Life is sweet and we have so much to be thankful for. Having a family is wonderful and sharing time with them is amazing. There are so many sweet moments to enjoy and we all need to try to slow down from our busy lives and enjoy it as best we can. From the big and very special, like going to Disney on vacation, to the small and everyday, like a family group hug before bedtime, life is full of sweet moments to cherish and remember. We all have so much going on, I know, but I really think trying to make the day sweeter for your family is an important part of life and of being a parent.
I try to make our family trips a little bit sweeter, too. Sometimes I like to make up a special T-shirt to commemorate the trip or create something unique to stick to our hotel room door. The kids love it, the pictures during the trip just pop, and the memories seem to be just a touch sweeter. When possible, I sometimes like to call the hotel ahead of time and see if they can put something special in the room before we arrive — flowers, a plush toy or a tray of something yummy. Yes, I know, it can sound over-the-top, but the thrill on the kids’ faces and the delight they get really makes it worthwhile . . . we can save some of that money elsewhere on the trip!
How do you try to make your family life a little bit sweeter? I would love to hear all about it. The more ideas, the better!!
