Parenting Bucket List

You hear it all the time, “they grow up so fast”, it’s a cliché.

Playing around on Pinterest last night, I saw where this woman had created a board of “stuff I should do with my kid before she’s old”.

It’s like a Bucket List of Parenting. Loved it. Things like take her to the Grand Canyon, build a Dollhouse, find the book that makes her love reading, be there when her heart gets broken, see them stand up for what is right.

Love this idea of not guessing through the process of parenting, but take is seriously, professionally.

It really has me thinking about making the most of the time I have. Funny though it’s not the big outrageous trip to Europe that’s on my list, but taking them to see my favorite spot overlooking Jenny Lake in Jackson Hole, ha ving a water balloon fight, making mud pies, most of all be there when they decide to follow Jesus.

Let’s create a Parenting Bucket List together. Maybe it’s stuff you want to do with your kids, or stuff you wish your parents would have done with you.
