I feel like now-a-days, less and less I see children out playing in their yards. Drinking from the hose. Having fun the "old fashioned way". Life is full of screens and technology and kids aren't given the opportunity to just be a kid. To have imaginary friends. To learn the hard way you have to wait for the water to cool down before drinking from the hose.
I promised myself if I ever became a mom I would let them be little as long as possible. Let them get road rash from learning to ride a bike. Let them get that horrid burn from sliding down a hot slide too fast.
Let them experience life..because those memories will be worth it when they are older. they wont remember the games they played on their tablets...they will remember the games you played with them in the yard.
A child only gets one childhood.
Let them drink from the hose.
Let them play with that water.
Let them get dirty.
One childhood. That’s it.
Make it worth it.
Make it memorable.
Make it priceless.
“Let them be little, cause they're only that way for a while.
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love, everyday.
Let em cry, let em giggle, let them sleep in the middle.
Oh just let them be little.”
