While an encore performance of “Blessings” and her fake yawns were M.I.A. at last night’s press conference after the Golden State Warriors’ 108-100 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals (June 4), Riley did not hesitate to do a little dance for daddy’s victory.
Mommy Ayesha recently penned a piece for TIME on parenting your kid when they go viral.
All the hoopla and excitement of Stephen playing for the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Playoffs has really put our life into perspective. If anything, the attention has brought us closer together and made us realize that through all of this, we need to remain balanced and relaxed, especially in our home with our daughter.
I feel that the biggest thing you can do, as a parent, is to engage. You can never be too busy for your child. There should always be time for a bedtime story, impromptu playtime, or a quick game of hide-and-seek—or “find me,” as Riley calls it. These moments with your child should never get pushed to the bottom of the list. In these moments we set the foundation for the kind of relationship we want to have with our children as they grow.
