Garibay Soup: Friday Letters

Friday Letters


For Works For Me Wednesday I thought I'd share something special that I do for my kids with other moms. There's so many memories with kids and not enough space in the baby books to put them. I want my kids to be able to go back and read about milestones they had, funny things they said, and even the bad stuff. I want them to be able to know how much they truly were loved so a few weeks ago I went and bought 2 journals. One for Jayden, one for Ella. I set a reoccurring reminder in my phone calendar for every Friday @ 10:00pm and every Friday I write a letter to each child in their journal. Some letters are a short I love you, and others are detailed. I only wish I thought of this when Jayden was a baby, but better late than never. In the first letter I promised that they would have a letter every Friday. When they're 18 I'll wrap the finished journals up and give them as a birthday present. It will be a lot of reading for them, but what a special gift that will be for them.

That is a wonderful idea; you're creating such a special and thoughtful keepsake.

I love this idea. I write my son a letter on each birthday, and plan to give it to him later. But I might start doing this as well. It is quite a special gift. :)
