B.D. (Before Dex) I regularly wrote or sketched in a journal. A.D. (After Dex) I was able to make some notes but as life gets busier I’m having a hard time keeping up. I recently purchased this 5 year diary and it has a spot for a short daily note. I keep it on my bedside table and jot down or sketch something that happened that day. Simple things like ‘growing pains’ or ‘pizza in park’ or ‘what we did for mother’s day’… random events that as a whole will tell a story of our life between the ages of seven and twelve. The small spots are easy to fill with one sentence, one thought, one wish; it’s a love story from me to him that we can look back on at any time.

    I love this! It would be so fun to remember what you did together on this day last year (or 3 or 4 or 5 years ago)!

    My sister gave me a journal like this when my son was born (he’s 3.5 now) and I’m still using it. The cool thing about these types of journals is that when you start to overlap the years to can read up to see what you did that day a year ago, two years ago etc. It’s fun to see and also jogs my memory if I forget. :). I do wish there was more space though – I tend to over write and have little pieces of paper sticking out of the book now for extra space!
