At the beginning of the school year in September I started a little book for Boo that we keep in the car and every day on the drive home she has to tell me the most interesting thing that happened that day. The second I pull into the driveway I write it down. It’s been an easy thing to keep up because I keep it in the car and she knows she has to tell me about her day on the way home:
Just wondering if anyone is keeping it up?
I started one of my own recently….it’s a 5-year-journal. (Despite my OCD on these things it starts on January 10th instead of the 1st….yes I’m making progress) I keep it on my bathroom counter. At the end of each day as I’m brushing my teeth and getting ready for bed I have to write down a quick sentence about the day. So next year, on the 13th of January, I’ll be writing a sentence on the same page. If I forget a day it’s easy to backfill since it’s only one sentence! You can find them at almost any bookstore……click here for all the ones they have on Amazon.
Don’t worry, this won’t replace The Lil Journal Project. I’ll start that up again soon! My sister has been hounding me about it too…..
I pulled out an old journal from 2000 and 2001 the other day. Crazy how many things you forget about even in a short amount of time. Boo caught me reading it and begged me to read it to her. It was too juicy to divulge what was in it to a 5-year-old…..so I kind of ad-libbed (sp?) a quick little story. Funny though that her Kindergarten Gossip is almost just as scandalous……she’ll be able to use it to write her memoirs one day. Stay tuned for “Memoirs of a Kindergartner” by Boo Hack coming out next year…..
