The Things They Say Journal – Mom Activity

the things they say journalthe things they say journal
A long time ago someone advised me to write down the funny little things that my kids say because it would be fun to look back on. I’m SO glad I took that advice and started a “Things They Say” Journal. I keep this notebook in my kitchen drawer and informally jot things down that are said, who said it, and the age. So funny to look back and reread some of these things and I can’t believe how quickly I’ve forgotten.

    I love to re-read things my kids have said and done from their journals. They grow and change so quickly!

    i was looking at the amazing mess and found my way over here. when i saw this had to say something. this is an amazing idea. sometimes i wish i could walk around recording everything just to catch the funny little things. i wish i’d seen it sooner. i’m going to start tomorrow.
