It may sound cliche, but our children really do seem to grow up right before our eyes. I remember being a kid and feeling like the school year lasted for-ever! It seemed so long, like it would never end. When I would play with my older sister and her friends, I felt like I would never be big enough. I would never grow up! These days, I would give my right arm to slow the clock down. The pages of the calendar just seem to flip by and my children seem taller every time I turn around. With 4 young kids, it seems that hardly a week goes by without reaching another milestone of some sort...graduating from potty training, a tooth lost, shoes learning to be tied, a first pimple, and the birthdays come so quickly!
That's why it is so important to me to record those every day moments in our lives. I am hardly ever without a camera, even if it's just my phone. I take pictures daily and I know I will cherish all of those memories for years to come.
Gymboree has launched a campaign to celebrate those cherished memories in our children's lives. They have put together this amazing video to share and encourage moms and dads everywhere to take a moment to reflect on their own precious life moments.
I hope you will take a moment to take stock in your precious memories. Please feel free to share your thoughts here if you'd like.
