5 Keepsake Journals for You and Your Children

July 2, 2013

mom-five-second-journalAre you itching to write? I love journals with prompts to encourage people to write. I especially love journals that are meant to be shared with your loved ones in the years to come.

Mom journals are fantastic for telling past and present stories to your children when they are at an age to really understand a lot more about life. Can you imagine giving your child a journal you have kept for years and years? How would that make you feel? Write about it!

Here are four I have kept my eye on and one awesome journal for your kids! Take a look!





1) Mom’s Five-Second Memory Journal 2) For My Children: A Mother’s Journal of Memories, Wishes and Wisdom 3) My Prudent Advice: Lessons for My Daughter 4) My Quotable Kid: A Parents’ Journal of Unforgetable Quotes 5) Q & A A Day for Kids: A Three-Year Journal

Do you keep some type of a journal now? Would you like your children to read it someday?

    I’ve been meaning to start her 1st year book or a scrapbook and nada! She’s almost 3.5 yrs! She says so many darn funny sayings I should start right them down to reflect back with her later. “Mama why are you moody today?” “Mama are you cranky?” “Mama I don’t line it when you angry with me. I a good girl.” “What’s up homie?!” There are so many I’m forgetting. :(. I must make a bigger effort. Will most def look into one of these books and start writing. Thanks for reminder. Suerte!

    I’ve been keeping a journal since I was 9 and still love writing in them. Sometimes it’s more the act of writing it down, applying sequence and storytelling to my jumbled thoughts that is so therapeutic πŸ™‚

    As far as my kids reading them, no I wouldn’t want them to, nor anyone else. In fact I told my husband to bury me with my journals lol.

      Nina that is impressive!! It was so hard to make me write! LOL Everyone is different, I understand you not wanting to share your personal thoughts. Your blog alone will be such a great piece of advice for your boys when they become dads! xoxo

    Lovely blog. I have been making my 4 year old journal over the past year, I also make her draw what she is feeling and making her happy. Very rewarding!

      I just saw your post! That is awesome! We should encourage our kids to write as much as we encourage them to read. Thanks for stopping by! xoxo
