One Line A Day...

I used to be a scrap-booker. I even own a Cricut machine. I LOVE creating pages filled with fun memories. And I love using my creativity to decorate the pages. The big problem is that it takes a whole lot of time. Time that I don't have. I haven't started a scrapbook for my little man even though I have enough photos to document his entire life! One day I will get around to it.

In the meantime, I found one of my favorite books EVER. It is called "One Line A Day." This perfect little book is kind of like journaling your life, Twitter style. You jot down the most memorable part of your day. In my case, I write down a little line for Harper letting him know what he did/learned/loved that day. There is no way I can write a full page every night but I think I can manage to jot down one quick line before I fall asleep every night.
In this book, there is a page for each day of the year. Each day has spots for five entries. So at a quick glance, I can tell Harper exactly what he did over the past five years. Maybe one day I when Harper is off in college (insert alligator tears here) I can send him funny texts reminding him what he did that exact day when he was 3 years old. Yes, I will be "that mom."

So far I am about a week into it and I haven't missed a day. Hopefully I can keep it up. I think it will be a really cool gift to give my baby one day. Do any other moms keep a journal for their children? Does anyone have this particular one? How do you like it? 


  1. I saw one of these recently (maybe at Mast General in dt Greenville?) and almost bought it! I really should get on that because it's such a great idea.

  2. I love this! I think I'm going to have to invest in this for Andrew!

  3. Jaime, I actually just bought the same book for Clay for our anniversary. I thought it would be great for us to share filling out with little Baby B coming in the fall! :)

  4. I love that book! I bought it at Swoozies in February for a baby shower gift! It was so cute I was tempted to keep it for myself to use for Bennett- hehehe:o) I think I'm going to buy one and start it on his First Birthday- I'm one who has to have a very specific start date! (It can be very paralyzing sometimes) :o) I'm glad I'm not the only one who's obsessed with it!
