I'm keeping a pregnancy journal, besides my usual one (at least one, that is), and plan to show it to DC when he/she is older and will appreciate it, or when I'm asked, "Mommy, when did I...?" I've also written my autobiography, which isn't totally accurate, since my life isn't over yet LOL! What I mean is I keep working on it as I have events to add, but the early years and early adulthood are done. I think it's a great idea to keep a journal and/or write your autobio for your kids, and for yourself! It's amazing how much I've learned, or remembered, about myself and my childhood as I've written these things that seem/seemed so mundane at the time . . .
