Celebrate the Small Stuff
After the team from Hallmark shared their 'Special Occasion' stories, it was our turn to share. We had nifty t-shirts to personalize as a reminder of our occasion:
I was the last to share and after hearing everyone else's story I was amazed at how much we really can appreciate the little moments in life...
if we only take the time to do so.
What me worry?
I shared that every since my twins were young I had to give up a lot of control when it comes to what they wore. At most I was able to suggest clothing that was appropriate for the weather that day, but even then I would lose the battle. And with so many battles, this was not one I was always willing to fight.
Once when the girls were 3, Ellie came downstairs wearing something that was not great for whatever the occasion was. I 'suggested' she find something warmer, colder, fancier, etc...I can't remember now.
"Mommy, I worry about what I wear and you worry about what you wear."
How can you argue with that?
Hallmark has more than cards to help you celebrate everyday moments
After sharing our everyday, yet very memorable moments, I was able to look at a number of new Hallmark products that can help me make more memories from these little special occasions. They have awesome cards, and I was able to meet some of the writers and creative team, but they have so much more.
Record your voice reading the book so that when you can't be there, you can still read to them before bedtime!
Interactive books like the one pictured above are something new to Hallmark. One of the writers shared a book she wrote that interacts with a tree ornament. These are not only festive, they make great gifts for the kid who has just about everything!
What special everyday moment would you have shared?
