Confessions for Kids

I have a bunch of awesome friends, and lots of them were made from our moms group at church. These women amaze me with their creativity, their parenting, and their differences (namely, their differences from me). I’m really grateful they’re talented in ways I couldn’t pretend to be.

One of these women recently posted a picture on Facebook of something she’d shared with us at our last event, and I just had to ask her if I could share her idea. I am not an expert on parenting, and I’m so glad to know other moms so that we can all collaborate and take notes from each other.

The picture she shared was a list of “Confessions” she recites each night with her toddler son. I instantly fell in love with this idea. Not only am I a huge believer in the power of words, but I also know how relevant it is to our situation. My toddler is one intense, smart kiddo. I get overwhelmed by him; I know he gets overwhelmed with himself, too. At this stage in his life, he is so alert to patterns, repetition, and attitudes. What a wonderful opportunity I have to speak this kind of life over him every night.

I thought about attempting to come up with my own list, but I just love hers so much. I went ahead and typed it out, and you can download it as a PDF here - print it out and read it with your littles if you so wish!

Thank you, friend, for allowing me to share your awesome idea!

Also, also! I have another friend from our group who just started a blog – please visit and support! She talks about eating well, and, again, I’m so thankful for people in my life who are good at things I’m not.
