I am starting a series called “Simon says” highlighting things that Simon and I love or want to try for baby and mom. This is the first of several already planned posts with giveaways and discount codes. I hope that you’ll join and share your favorite items too – I have some exciting things to share!
Before I had a baby I was a big fan of scrapbooking and photography. I am still a fan of both, but my time for scrapbooking has been replaced by other less fun life things – like sleeping and laundry (blah). I have put my Project Life albums on hold (to be picked up again someday I hope!), but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to document and remember milestones – I absolutely do.
When I was pregnant I was looking for an easy way to document once Simon was born and I knew that I needed something extremely quick and mindless or I wouldn’t do it. If I had to pause for more than 2 minutes to “document”, I wasn’t going to be able to stick to it.
I’m glad that I listened to myself this time — I tend to take on really big craft projects with the intent of being really great and starting a new hobby in a weekend…like that time that I decided to become a quilter overnight even though I can barely sew in a straight line… eh hem.
Anyway, in my opinion, this One Line A Day book is PERFECT to do exactly what I need – quickly capture daily notes about milestones, firsts, and general life with a new baby stuff.
Thankfully I got one for a shower gift and have been using it since the morning Simon was born. I keep it on my nightstand with a pen and every night I write in it before I go to bed.
The One Line a Day book is great for capturing the first 5 years of baby milestones, but really, it’s a fairly generic book that can be used to capture 5 years of anything that interests you.
