We have spent the entire week hanging out with Olivia activities. I sincerely hope that through these activities, you have had a chance to connect with your little and get to know each other better. Maybe you made a smoothie and found out your little doesn’t like cherries or maybe a future grandchild will be named Olivia. You never know what kind of things you will learn when you hang out with the young people!
Today, I am so excited to bring you an exclusive PRINTABLE that’s pictured above! I know! So awesome!
Ok, so for some context…
For the first season of the Olivia show on Nick Jr., she tells a “rule of life” during each episode. Like…
~If you really wanna hide your baby brother make sure his diaper’s changed first
~Sometimes your lucky tights are even luckier than you thought (note to self: I’ve got to get me some of these)
~Never seat your customers under some angry squirrels with acorns…..unless they insist (another good one to remember)
~If it weren’t for mothers, little brothers would be very stinky
So, I thought it would be fun to turn this around a little and ask adults what life lessons the littles in their lives have taught them. The answers were fantastic!
~I have learned to appreciate the simple things in life again
~To really, really pay attention to the person speaking to you; they tell such elaborate stories sometimes, I HAVE to pay attention
~Remember there sweet little prayers at night because they are quieting down and really thinking of others besides themselves
~Listen with your eyes, not just your ears.
~Cuddles always help.
~Naps help too
~Faith and imagination
~My girls taught me that they were only a temporary gift and must disappear one day
~Life is fleeting, childhood even more so.
Aren’t these wonderful?! Sometimes it’s hard to remember to slow down and cherish the moment we are in. I’m super guilty of this! So remember: “Life is fleeting, childhood even more so.”
Now, wait no longer! Here is today’s free PRINTABLE!
