More than words

I have heard of several people keeping journals for their children, and I thought this was a wonderful idea. How special to be able to look back 20 years from now and have my children read what they were doing and how I was thinking as a mom. I think memories are one of the most precious gifts you can give your children. So, I decided to be a copy cat and start a journal for Dixie. I will start the new baby's once they make their debut in December. I am just making little notes here and there of special, funny, and I'm sure terrible moments.

I found this journal at a gift shop and thought it was too quaint to pass up. I could have made one myself for much cheaper, but I know I never will. I find myself smiling and wanting to cry at the same time, every time my pen touches the pages to write down a memory that she will read so may years from now. I hope she enjoys reading it as much as I do writing it.
