Letters to our Children – May Edition – Alliston Photographer
Another month has gone by and I can’t believe it! I know I say this too often, but time really does fly. In this past month you have changed- you are all growing, teeth have been lost, you’ve learned new skills, new words and you are eating more! As often as I say that time moves so quickly, I’m learning to slow down in cherishing my moments with you.
It’s in the moments where you all come to me need hugs, kisses or a quick cuddle. That’s when time is slow. This is what my heart is capturing and putting away to treasure forever! It’s the moments where we can sit on the front porch and create dusty, messy masterpieces with giant pieces of chalk and spend so much time getting it right that the powder from the chalk lines your little toes and ends up on your sweet faces.
It’s the moments where you pause to look around you- to observe what’s happening. You are taking it all in. It’s in the moments where I look at you and notice how much you are growing- physically! Your legs are stretching and your teeth are falling out! You are all experiencing more of life. It amazes me how much the outdoors fuels your souls. You come alive when you are reaching for the next height as you pump your legs on your backyard swing. You smile as the wind hits your faces and blows your hair in every direction. It’s like the warm spring air ignites a yearning for exploration.
As you grow, I’m growing right alongside you. You teach me about patience- about slowing down. You teach me about cherishing the little things. You teach about what it is like to observe. And I’m thankful that not only am I your mother but somewhere along the way you three little ones because my teacher.
With my love,
