Holly & Heather’s Helpful Hint: Appreciate Your Children!

by helpinghandstwins

Our kids are growing so fast and while we are in the thick of raising them, sometimes it’s easy to lose perspective of the time we have together at home while they are young.  We realize that soon they will be old enough to fly the coop and begin their lives as adults.  We love to say – the days are long but the years are short – this was especially true when they were infants!  But now that they’re older, we try not to get caught up in the minutia of adolescence but rather enjoy their company and appreciate every moment.  It’s a delicate balance – we are still imparting our wisdom and trying hard to raise good, honest, productive members of society.  Teaching them life lessons and worrying about their education, health and happiness – it’s a lot of work!  Spend some quality time with your kids.  Have lunch together or play a game.  Listen to what they have to say and appreciate them for who they are.  They are our greatest gifts!
