Things To Do This Spring

Sometimes I’m so busy taking care of responsibilities and cleaning up my kid’s messes I’ve become the mom who is dull and boring. I’ve become the mom who doesn’t laugh much and frankly, that scares me. I don’t want them to remember me as the mom who never smiled. What about you?

Now more than ever I’ve decided to be the mom who laughs and jokes; the mom who plays and enjoys her time with her kids, right along with the mom who cleans up poop messes and milk spills. Do you want to be that happy mom with me?

Because these kids aren’t going to be little long we have to enjoy the precious moments we have with them. Before we know it they will be grown and gone and memories will be what they have left of their beautiful childhood.

What memories do you want your kids to have of you? I don’t know about you, but I want my kids to remember me as being a happy and fun mom. So, here are ways to be a fun, laughing, smiling, happy mom.
