Hands Free Moment: Journaling with my girls

The girls received journals for Christmas.  They've been drawing and writing and using up their stamp pads.  Then one night after reading a little in my book, I decided to take the author's lead, and I wrote to them.  I wrote words they could read.  I chose a stamp and stamped a picture next to the note I'd written.

Bright eyes and beaming smiles.

It was such a simple connection, and they were touched.  Their little hearts were happy.  They wrote me back, and I knew we had a tradition, a mother-daughter bonding outlet.  We pass their journals back and forth with notes and drawings.  Who would've thought something so simple could be such a blessing to all of us!?
