In the past, I've put together binders of the boys artwork & mementos throughout the year. Since 2009, the only thing I managed to get done are the Valentines they receive from classmates and friends. The pages look fantastic! I would scan them for you but the dopey machine always put a line in whatever I scan.
I did do something more than just heart attack the boys walls.
I actually implemented 2 ideas from Pinterest:
|30 Days of Family Dinner Questions for 5 months|
|Traveling Notebooks - |
I haven't finished decorating the books, but I gave it to Kai this afternoon when he wanted to talk with me but I was too busy
After our "chatter time" together, I sat down and read his entry. It was really great to have that extra insight into his day and feel a little closer to him, his bright and energetic spirit. As I wrote back, I was able to say things that I forget to say when we are together. You know, all the good stuff that he does or that I feel about him. I get all caught up in the the schedule or getting things done that I don't always take the time to stop and focus, on these beautiful, special, and wonderful boys that I have been given, or to enjoy the blessing of being their mom.
I hope that they will feel like they are getting to know me better as we write back and forth, and that I will be able to make the transition from writing to saying my feelings.
I finished off my note to Kai with this question: If you could have picked your own name, what would it be?
