I write in a special journal for my babies at least once a month, starting on the day I find out I’m pregnant. I thought it’d be fun to start sharing some of my favorite writing prompts here, just in case you are interested in putting together a baby journal of your own, or are interested in new material for one you already write.
If you’re interested in doing a little writing for your own children, grab a journal or notebook (I have a nice $10-ish journal for each of my own children, but I always wish I had just opted for simple composition books so I could easily start in on another when these are full and feel like they look silly and unmatching), make yourself a mug of tea or hot chocolate, and curl up at the arm of your couch to sip and reflect.
What has been the hardest (surface-level) part of parenting for you to date? Teething? Weaning? Potty training? Dropping them off for that first day of kindergarten? Handing over the keys for the first time?
What has been the best (surface-level) part so far? The first smile? Learning to walk? Going for hikes/baking cookies/ reading books together? Watching them play a sport, taking them to Disneyland, standing just outside the bedroom door and listening to elaborate playtime stories?
