As some of you may know our lovely social media director, Wendy Bradford, also writes for her own blog Mama One To Three and guest writes for the Huffington Post. I would like to share a few passages from one of her blogs called What Will They Remember, that I hope you enjoy as much as I did:
I hope they remember that we play stickers and cars on the living room floor. I hope they remember I love squeezing them. I hope I smile more than I scowl. That I sing more than I curse. And that they remember I was happy to see them most mornings – their crazy bed hair and missing pajama bottoms. If they remember we were often out of milk or their favorite cereal, I hope they remember I made Mickey Mouse out of waffles, gave them juice sometimes just because they asked and that I sat with them at breakfast drinking my coffee with the moon still outside the window. I hope I remember to keep pushing myself to make their memories sweeter, to look up from my phone when Molly wants to show me a picture, to describe my heart directly to them and not only when I write. Because one day, for all of us, it will be too late for new ones. And they will remember.
Here’s to hoping they remember – and when they do that it makes them smile.
