I know that we haven’t even had Christmas yet but my thoughts are already turning to the New Year. I don’t go for New Year’s Resolutions at all but one thing I do want to try next year is a little bit of journalling and making more notes about my children. It’s a well known fact that children grow up far too quickly. Today I wanted to share with you something that could help you note the milestones, The Not-So-New Mum’s Notebook.
The Not-So-New Mum’s Notebook
The Not-So-New Mum’s Notebook is every mum’s essential companion and journal beyond the first year – whether you have a toddler or pre-schooler in tow. It follows the success of The New Mum’s Notebook which is everything you need for your child”s first year. Reassuring, joyful and down-to-earth, it will inspire and encourage you – and make you see that you’re a great Mum, just as you are.
The Not-So-New Mum’s Notebook will take you beyond the first year of life with your child up until the moment they’re ready to start school, giving you a place to celebrate all of your victories, no matter how small. It will prompt you to think about yourself whilst caring for others and help you to remember, in years to come, how you felt and just how brilliant your toddler or preschooler was.
With pages and pages of reassurance, self-care and space to write down all your thoughts and memories, The Not-So-New Mum’s Notebook will make you feel good about yourself – and about how you’re already raising your child.
It would make a perfect for gift for yourself or a friend with a pre-school child aged 1-5 years old. You can start on page 1 any day and any year, whatever their age. It’s beautifully designed pages offer reassurance, self-care advice, journal space, affirmations and simple recipes, and includes milestone charts for mum and child.
The The Not-So-New Mum’s Notebook by Amy Ransom costs around £16.99 and is available from Waterstones, Amazon and all good bookshops.
