For My Children - A Mothers Journal

I will be the first to admit that my mom drives me crazy from time to time...
She knows it.. and yes, I know that I drive her bonkers too...
But, I also know that I would not trade her for anything in the world and I am (still trying to deny it) more and more turning into her in some ways...

One way?
My mom always tells my brother and I that she wants a letter from us.
That is a gift that she wants... I hope in some ways that some of my blog posts are the letters she is looking for.
Recently, she decided that she was going to start a journal.

She reads me some of her posts... and I will admit that I have learned things I did not know before.
Now, I have something that I am giving her... for me ;)
I know that my mom will appreciate it for the sentiment behind it.. and I know I will love to look back at it down the road.

I will be giving her a copy of " For my children: A Mother's Journal of Memories, Wishes and Wisdom."
This is a really great gift idea... Perfect for moms/grandmothers/aunts/friends.  I think it would be a great gift to give an expectant mother as well!

For My Children is a hard back book that contains 160 pages.
Not to worry, it is not 160 pages of fill in the blanks.
Some pages have simple drawings that automatically bring a sense of peace over me.
Other pages have a simple question, with plenty of room to write.
One such question:   What can you remember as the highlights (and lowlights) from your pregnancy.
Now, that is a great question to learn the answer to, but it sure isn't one that I just randomly brought up while ordering lunch.
I love that some of the pages have lines for answers, while others are just blank.  Some pages are white while others are a cream color.
This book is one that I know I will treasure (once my mom completes it) and I know that it is a book that I want to get to fill out of my own experience of motherhood!

I think this is a great book, it doesn't matter if you have one child or 7.  If the youngest is a newborn or 60, this is a great family treasure and I hope that more parents get these to pass down to their children!
