Three years ago my husband (with the prompting of his very wise mother-in-law) started a fabulous tradition. It’s frugal and priceless – the best kind of traditions – and gives him some major husband points!
This is my Mother’s Day Journal.
Every year on Mother’s Day my husband sits down with our two kids and they create a new page for me in lieu of a Mother’s Day card. Being one and three years old, my first few pages are full of scribbles and a photo or two to commemorate another year of love and motherhood. In the future I suspect I’ll see first sentences with adorable sounded out words and then later on, hopefully some heartfelt and funny memories as my children reflect on our relationship.
I love that all my Mother’s Day “cards” are bound together. It provides a sweet place for me to flip back and see how we’ve grown as a family over the years. Best of all, my husband can put the money he would have spent on a card or two towards my gift, lol!
