Our little bambinos are the biggest investments we will ever make; not only financially but time wise, emotionally and physically.

I always see these savings bonds that you can start adding to now so that your little one will have financial security when they are older and of course me and Pete will be doing this, but I want to look at other things that I can do now to contribute to my children’s future.

There are the obvious, teaching your baby right and wrong, educating them on manners, broadening their horizons etc etc but I came across this wonderful idea through social media and I just wanted to share it!

How wonderful would that be? I guess it’s similar to what I’m doing now, blogging about my pregnancy for Rabbit to see when he’s older; but this idea would be solely for him.

I could start now on Rhys’ and add in all of the lovely pictures and memories we have plus funny stories and experiences. It’s kind of like a virtual memory jar!

It would be lovely to see the laughter, the cringing and the recognition across Rhys and Rabbits faces when they read all about their lives from tiny tot to teenager, and quite emotional too I’m sure!

What ways are you investing in your child’s future?

Thanks for reading xxx

    You know I wish I had thought of these things sooner. My boy is 18 at the end of this year and I hadn’t even thought of things to give him, we have moved so many times. My second son we did everything digital and technology went wrong and I lost so much from his first years, so I recommend printing stuff out. Many congratulations and the best of luck.

      Thats such a shame things got lost but memories are always there 🙂 Why not make a scrap book or something? I love looking back at my old scrap books of pictures and tickets etc xxx

        You know that is something I keep meaning to do and have a carrier bag with loads of tickets in – on my things to do list – it’s never ending.

    I would have liked to have been starting to have my family in this day and age of such great technology to be able to have had the digital photos in abundance, the emails to send them etc. (my neice is doing that with her one year old) but mine are grown now.
    It is also so much easier and quicker to do things than when our kids were young so make the most of it and enjoy the ideas you can come up with. Dropping in from Motivational Monday

      There are so many possibilities now but I do still love the traditional scrap books and photo albums. I definitely won’t be giving in to too much of the whole modern parenting stuff like iPads and phones!

      Thanks for the comment 🙂

      haha I love a to do list! Set aside an hour each week and break it down into tasks. Maybe start with filtering the tickets into categories or something?

      Thanks 🙂 I’m yet to make one for Rhys, I need to do it soon so I can have it up to date before Rabbit arrives!
