My lovely little boy gave me a beautiful heart this morning for Valentine’s Day. I love it! He has been hinting for days that he had made something, at school, for somebody very special. He also made his sister a special present too.
I am very happy that I have such a thoughtful, caring son. I shall keep this forever, in a memory box (ok, one of many memory boxes!) after I’ve hung it up on the wall for a while.
I spend quite a lot of time collecting things for the memory boxes and scrap books. I collect the children’s photos, drawings, paintings, clay work, writing, newspaper clippings as well as many, many more things! I do not want to forget a moment, although I know I will forget bits. My memory is not the best but putting these special items and reminders of moments throughout their childhoods helps me to look back and remember those important times.
Did you receive any cards or gifts from your little ones this Valentine’s? Do you keep scrap books and memory boxes? Are there any other ways that you record special memories? I would love to hear from you!
