Mama and Me Journal~ So doing this as soon as he gets a little better grip on reading... Write a note to your child in the notebook, and place it on their bed. Can be serious, silly, funny, or anything really, just keeps the communication open. Then the child writes back, and places the notebook on mom's bed. I love this idea!

A (three-year) Q journal for your kid. I love the idea of sitting down to "interview" your kiddo every day. It's important to give them moments when they feel like the most important person in the room! Also, what a great way to remember the weird shit they say.

Write notes back & forth with your child. Leave it on their bed, when they have a chance, they write back and leave it on your bed. How neat would it be to have those notes to look back on?
