I am the kind of person who feels like a slack mom when I look over at my child’s baby book which is basically empty save the details of his birthdate. I feel similarly when I realize that all the photographic evidence of his life pretty much exists within my computer and my picasa website. I’ve got to get better about printing out the photos, filling out the baby book (even if my baby is 7!) and having more mementos of his birth and growing up period.
I always wanted to have some type of mother’s jewelery where I could have both of my sons nicely represented. I’ve struggled to find something simple and meaningful to me to represent both of my sons. I just learned about this website and I think I’ve found the place where I can get a nice, understated piece of mother’s jewelry.
