Ok, this may seem dumb to some of you, why do I need so many printabes? Really? A download for a list of pictures?
This is what I have learned as a mom of 4. The older ladies that tell you to enjoy every moment? Well, guess what!?!? I did, and I'm so glad I did. My oldest is an adult this year and I'm glad that I slowed down to enjoy the little moments. I'm glad I did things the way I did them, because I only have 18 summers with each of my 4 babies until they start dreaming big. Yes, we are a close family, so I don't feel like I'm losing my kiddos, but they start working and their life begins to change. I'm privileged that my kids still want mom days with me. Each month I rotate a kid and they get a day just them and me. Whatever they want to do. Check out my blog post later this week on the fun we have had.
So, back to this download. What should you own it? Because for me, I get up before my monkeys and plan, think, and get ready for the crazy day we will have. Little things like these planners and right in front of me to remind me to slow down and enjoy the little things when I'm tempted to do the 'mom' thing and take pin the world.
How I use it:
At the start of every year and the beginning of each month, I jot down moments I don't want to miss. These are my photo moment s for that month.
Do we have a trip planned? Is someone graduating? Who's month is it to have a 'mom day'? Do we have a field trip planned? The list goes on, make it yours and enjoy the little things.
