Since we celebrated The Little Ladybird’s 2nd birthday last month, I’ve been consumed with this weird “The-Days-Are-Long-But-The-Years-Are-Short/ My-Babies-Are-Growing-Too-Fast/ You-Need-To-Capture-ALLA-The-Memories!” feeling.
Let’s refer to it as a wistful hysteria.
I want to remember how she…
… has started referring to me as “Mumma Bear” and her father as “Daddy-O.” It smashes our hearts into smithereens…
… lovingly drags around a threadbare Teddy, whose nose has disintegrated and been drawn back on with a black Sharpie…
… loves collecting random items, like beads, and stores them in equally random places. Like the oven…
In an effort to curb this wistful hysteria, I designed this printable to be filled in on each birthday.
Then the rebel in me exclaimed, “WHO NEEDS LINES?!” So here is an unlined version.
I’m crazy like that.
And because I am the ultimate procrastinator and lover of many fonts, I then designed this one.
If you want to climb aboard the Train of Wistful Hysteria, click on the design you like.
Then just do the old File>Print, and it’s yours!
I’m going to print off a bundle and stash them in a safe place. Then each birthday, fill one in per kiddo, and voila! A snapshot in time.
Fantastic!! I have been meaning to do this with my two now you have given me a push.
Doooooooo itttttt!! xx
I love a printable! Such a gorgeous idea Shannon. As the years wizz by it’s easy to forget these little things. And I love how you’ve created 3 versions 🙂
It’s those little things that I want to remember! Hope your Tornadoes are well xx
What a cute idea!
Thanks chick! I just want time to slow down so I can savour ALL the moments!
This is a great idea. I love writing a post to my children every 6 months, in which I record the awesome things I want to remember from those times.
It’s amazing how quickly we forget all the little things, hey? And then months down the track you think, “When did you stop saying or doing that?!”
