Cherish the Funny Things Kids Say
This is my best piece of advice for parents of young kids – write every funny thing they do or say down! You think you will remember forever what it was like at this age but those memories fade. Whenever my kids said anything that made me giggle I would write it down, then pick my favourite ones to engrave into an ornament. My kids are older now and they LOVE putting these on our Christmas tree. It makes them laugh out loud to see what their younger selves thought of the world.
It’s not just for them…
These ornaments do more than bring a smile to my kids faces every year. They remind my now teenage children about the love they have for me. Selfish, I know, but it was a surprising realization that when we put these on the tree, we would naturally tell stories of what they were like when they were younger. These were stories that come easily for me, but my kids barely remember that time at all. When they read the funny things they say, it reminds them that there is a strong undercurrent of love and connection that runs through our family – even if they see us as annoying and embarrassing now.
