Trying to capture your little ones childhood is overwhelming, with every detail seeming as important as the next. Then with the addition of baby brain and lack of sleep, it can be hard to figure out what to jot down on those looming blank pages. My little boy is now 7 months old and I am already looking back on what seems like a fleeting few months wishing I had written more... Which is exactly why I have fallen head over heels for Promptly Journals...
After the birth of her first daughter, Promptly Journals founder Jayne Swallow struggled to find a system to document her daughters life. With the mantra "Don't let the details be forgotten", Jayne went on to create the perfect journal to remember all the little things that make growing up so special. "I know the importance of journaling because I've already forgotten so much. I felt the guilt of not doing anything and knew I would regret it one day. And now with my second baby on the way, I knew I was running out of time to figure it out."
"I wanted a system that was doable - that I could start and finish completely. And not just with my first child, but for however many kids I have. A journal that was efficient but would record enough of the good details I never want to forget. I also wanted it ALL in one place." And so Promptly Journals was born.
With custom tailored prompts for every phase and year of your child’s life, Promptly Journals make recording quick, efficient and meaningful. Some of our favourites are “What is your toddler’s favorite thing to wear (and refuses to take off)? — Age 2 and "What is your teen’s favorite clothing brand?" — Age 14, two memories that are sure to set off fits of giggles in the years to come. We also love it how there is space to record all the less glamorous moments too, as sometimes those are the ones that make you smile the most.
Head over to the Promptly Journals website and get jotting before all those lovely memories fade. If you are anything like us you will already be struggling to remember what happened last Wednesday!
