Parenting Prompt

The other night, whilst browsing through the huge collection of random images we seem to have somehow amassed on this computer, I had a new idea.  An awful lot of them are those fun pictures people e-mail, tweet or Facebook you, ones you look at, nod, 'like', save cos they're cute or interesting, then forget all about.

What could I do with them, I wondered.  How could I use them to remind myself to strive every day to be a better parent, or even, perhaps, to inspire others?  And this is what I came up with, a sort of parenting inspiration for the week.  My intention is that it should be a little weekly reminder on a Monday morning (oops, failed already!) to cherish our children, to enjoy every moment, from teeny newborn babyhood on.

There may occasionally be a few words from me, but most of the time they'll speak for themselves, I hope.  I'll also gather them all together on a new Parenting Prompt page, so we [I] can glance back at them when I'm maybe not being the parent I want to be.  Let me know what you think, and be sure to send me any images you'd like included.

So, this is week one.

And don't forget to enter our competitions!
