“Children will not remember you for the material things that you provided but for the feeling that you cherished them.” - Richard Evans
Just yesterday I was going through my phone and re-watching videos I had taken a year ago. Kids change so fast … soooo fast. Makes me wonder if I really enjoyed the moments as much as I think I did. Makes me wonder if I really will remember their little voices or other small details or will it all fade away with time. I think that I won’t forget … but watching those videos is a realization that time moves quickly and that there are details that are forgotten. For this reason … I will take more videos and I will make sure I capture my kids just the way they are because …
I don’t want to forget…
The way they held hands.
The sweet way Nyomi looks at Nadya.
The way they look at each other.
Nyomi looking for ladybugs.
The way Nadya held her hair out of her face.
Their favorite stuffed animals.
The way Dylan’s hair sticks up at the back.
The way Nyomi stands when she’s feeling anxious.
The way Dylan always follows Nyomi around.
How goofy Dylan can be.
The way Nadya looks at Nyomi.
The way they run and smile.
The way they bond.
I’m one lucky mama.
