Almost every night as she falls asleep, I ask her what kind of day she wants to have tomorrow. I believe it is an intention set and a foundation being established for the rest of her life…
Me – “What kind of day do you want to have tomorrow?”
Her – “Joy, magic, creativity, kindness, wonderful, fun.”
Me – “Nice. That sounds like a fantastic day. And I’m going to help you create that, okay?”
The part about helping her with her intention was something that just came to me in the moment. I like it. It establishes the parenting tone I want to have tomorrow.
We are a team, after all, with the same goal… a happy childhood, one day at a time.
