Things I Want to Teach My Children Everyday

I’m guest posting over at Bloom on Tuesday, writing on the topic of intentional parenting.  This is something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately and I’m excited to have the chance to put my thoughts into words.  For now, here’s a little preview… I put together this print to remind myself of the things I want to teach my children every day.  It’s available for free download here if you like.


And speaking of free printables, I’ve found a few more that might be useful for summertime.  Click through for the goods.


Left: I love the look of this print from Wonderful Joy Ahead and I think hanging it up somewhere in the house would be a great daily reminder of what summertime is really all about.


Top right: Growing up my mother harped on the hydration thing so much, there’s a running joke in my house that she can fix any problem with a bottle of water.  And while I used to roll my eyes every time she’d hand me a bottle, I now find myself offering my own kids water 20 times a day (I guess it’s true – we all eventually become our parents).  However, I could still use a reminder to get my eight glasses a day and I think this adorable printable might be just the thing.


Bottom right: This summer reading kit from Zakka Life is the perfect way to get your kids excited about weekly trips to the library.
