Childhood keepsakes

Published: 21st January 2008 - Category: Children - Author: Lynne Bastow

When you feel dreadful and stressed remembering gems that your children said can make you laugh and feel great. It is a good idea to keep a memory book – very American and organised but so wonderful to look back on in decades to come.

Here are a few entries I have made for my 5 year old son this week:

On talking to his granddad on the phone:
“I am having shepherd’s pie for dinner. Do you know how you make shepherd’s pie? Well you take real shepherds, kill them, cook them and then sell them in a shop called Tescos”.

When I asked him to lift the loo seat when going to the toilet:
“Don’t worry mum, my willie can stretch over it!”

When one of my friend’s asked him how long he had had a hole in his school trousers:
“Fifty years!”

“Fifty years, you’re only 5!”

“Yes, but I have been 4 for a very long time!”

It can be very easy to slide into bitterness and despair when going through a divorce. Feelings of resentment and waste can overwhelm. It can also feel impossible to communicate with your children. Start a project together:

  1. 1000 piece jigsaw
  2. Patchwork quilt
  3. Research family history
  4. Create a photo album
  5. Start a football team
  6. Teach them to swim/ride a bike/ice skate/fish

If all else fails go to the movies! Most children love it including teenagers!
