I will admit it- I’m a bit paranoid. Paranoid that I’ll not be the perfect mom… admission: I know I’m not the perfect mom… and that I am the perfect mom. Because ultimately, I know there is no such thing as the perfect this or that, but as long as I’m doing the best I can, and willing to learn and change, etc…. well, that sorta makes one a perfect ‘this or that’. Right? Right. Trust me. I have three kids. I know these things.
Ok, so moving right along… In my paranoia of trying to be the perfect mom, I’ve had thoughts memories that I wanted to make sure I preserve for each of my children. They are too young to understand a mother’s heart yet, and I’m no scrapbooker! So I decided that I would start a journal for each child! There was probably something on Pinterest that made me think of doing this, I don’t really remember. Anyway, I decided the front of my composition notebook was boring and decided to decorate it a bit…
Almost every time I write in one of them for the children, I get a little sentimental… but I think it will be a treasure when they are older. At least, I hope so! Anyway, just an idea I thought I’d share!
