Obviously I keep record of most of my children's life right here on this blog. But there is some little moments that I tend to forget about before I get a chance to write a blog post about them, so I started jotting them down in a journal I made them. I write about the silly things they do, the mischief they get into, the things they say, and the places we went.
I started out with a journal like this one. Look familiar? You probably used these back in your school days.
I just traced the cover on some scrapbook paper, mod podged it on and added some embellishments.
I started documenting in a journal in January of this year. I keep their journals in the living room so that I can easily jot stuff down as it happens.
I also made one for my pregnancy with the boys. Wondering how I remember what went on two years ago?
Well I jotted things like their weights and stuff that went on at my doctor appointments in a Word document and Facebook's new timeline design makes it easy to go back two years and see what I wrote.
If you haven't already check out my post from last week on how I organized my children's memorabilia.
