Today when I opened up my WordPress site to write my blog – I was surprised to find a Happy Anniversary card from WordPress to me. Five years ago today, I wrote my first Parent Pulse blog for The Parenting Place.
Wow! Who knew?
It’s hard to believe so many Mondays have gone by that I’ve sat down to share some thoughts with all of you. And it’s all of you who follow, read and share that makes having this blog so rewarding and fun for me.
So really – this anniversary is an anniversary for all of us today.
Because it is your stories, your challenges, your celebrations, your funny, smart children that give me the ideas to write about.
As we go along from day to day, we don’t often stop to consider the milestones in our daily lives. Parents, especially, have so much to recognize, so much to feel they have accomplished. For every stage of childhood passed through is also a stage of parenting – that we grow through together.
And these passages are significant.
Remember to take the time to recognize where you started and what you’ve learned.
Take the time to recognize your growth as a parent.
Take the time to celebrate.
