Today I get to talk to you about my most prized possession.
It came into my life from an incredible gift-giver and good friend Lindsey (who is pretty amazing at everything she does, in case you are wondering! I hope she can join us here on Mommy Convos for “reader posts” if nothing else!).
When Lindsey gave me this book I can’t say that I was overjoyed about it- I figured it was a journal that I could use to write down things my kids say… if I felt like it. And I just might not feel like it! But as my oldest was approaching her third birthday, she started saying some pretty cute things, and I know most of them would be long gone from my memory if I hadn’t had an easy spot to record them!
A few features about this book that I love, specifically:
- The book has you list the date, where you were, and the child’s age. This really helps the memories come to life when I go back and read them. I can remember exactly how she looked when she said that adorably cute quote- and without me recording those details, (especially where we were) the memories would be more cloudy!
- This journal doesn’t look just like any old generic journal. So, when I see it in my kitchen, I’m prompted to think about if there’s been anything darling that I’ve missed writing down. That happens to me a lot, so I probably have 32.7% more quotes from my kids because of that. 😉 That means 32.7% more fun memories!
- Lastly: It’s well-made and colorful! Quality paper and binding, it’s easy to write in, and the colorful quote bubbles make it a little extra fun.
Now that I know and appreciate those details in the journal- they could easily be recreated in any well-made journal. If you can totally drop $15 bucks on this book, I’d highly recommend it. Buy it here! But, if there just ‘aint the room in the budget for this item, just get yourself a quality journal and try to follow as many of those principles I mentioned above and you should be good!
K, this week’s #fridayfavorites is short and sweet with just one item, but I want to take a second to tell you guys about our plan to incorporate more kids quotes (or as we call them here: convos!) in our lives:
