She doesn’t have to give away all her dolls…
He is going to cry sometimes…
She isn’t always going to remember to put her shoes away…
Sometimes it will end in a melt down…
Some nights she will sleep holding your hand…
Let them be who they are.
Give them what they need right now.
There is no rush.
Let them get messy.
Let them jump in puddles.
Let them be noisy.
Let them be silly.
Let them have cuddles.
Let them be little.
Even the big ones are still little in so many ways.
Don’t push them to grow up too soon, because all too soon they will be already grown.
Let me remember, to let them be little… while they still are.

Oh, this one’s actually so so beautiful! I am already crying thinking about my Lil one. There is absolutely no rush for them to grow up and throw tantrums sometimes. We should encourage our children to be kids and embrace their innocence.
I’m so in love with this..can’t stop to share with my mommy pals.
Wonderful! I think this should be required reading for all parents. We tend to push our oldest child to hurry up and grow up and let the younger child or children have some slack. I love your thinking and your sentiment.
