Description

An award-winning childhood journal covering 18 years together, designed to help you create a unique keepsake your son will treasure forever. 

The beautifully color illustrated journal has been lovingly created featuring a baby bird that grows up each year until it’s ready to fly the nest. With spaces for photos and memorabilia, it provides prompts to help parents chronicle family experiences and unrepeatable moments, including the child’s growth, development and personality, precious family memories and the wonderful emotional journey. 

As a parent, there’s often little time to sit down and reflect, let alone write down key memories. With Our Story For My Son, start a new tradition and allow just an hour or two each year, perhaps on your son’s birthday, to reminisce about the year gone by. The guided prompts will help you to record what would otherwise so easily get forgotten. Once completed, the journal can be passed on to your son as a very precious keepsake.

• A section per year of your son’s life
• Spaces for precious photos
• Captures your child’s growth, development and personality, plus family memories 
• Prompts to reflect on how you feel about the year, to record family adventures, hopes and dreams as well as predictions
• Carefully worded prompts mean that Our Story For My Son is suitable for journaling the childhood of an adopted child as it’s not age-related

As well as for your own child, Our Story For My Son makes a lasting gift for any new baby celebration such as a baby shower, christening or naming ceremony.

Why we love it

We love that this journal follows on from Bump To Birthday, but it doesn’t have to. The paper is really high quality, and each page is beautifully illustrated, with a lovely section for each year to be completed. The prompts are well thought through and there’s space for photographs. A great way to celebrate the anniversary of your child’s arrival.
