Disclosure Cherish Childhood with Gymboree

I love my children to pieces. I wish they would stay little forever, but time has flown by! I can’t believe that my two babies are now in 2nd grade and Kindergarten and that my newborn is well on her way to 7 months old, eating, sitting up unassisted, and soon to be crawling I’m sure!

Each day is a reminder to cherish childhood – to cherish their childhood – and to soak up every second I can with them!

As we head into the busy back-to-school season (busy is an understatment!), Gymboree will be celebrating and sharing cherished moments in childhood.

The other day, I wrote a letter to my children with my wish for them. But, today, I join Gymboree in celebrating and share some (all of them would take more than one post!) cherished memories of my kids with you!

From the Mouths of Babes:

Buggy: I have a friend named Ellie from China.

Buddy: If she lived in China she’d be late everyday.

Earlier today Buddy told me he wanted hearing aids. I asked him why and his response? “So when people tell me things that I don’t want to hear, I can just turn them off and not hear them.”

The other day, Buddy and I were driving to a playdate together and he asked me if I liked something (I can’t remember what it was, but I think it was a song). I told him that I did and he stated he did too. He asked me if I liked another something and again, I said I did. His response this time? “Me too. It’s like we’re twins.”

  1. Buddy would love that my friend Jenn that DOES wear hearing aids turns hers off when she doesn’t want to listen to people! :)

  8. The photos of your kids makes me smile. :)

    I used to write a weekly letter to Brecken with plans to give them to her in a bound book when she got married. I need to get back in that habit.

  10. I love listening to the things kids say. We have one that is so very random that I actually keep a list of things she says that make me smile on my phone. Always there to glance over when I need a giggle.
