One thing that is so important to me is that my children grow up with incredible memories from their childhood. We try to do things as a family that really make an impact on them. For example, Friday nights are family night. We travel and have busy schedules during the week so we make sure that we have Friday nights reserved for our kids. We love to do things they love.
Last night we had a birthday party for my youngest daughter. She had 20 friends over to spend the night and we had a blast. Really all of the children were darn near perfect. There was not one incident at all! How awesome it was! We took them all to Nakatos and then had a Japanese party with candy sushi. We had so much fun making it with those candy fish, rice crispy treats and green fruit roll-ups as the seaweed! Oh ya we used chocolate sauce as the soy sauce too. The girls had a blast and so did Troy and I! I think Troy only got frazzled at dinner when 20 girls needed to go to the bathroom all at the same time. He said they learn that whole group bathroom thing early.
Bottom line is I love my children and I want them to always know how much they mean to us. Doing things that make them smile makes me smile. Even if I am a little sleep deprived I still totally enjoyed myself, maybe even as much as the girls did! We are making great memories!
What memories do you hold dear from your childhood?
