How do you Cherish Childhood?

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Gymboree. All of the thoughts are my own.

Sebby, my oldest started kindergarten last week. As he grinned at me while waiting for the bus, I was reminded of how far he has come, and how quickly our little ones grow up. His younger sister, Quincy starts preschool this coming Monday and their littlest brother, Edison, just turned 6 months old this week.

My little ones the day they were born…

Cherish Childhood

How does it go by so fast? There are days I wish I could slow down time and cherish childhood more than I already do.

Make the days last longer. Play harder. Cuddle more.

Take notice of the little things your kids do. Get down on their level. Experience their joy.

Because before you know it you have a kindergartner…

And a preschooler…

  1. Your children are so adorable! The first two pictures of your babies remind me of my first and just how scary of a start our life together began. It does make you realize just how precious our days are.

  2. I love the pictures of your kids! I can’t believe that Edison and Lil Miss are 6 months old already!!! Seriously, did we not just give birth!?

  3. Your children are so sweet. Edison is getting so big. Love all of your photos. I try to cherish every single childhood moment. I try to never wish any of it away.

  4. Oh, I love those pictures! And Q’s dress is absolutely adorable! 🙂 My oldest started Kinder a week ago and it’s been hard on me, emotionally.. A part of me is excited for him but another part (the bigger part) doesn’t want him to grow up so fast!
