My kids know me as “Mom” but I also want them to know I’m Jennifer, my own person, and I’ve been living my own life and learning from my experiences. I’m hoping this little journey of writing exercises will be something I can share with them someday, to help them get to know another side of me. So remember that fun post I wrote a few months back? A pretty cool project I started for my offspring documenting 30 things my kids should know about me? Well, pregnancy got the best of me and I didn’t quite get around to finishing it. But, May is the month of mother’s day, and I’m now a mom of two… KidS versus just one KID, so this has more meaning for me now. Not only that, but I was just approached by an awesome woman named Erica who helped bring these babies to the next level with her graphic design skills. Now I’ll be working on an 8×8 printable book the same time I’m blogging these… So two birds with one stone! And a great Mother’s Day gift for myself when it’s all done! Well, eventually for my kids but I’ll hang on to it til they can appreciate it.

30 Things My Kids Should Know: A Journal Prompt for Parents30 things my kids should know about me - WOW, thinking about how this could have helped me if my own mother had done something like this. This will take some time, but it's perfect to kick off for/by Mother's Day.

Let’s do this!

I already shared 20 Random Facts About Myself but I’m sharing it again using the graphics for my book, and you can see how I used mine. Erica did her page much differently so there unlimited ways to go!

Here’s a preview of the graphics for week 1.

You can download them for free here. Again, a big thanks to Erica for designing them!
