    Loved this. We tend to forget how necessary it is to make time to play with our kids since we have so many “grownup things” to take care of, but there are some really great lessons that can be learned from it! I have fun just listening to my kiddos play pretend because of the amazing things they come up with sometimes.

    1. Thanks, Marisa. So true. Everytime I tune into my son’s pretend play sessions, I learn so many amazing things about the kind of person he is becoming. It’s an absolute pleasure! Thanks for stopping by.

    Daisy, I really love #3. Anything broken can be mended. This is hard to remember as an adult!

    1. I know. As adults, we become so cynical! I see my son gathering tiny pieces of broken toys with absolute hope in his eyes that the toy is not done yet and I try really hard to remember that when I am giving up on something. Thank you for stopping by and commenting 🙂

  3. These are great! I’d add #11 Have a good cry once in awhile. Sometimes life is hard and we need to admit it. Trying to hold all our emotions inside all the time makes me stress!

    1. Thank you, Jen. And yes, I so agree. We tend to bottle everything up because “we are grown ups, that’s what we are supposed to do!”. But it doesn’t have to be so. Admitting that our life is not a walk in the park every now and then can do so much good to us and our families. Thanks for this important #11 point and for stopping by 🙂

  4. I agree these lessons are so true. I love how children can teach us so much! If we only stop and pay attention, then we can see that their way of thinking has so much power.

    1. Thank you, Healing Mama. And I agree. Children have as much to teach us and perhaps even more than we teach them. If only, we look closely. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  5. Aww, I love this! We really should see the world through our children’s eyes instead of our own. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Rachel. Yes, their perspectives are so much more uncomplicated. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
