The Most Valuable Thing a Parent Can Do for Their Kids

"Life is not safe, and so our task is not to promise our kids there will be no turbulence. It’s to assure them that when the turbulence comes, we will all hold hands and get through it together. We do not promise them a heartache-free life, but we do assure them that the slings and arrows won’t kill them— in fact, they will make them kinder, wiser, more resilient. We look them right in the eye, point them to their pain, and say: “Don’t be afraid, baby. You were born to do this.”


Mothers love taking pictures of their kids. All you need to do is scroll through Instagram to see how snap-happy we are. However, have you noticed that we are rarely in the pictures? We're either taking pictures of our kids or taking pictures of everyone else with our kids, but that needs to change. One day, all our kids will have are pictures to remember us by so we need to make sure we are in them! Don't worry about your hair or your makeup or your body - just get in the picture with your kids because all they'll want to see one day is you. ❤️
