SandraL Posted August 25, 2008 Share Posted August 25, 2008 Good morning all. I wanted to share the significant sense of accomplishment from having updated my kids "memory boxes" this weekend. I have kept lots of baby and growing up memorabilia for them over the years..baby photo albums, newspaper from date of birth, baby cards, baptism and first communion memories, other photos, ribbons and badges while growing up etc. etc. I am sure many of you other parents out there have done the same. But all this was in a few various places etc. and in recently redoing their entire rooms I found many more items for those boxes. So I gathered all these items together, and bought 2 huge storage boxes and organized all their memory items and packed them up. With room to conveniently add many more items. I am so pleased to have finished this. I know now that they can go through those boxes one, ten, twenty and fifty years from now and know that they were loved and cared for deeply when they were young. My son's items were all laid out when I was doing this and he poured through the items for hours. I have labeled many things where memories may fade over the years. Both of my kids never tire of hearing about their birth and what they were like as babies. While I was maintaining memory items for many years, updating them now with my health was very important to me. If anyone else out there is able to share anything special they have done for their kids, now or before their diagnosis, I would love to hear it.
