Kids grow up quick. It seems like every day holds a collection of moments, big and small, that you wish you could hold on to as they fly past.
This is why I love A Memory a Day for Moms. Each page is divided into 5 sections, one for each year, where moms can write down a memory based on a prompt listed at the top of the page. With four lines allocated for each year, it is simple enough to squeeze in five minutes to write down your memory and the idea of being able to compare each year as you go is already bringing on the nostalgia for this Mama.
The book itself is a solid hardcover- perfect for the heavy usage ahead of it. The cover itself, however, is a beautiful blue embellished with shiny gold leaves. I appreciate how design and durability are equally evident. For those of us who are a little scatterbrained, there is an attached bookmark allowing for quick navigation for the day's writing.
The only downfalls with this book are for those who prefer a lot of control over their writing. As there are only 4 lines per date, there isn't a lot of space to go into details or to write details for multiple children (my tiny cursive finally found a place to excel). Also, the daily prompts may not always be relevant for a mom, breaking the day's theme for future entries.
Cons aside, this is a great option for Mama's looking to preserve glimpses into the ever fleeting years of childhood.
4 stars out of 5.
