Now let's get this week's hop started!


For me: Life is About... learning to share

It isn't always so easy to share with your little sister when you only two years old, but thankfully it is becoming more and more of a common thing in our very own household.

It can be challenging to know how to respond to my older daughter when my younger daughter constantly wants to play with something she has. It's important that they both realize that sharing is good for them. It teaches them patience and kindness. I strive to set a good example for them when it comes to learning how to share. I am hoping they will find that sharing can actually be fun and leave them feeling happy by doing nice things to others. I generally never punish my older daughter when she refuses to share, so one way she can better understand how to share is by having things that only she is allowed to play with and her sister is not (because she is too young).... a necklace or a sticker for example. Both are potential choking hazards when in the hands of a ten month old. She is not only learning how to share, but she is learning that certain things are potentially dangerous for her little sister, and in part, "looks out" for her when she has something too small in her hand. She herself is like a little mother hen. And the next time my younger daughter wants something that my older daughter has, I just remind her to let her sister take a turn while she plays with a necklace. So far sharing has been fun. Let's hope it continues :)

What is life about for you?!! Please link up and share below. We'd love to hear about what's important in your life!


  1. I love this post! I have a 4 year old and a 12 month old and struggle with this all the time right now. What he wants to do she wants to knock over or ate or tear apart. I try to find things they can do together and am working on sharing with both of them. We have a rule that if you are playing in the living room you must be willing to let everyone play with you. If he wants to do something that sister can't join in on then he can play in his room which at this point is off limits to Sister.

  2. I really love this post because I am the one really like to play to kids. I want to invite Watch Glee Season 3 Episode 9 oNline
