How do you record your stories of motherhood and the stories of your children so you don't forget?

I send myself a text message to my email when my son says or does something I want to remember. Since I always have my phone with me I can "write" it down while I still remember exactly what he said.

If you want to take scrapbooks and blogs one step further, check out The Momoir Project (www.themomoirproject.com). They offer writing classes for moms who want to record their memories -whether for themselves, their kids to read in the future or to improve their blogs or get their stories published.

I have a baby book for my daughter, I also write a blog about our adventures in homeschooling thus far. I figured it would be fun to see if from toddlerhood onward.

my son has a baby book I write in it every chance I get. Before he was born I wrote him a letter on my computer too it's about mistakes I can hopefully convince him not to make :)

I have a year diary with like a section for each day and I write things like "Logan took 2 steps today YAY" or "Logan started eating with a spoon and made a huge mess". I sadly also keep all the little cards from the hospital from immunisation apps and antenatal apps from when I was pregnant with him in my diary from the year before last year and also a baby book with cute photos and milestones.

I also have baby books for each of my girls. It has their milestones, first vacation, first haircut, birth and a place to put pictures and the bands from birth. It also has places to put locks of hair and their first tooth(lost) and other things.

I have a journal. I also have a yearly calendar I note things on as well. This is going on the 3rd year with the calendar and I pulled out the first one I did for the entire 1st year of our son's life and it was so neat to reflect upon. It was a great idea given to me from my grandma :)

Buy a journal and date it. Write down everything from that day.....
