Our little guy is 3 months away from being 4.
Our little girl is 2 months away from being 2.
The inevitable. They are growing up. I knew this would happen. But it feels like it happened over night!
The good thing with it feeling like it happened before my eyes is that it is like a “wake up call”. My little babies are not babies anymore. They are walking, talking little human beings who are out to make an incredible difference on this earth. They were born with great missions and by golly, I want them to be ready for this game called life!
So, a few days ago, I WOKE UP! I thought motherhood had its moments but now I feel like I need to do some serious stretching and get my game face on! I got some serious parenting to do!
Instead of being the referee between their “grab the toy from you”, I will be their coach.
Instead of being the police and putting someone in the corner, I will be their ally and advocate for what works.
I want to empower my kids to be able to handle LIFE. In ALL its challenges and ALL its glory.
The Fair, the Unfair, the Justified and unjustified. The lovers, The haters, The bullies and pushovers.
The opportunist, the willing.
I will also be posting my successes and failures on my 3 month Journey to empowering them!
Let the journey begin!
First Step: I am declaring who I am for my kids.
Second Step: I am declaring who my KIDS are for ME. (Not who they are NOW. But who they are in the future. And this is how I will see them NOW so they can step INTO that and become it for themselves)
Who I am is Inspiration, Love, Presence and Power
Who my son is for me is Confident, Loving, Kind, understood and Happy
Who my daughter is for me is Self-Expressed, gifted healer, gentle and funny
