Journal Writing: A Way to Record Childhood Memories

Journal Writing: A Way to Record Childhood Memories
Journal writing is a flexible way to record childhood memories

Journal writing provides more flexibility in describing wonderful childhood memories than traditional baby books. 

Parents have a desire to remember those special moments during pregnancy and early childhood. Baby books are wonderful tools to record dates when the child first walked or to store pictures of a first birthday. However, there is not enough space for some parents to adequately convey their feelings about certain events. For example, a pregnant mother may wish to describe her pregnancy and write messages to her unborn child describing the events that are occurring.

Sample Journal Entry

One mother began her baby journal in the following way, “Dear baby, I found out that I was pregnant with you on March 2, 1995. That was two days ago. I was in Orlando at a learning disabilities conference. I found out about 5:30 a.m. in the morning. I was so thankful. I bowed on my knees in that hotel bathroom and lifted up a prayer of thanks to God. I am so thankful that God blessed me with you.”

Each journal entry can be a few sentences, a few paragraphs, or a few pages. Journal writing gives parents the flexibility they need to record the memories that matter most. For parents who enjoy writing, they can write about events daily or weekly. Other parents may wish to journal only the highlights of the pregnancy and early childhood.
