Celebrating cherished moments with my children #cherishchildhood is very important to me. Every day my children are doing things that blow my mind. The kids are accomplishing things for the first time, hitting milestones, and growing so quickly. Jasmine is already asking for a computer, and she’s only 6 years old. It seems children grow up faster and faster these days, which makes celebrating special moments with each other much more important.
Lately, homework has started to ruin playtime for us, but sadly, homework is necessary. I still mix in some fun with homework, it’s the only way to keep Jasmine interested. As Jasmine gets older and her homework load increases, I find myself trying to come up with new ways to keep her interested and to keep it fun. I love it when I hear Jasmine proclaim that I’m the best mommy ever, and that I’m so much fun. When Jasmine looks back at her childhood I want her to think of homework time as a cherished moment in her life.
I did catch my little girl writing her name in cursive. I’m so happy I captured this important cherished moment. I love watching Jasmine get so excited and proud of herself when she answers a question correctly, or spells one of her spelling words right, and especially when she writes her name and letters in perfect cursive. I like seeing Jasmine’s confidence grow.
Cherished moments can come from anywhere and happen at anytime. How do you celebrate cherished moments with your family?
I’ve been actively trying to make sure my kids have as little stress as possible. Plus we always have something fun for them to do whether it be painting a birdhouse, going to the zoo, or hanging out and watching a movie together.
Lots of pics! I always have my phone with me so I can capture the memories.
I try and record all I can – whether that is pictures and video or its in their quote books. I want to remember everything!
Playing every day and trying not to feel guilty about what we DON’T do!
We just started Kindergarten homeschool. We finished our 10th day today. It has been going well. But my daughter hates her “homework” worksheets. They are usually an educational coloring page too and not “boring” at all. I need some creative ways to make it “fun” for her 🙂
