Parenthood in Lists

This weekend we had an early morning shopping trip to Merry Hill Centre. I came away with lots of goodies for Jake and this little beauty...


I am all about keepsakes and memories. I want Jake to have plenty of things to look back over and know all about his life and our lives too. I hope that when he's old enough he will be interested, and maybe when he's our age he might share these things with his own children. 

What I love about this is the simplicity of it; the design is clutter free and completely manageable for busy parents.

The beginning of the books asks you who is writing it and whilst I'm the writer - Daddy is contributing too verbally. It can't all be about what mummy thinks - dads matter too. 

Something like this is unique to each child. My baby's favourite songs won't be the same list as your baby's - and that's why I like it because it is only about you and your family. 

It would make a lovely baby shower gift or a present for new parents - replacing the stereotype pink/blue baby book with rattles and bows. 

I think it's a winner. 

NB: You can pick one of these up for £10 in Waterstones.
