A Part of Me - Cherished Moments Monday

"There is something so special when our children start to reveal a huge part of ourselves." ~Mama Hen

It was a special weekend when my daughter showed a huge interest to go kayaking for the first time. It is something I have always loved to do and to have my daughter in my arms paddling with me was like a dream. It was really low tide and the water was up to Little Chick's waist, so I thought it would be perfect to take her out. Having my cousin with us on the beach taking pictures was wonderful. She captured a cherished moment I will never forget. I have not been kayaking since before Little Chick was born, and while Little Chick was playing with my cousin I thought it would be perfect to head on out for a bit. Little Chick was so excited to see me and yelled out "I want to go too!" It was music to my ears. My daughter is a little version of me and it is so fun to see. I love my baby and passing on a part of me is my greatest gift.

  4. I love to go kayaking! How cool that this is something (from now on) that both of you can enjoy together. My little boy loves to walk in the woods, which makes me believe that he will share my joy of hiking some day. I'm so glad you were able to capture this memory. It sounds like you may have more than a few kayaking trips to look foward to...

  7. I went kayaking once in Hawaii with my oldest when she was 3 and I almost turned the kayak over! I see myself in both my girls, but especially my little one. She's a rebellious one with a mind of her own - that was me at her age, too....
