Journal Prompt: What’s your favorite and least favorite thing about parenthood?
My favorite part of being a mom is spending time with my kids. I love it when I can see the qualities that we share and when I see them accomplish things that I never have. My least favorite part of being a mom is discipline. I’m horrible at it and yet I know that it is so important to have boundaries and to guide my children through their lives.
Each Tuesday, I am going to be offering prompts or ideas. If you don’t write in your journal regularly – I am going to encourage you to write just ONCE A WEEK and answer the question/idea that I give on Tuesdays. These ideas hopefully will spark a memory and you will be able to capture that in what you write/record so that it can be left for your children/grandchildren/family/friends. Give as much detail as you can when answering.
Will you do this for me? Will you do this for your families? You can write it down in a journal, you can type it up on a computer or journaling software, you can take a recorder and talk, you can videotape your answers, you can even scrap a page with the journaling. It doesn’t matter how you do this – it’s just important that you do it. The memories, the dates, the information is the only real thing we can leave to our families when we are gone.
