Childhood Milestones

The first haircut, the first lost tooth, the first day of school. Childhood is full of firsts—milestone moments when parents pause and realize how quickly time passes and how grateful we are to arrive at each small landmark. These prayers and blessings sanctify such moments, bringing holiness to the everyday business of raising children.
