiful children. Two 8 year olds, a 4 and 3-year-old and a 10 month old.
It’s awesome to see them grow and have different personalities but at the same time it kinda makes you sad. My youngest will be a year in a little over a month and my 4-year-old will be turning 5 soon! Our 8 year olds will be teens in a few years-it seems really crazy saying that. Man!! Where did the time go?
With that being said, there are going to be a long series of blogs that I’m dedicating specifically to parenting, spending time with our children, fun family games, ect.
Two things that we never get back are our words and our time. It would be nice if we could rewind time but we can’t. Time is a gift believe it or not and it’s up to us how we choose to spend it. Jobs can come and go and so can friends but outside of God our families need to be our #1 priority!!!
Do you place your family first or are they sometimes put on the back burner for other people or things? Who wants a life full of regrets, I know I don’t. Spend time with your children while you can because they don’t stay children for ever and every moment counts. If you aren’t active in your children’s life it’s never too late to put in some effort.
Take some time today and play with your kids, laugh with them and talk to them. See what’s new in their life, you’ll be glad you did. Try to dedicate at least one night a week as family night! No interruptions, just you guys!
