For My Children Book Review & Giveaway

I love hearing about my kids' days at night.  And, I love sharing stories with my children.  We can recall the day-to-day happenings, while in the moment.  But we often forgot the "little things" long-term.  What if you had an easy way to record it all?

“For My Children: A Mother’s Journal of Memories, Wishes and Wisdom” (available on Amazon HERE)  is a beautifully designed and illustrated book with creative prompts that will spark your recollections of fun family vacations, favorite games, and special holiday traditions.

This collection of fill-in-the-blank lists, questions and queries is the easiest way for any mother to record on paper answers to the questions her children never thought to ask but will love to discover.

This book retails for $14.95 and is a great journal to share with your children, whether they are toddlers, preteens or going off to college.  The journal would be a great way for you to log your memories throughout the year and present to your child at their high school or college graduation.

As the kids and I are developing our new traditions as a family of three, I want them to recall the fun things we do annually together. 

The book not only touches on the events, the milestones and the traditions.  It also prompts you to touch on your feelings on motherhood and raising your children.  This book will help me write out the good things I did, during our time of transition; the good, the bad, the struggles, the triumphs, the things I am proud of, the things I should have done differently.  I'm hoping that in a decade or two, that they will see that I am a human being and that I thought about them with ever decision I made along the way.
