Last week I showed my documentarian tendencies.
When Tessa was born, my friend Juli (scrapbooker extraordinaire) gave me a beautiful handmade calendar that she designed especially for my daughter.
So it seemed natural that I would add my kids’ journal entries to my nightly routine. Call it a.nal-retentive, obsessive or rigid (as my husband jokingly has), but I am happy to capture each day of their lives until they are able to do so themselves. As Mel suggested last week, I plan to turn over documenting duties to them on their 12th birthdays.
Tessa has 9 calendars so far (Juli’s creations are the two in the upper left):
Reed has 7 (and yes, the second child’s is sloppier; what’s it to ya?):
Thanks to my mom for filling in on the overnights she’s had them. And yes, the kids LOVE scanning a month of their lives and remembering an earlier time.
See what the cool kids are showing and telling over at Mel‘s.
