Yes, this scrapbooking idea is to scrapbook about your thoughts on children. Why children? Because I have 5 nieces and nephews and I’m staying with two of them. So my life revolves around kids day in and day out.
I thought many of you would too be busy with kids one way or another. If you don’t have any kids in your life, then change it to “What I Like About Dogs/Cats/Nerds”. Pick a group of animals or people you’ll like to focus on. Share your thoughts as to what you’ve learned from them, or what you really like about them, or your loving thoughts about them.
For me, I had enjoyed children-free life for so long, that when I first started living with them, I needed some time to readjust. Kids do bring changes to lifestyles. Haha…
Taking away the days or moments when my patience was sorely tested, there’s several things I like about children. Just look at the adorable photo my brother-in-law took of my youngest niece Cleo below. How could I not be melted? :-) This layout serves to remind me the good sides of children.
I’ve listed down 13 things I found admirable in kids (ok, my two nieces) that I’ve observed. Stuff like – Willingness to risk again and again, showing you their “real self”, “speaking out from their little hearts and minds, etc.
Spend some minutes to think about whom you’ll like to scrapbook about. If it’s children, great. If it’s about another group, that’s wonderful too. Just be sure to share what you like about them! Enjoy!
