Presence over Presents 💗

Dec 7, 2023 · mental health · mom resources · parenting resourcces · self compassion

If you’re anything like us, this time of year can feel especially draining emotionally and mentally, trying to be the “magic maker” and “do all the things” in such a short amount of time.  🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️

You may feel the pressure to buy the perfect present or fulfill all the things on your child’s wish list, or accomplish all the things on your holiday bucket list.

Please know that the most powerful gift you can give to your child is simply time spent together…they really just need you. Presence over presents every single time. 🫶🏼

Here’s your friendly reminder that you are doing a good job, even when you don’t feel like it, and to your kids, you are enough. 🥰

Time spent playing, reading, eating, laughing, or just laying around together is some of the most powerful and important intervention we can give them.  

Practice this affirmation when you need it during the hustle bustle of this season: 

✨“My kids don’t need perfect.  They just need me.”✨

You’re doing a great job!

Lots of love, 

Abbie & Emily 💖
