remember how i was saying that i have a million scraps of paper where my mom wrote down tidbits she wanted to remember about me, or funny things i said? wouldn't these ideas be great to do that for your kids, too?:
brooke writes down her kid's antics on whatever paper is handy and then sticks them in an old spaghetti jar- how low maintenance yet so cool looking! literally no prep work, just instant "scrapbook". stick a full jar in your child's memory box, and done.

i bought a notebook like this that i keep all of my mother's little notes in. how fun to dress it up with other momentos and pretty scraps? i have also stuck favorite photos in the pockets. fast and meaningful.
ps- i'm starting the jar idea to-day.
