Reata and Ryder will be starting Kindergarten. Time really does go by fast. #twinmom
With summer winding down, I have the back-to-school jitters. Or maybe I should call them "Mom Thoughts”- you know those thoughts that bring tears down your face. The thoughts that you will never forget. The thoughts about how fast kids really grow up. Over the course of this summer, I have been thinking about this new school year and what advice and/or rules that I would tell the kids when our school days start. The kids have been counting the days of summer that we have left. I, on the other hand, can barely talk about it without this large lump forming in my throat, which brings me into my list of thoughts… *Don't forget to Pray. God is with you every day, even in school. *Every day surround yourself with friends that lift you up. And if you find that your friends aren't lifting you up, quickly leave. *Don't judge. Show Love. *Be a gentleman, or a lady. ALWAYS *Chose your girlfriends/boyfriend wisely. *Never lie. EVER. *We are your parents, we have been in school, and you still have to obey us. We know more just because we are older and have been there and done that. *Don't ever be afraid to say NO. I would rather you say NO and be the “uncool kids” than have you hurt, or worse have to bury you. *If you fall, get up and try again. If you have to sit the bench, give a little more than you did the week before. If your friend falls, help him/her up and encourage them to keep going. *Think before you speak. *Selfies are for your face ONLY. *Be humble. *Be helpful. *If it's not godly, don't do it. *Every single day is a new day and a new start. Make them the best that you can. *Remember this - you may not always get what you wish for, but you always get what you work for. *Don't ever forget that your mom and dad love you and are proud of you each and every day. Here's to all to have a good school year. I would like to hear from you, do you have a thought that we can add to mine? Has school started for your kids?
