Although we spend every day with our children, one-on-one personal moments are hard to come by given our busy schedules. Amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s as important to dedicate quality time with each of our children individually as it is to have date nights with our spouses. Not only does it make your child feel special, it gives the two of you a chance to get to know each other in a different light.

The first time I met Jennifer we were sitting beside each other in an introductory theater class in college. On top of our overachieving, Type A personalities and a similar sense of humor, we ended up being in the small handful of people in that class who actually read the assigned plays and who shared opinions in class. We quickly became friends. Over our four years of college together, we shared dozens of classes. We shared a love of literature and writing and didn’t understand anyone who didn’t love a good Jane Austen novel. We still don’t!
It’s pretty cliche, but as every mother knows, our children grow up way too fast! Before we know it, they have surpassed crawling to running, cooing to non-stop talking (no, really…what’s silence?), preschool to elementary, and suddenly it’s off to college. Eighteen years goes by in a flash. Thanks to the new digital age, we are able to capture every minute of it on a device that fits into our back pocket (and oh, we do!), but while pictures and videos are precious time pieces to have, they can’t always capture the heart, the endearing and overwhelming amount of love from the mother behind the camera. Pen and paper journal writing offers an in-depth look into one’s soul, a true connection to another being. While it may not be as up-to-date and modern as Instagram, it is time capsule, pass-me down through the generations, and cherish me forever kind of material, and in our book, that’s something worth starting!
