Yay! I finally got started on my Mommy Book. This is for storing all the awesome ideas I find on Pinterest and blogs. So far I have the following categories:
Babies and Toddlers
At home with the kids? Instantly access any of these printable activity bundles to keep them learning!
Rainy Day Activities
Fun Snacks & Kid friendly recipes
Discipline and Parenting tips
Baby Food recipes
Charts and Printables
**UPDATE: I now use the mommy book to store all the fun IDEAS for motherhood, and I use my filing cabinet for fun RESOURCES for motherhood. So, things that I want to REFERENCE (activity ideas, recipes, tips, traditions, etc) go in the book, and things I want to USE (printables, chore charts, games, etc) go in the filing cabinet. This has been the easiest way for me to keep track of all the fun ideas I find on Pinterest that I don’t want to forget about. I’ve found that “pinning” things to boards is not as productive for me because I never do anything with it. Now, if it’s something I know I will use…I try to print it or save it to my computer right as I find it.
Any other categories that would be fun to add? What are your favorite “mommy blogs” for getting your inspiration? My goal is to have this book done before child #2 so that hopefully I have more time on my hands to just play with my kids and enjoy the journey of motherhood. What are your favorite memories with your children?
