What do you want to remember is a question that was sparked off as I thought about my children. At the moment they each do little things that in a way of a gesture means so much more than words can describe. It is how they make you feel as you know the weight behind their words or actions.
What do you want to remember?
What do your children (or did your children) do or say that you want to remember forever?
Here is my Current List:-
Nevaeh:- the way she says ‘I Love you Mummy’ it is with such intense sincerity and the hug that goes with it is equally so ♥
Grace:- the way she says ‘I love you Mummy’ or ‘I love you Daddy’ which is then followed with ‘you’re my favourite’ without any sort of favouritism at all but instead it is said in such a way that means saying I love you isn’t enough of a description as to how I feel ♥
Alina:- That when you pick her up and give her a cuddle or carry her to bed she taps my arm or shoulder in the reassuring way I do to her when I am trying to calm her down – it truly melts my heart ♥
Soraya:- The way her whole body shows in way of movement and excitement when I walk into the room and also the way that when she is upset and I pick her up she just melts into my arms and is if to say that’s better I feel all good now… ♥
Of course there are so many other things I would like to remember too like how Alina is so engrossed in her imaginative play you can almost see it as a movie playing in her head or the way Nevaeh and Grace role play (when they are having more tolerant moments together!) or the way that Soraya gets so excited when her sisters interact with her. But the moments above are my favourites.
What are yours?
