30 Things My Kids Should Know About Me


I’m consistently inconsistent, in that I have a habit of starting things that I never finish. Jayden’s baby book that was supposed to be done before Jaxon was born? Incomplete. Jaxon’s monthly photo updates? Well, I took the photos. I can go on about the many things I have failed at, but that would be quite depressing. What I will do is pick up the pieces and finish things on my on time… no time constraints.

I’m adding something to my queue for Jayden, Jaxon, and future Tatumlets. It’s a fun little project I found over at Jen’s blog, Baby Making Machine. It’s called “30 Things My Kids Should Know About Me”. You post the prompts on your blog and turn it into an 8×8 printable book using the graphics she’s provided or you can make your own. You can read her list and snag the graphics here.

This project is similar to one I planned on doing using a memoir book my mother-in-law gave me as inspiration. I still plan to do that, but this one’s a little easier and will help me get into the swing of things. My list is below and I will be updating it as I complete each assignment!

1. List 20 random facts about yourself.
2. Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.
3. Describe your relationship with your spouse.
4. List 10 things you would tell your 16 year-old self, if you could.
5. What are the 5 things that make you most happy right now?

Brilliant list! As a babysitter, I constantly am asked, What is my mommy like in the grown up world? It totally makes me lol, but to be honest, sometimes it takes a little extra effort to have your kids get to know you! Awesome blog :)
