Mother’s notes

Mors bog

Many mothers keep diaries about their babies. They write down when the first tooth came, when the kid made the first step and all the funny words that he spoke. I write such books for my older children even now. I make notes once a year – how it was and what happened during the year.

I developed a structure for my children’s diaries:

  1. Cover Page
  2. Appeal. Something like a personal note: “For you about you …”
  3. Pregnancy and how life was before. What I had thought, what kind of feelings I had.
  4. Name. Why we chose it. What is the meaning and origin.
  5. Family tree.
  6. Parents, grandparents and great-grandparents.
  7. Each month from 1 to 12 of the first year.
  8. Each year.

There are many ways to decorate the book. I used watercolor, black ink and stamps for the daughter’s diary, thin colored paper and coffee for son´s. I embroidered covers for books on the embroidery machine.

Children grow up very quickly. Let them know that they have always been most important for their parents.Mather's books
