“Why to collect memories when you are happily spending time being a Parent?”
Ask me and I will tell you that preserving memories has hidden benefits. Good memories has the power to uplift you in times of despair and sadness. Time spent in collecting memories never goes waste.
Writing memories would help us to be grateful.
There are many small happy and proud moments in Parenting that you’ll want to remember forever. Not only the first step, first smile but the small fun moments whose memories fade away with time.
These small moments may seem not-so-special to us now but gives immense happiness when read or seen back. Documenting these moments help us cherish our Kid’s presence in our lives, a little more.
Even if you have lack of Time, you can keep these memories in so many ways.
