Embracing The Preschool Years

Yesterday as my two-year old, soaking wet and clad in a soggy swim diaper, climbed into my fully-dressed lap, I reflected on the brevity of this season. While spending a few moments in damp shorts may seem like an inconvenience, it is a fleeting one. Judah will not always want to climb into my lap and park it.

Our preschoolers will only be small for a short time. I love the quote by Jim Elliot that I came across recently, “Wherever you are, be all there.” What a lesson for parents! Relish this season of life before it flees! Spend some time today just enjoying the wonder of being two or three or four.

For the rest of my article and some inspiration for fun activities to do with your preschoolers, visit this month’s Montgomery Parents magazine [4].
