When I look at my children I wonder to my self if they will remember these moments. I wonder if they will cherish these moments when they are older and look back and tell their children.

Sitting here today I was thinking about my childhood and what I did. Going over to the park and building dens in the ditch with my sisters, family holidays to the beach, family day outs to the cinema followed by a cheeky McDonalds. These are some of my favourite memories I have (obviously there are more!) I love the fact that Moo and Thor are going to build up so many memories together and hopefully one day will look back and smile on them and reminisce.

I know at the moment they are only 4 and 2 (nearly) and we have so many years to build on these memories and add so many more to the pile, but I feel like I should be writing these moments down so I should remember them, so when I am old, I should be saying

Do you remember when you used too run around like supergirl Moo? 

Thor you used to pretend to be superman, do you remember?

Do you remember the family holiday we went on, we went to the beach and you went swimming in the sea? 

Do you remember we used to dance around at 4°clock everyday to pass the time?

I am just happy knowing my children have each other to share their memories with, and they have a lifetime to build them together.

Ive decided to link up with the lovely Lucy at dearbeautifulboy for her new informal linky called “mama love” pop over and take a look if you want to join in!

    I think that building memories for our children is one of the best things we can do, as parents. It makes a childhood! Lovely post 🙂

    I love making memories with my children,they are older now but sometimes we sit together and play ‘Can you remember….’ and its brill!I see smiles on their faces and that’s when I know that Iam doing it right.
    So I say…keep making those memories..the kids WILL remember for sure!
