When you go into your child's room this month say, "Good morning, [child's name]! I'm so glad God's plan was to give you to me. I love hanging out with you!" Give child a big hug.
As you drive, name things you see that are firm/hard and bendable/soft. Road signs, trucks, and buildings are firm/hard. Leaves, grass, and flags are bendable/soft. Talk about how God's plans are good and firm and only He can change them.
Cuddle up with your child this month and pray, "Dear God, thank You that Your plan was for me to be [child's name]'s [mom/dad]. I love [him/her] so much! Help us to trust Your plan even when it's hard. We know Your plan is always best. We love You, God. In Jesus' name, amen."
Add a cup that’s easy to scoop with, a large plastic container, and some bubble bath to bath time this month. Encourage your child to scoop the water and bubbles and fill the container. Talk about how Joseph helped Pharaoh fill the barns with food so they would have enough to eat when the food stopped growing.
