What Mama Learned Last Week: On Good Dads and Kids Growing Up Too Fast

Motherhood is full of lessons and sometimes, I’m open to learning them. Here’s what I picked up last week in this week’s edition of  What Mama Learned.

Father's Day Ideas: The MamaZone

It’s time to rock Father’s Day.

I spent a lot of time pulling together Father’s Day ideas last week and the kids and I are gearing up to make my husband’s day amazing. It’s no secret that dads get much less fanfare than we do on Mother’s Day. It’s time to rock Father’s Day and I’m working to make sure you #DontFlopOnPop ;-). Check out my Father’s Day landing page for all the help you need. Whether you use some of those ideas or your own, make sure you work hard to let dad know how special he is.

My kids are growing up too fast.

I ran across some baby pictures last week and went on to spend hours looking back on the days when my kids were small. I can’t believe that they’re getting closer and closer to the day they’ll move out and do all they do without me. Of course, I’ll be proud, but I already miss them!

This is why I force them to let me take lots of pictures. They hate it most of the time, but I won’t let that stop me. I’m glad I have an arsenal of memories to hold on too. They’re growing up so fast and this is my only way to slow the process just a bit.

I love watching my husband be a dad.

I just do. I’m sure it has a lot to do with the fact that I grew up without a father and even more to do with the fact that he’s just a wonderful dad. I’m incredibly grateful to be able to watch him interact with the kids and to watch the kids grow from all he pours into them. It’s something I do not take for granted (and another reminder that we have to make ever Father’s Day AWESOME).

And so ends another week of lessons. As always, I’d love to know what you learned last week. Let’s chat about it in the comments!
