Mommy Moments: This I Give To You...(Pamana)

When it comes to inheritance, there are a lot of material things that I can probably leave my kids. But more importantly for me, would be to leave them behind able to take care of themselves.

With this in mind, I equip them with some of the powerful "weapons" I know:

Education - to stand them in good stead with their future careers, whatever they may become. Here they are in their school uniforms.
Love of Music - They have both run amok with this idea. My eldest sings and my youngest dances. Here my eldest sang at a music cafe 4 years ago. And my youngest danced at their annual concert.
Independence - Never too early to learn that life is what you make of it. Here they are, my dishwashing team! (My niece is with them in the photo.)
Much love.........
Hoping that herewith whatever I can give them will serve both my girls well when they grow older.

Of course, when asked about this topic, my eldest says that aside from my good genes of beauty and brains, she would like to "inherit" my laptop and my clothes. My youngest says she would settle for my shoes.
