Documenting your Days

Thank you to Texting Journal by Memorybox for sponsoring this post.

I know I am not the only mama out there who wants to document every single detail of every single day of their children's lives. But every single day, before I know it, the day has ended, and no journal entry has been made.

It only took me about a day after Cannon was born to realize I wasn't going to be able to keep up with his baby book. I was trying to write directly in it, and it was not happening. Truth be told, I think he as almost a week old before we even got his foot prints in his baby book. I knew I needed to come up with something else to keep track of his little life. I started a notes page in my phone titled Cannon's Baby Book. Before too long I realized I was usually catching milestones, but I wasn't capturing funny stories, documenting his sweet smile and the way his little face changed so quickly nor was I writing down his favorite books or toys.

I attempted to do better with this, but when I found time to sit down and write, I always seemed to draw a blank.

When Asher was born I refused to be so terrible at documenting his days. When I found Texting Journal I knew I had to have it!! Texting Journal works by sending you a daily prompt via text. You text in your response, and it is saved in your secure account. Depending on your plan, you can also send pictures along with your text response. You'll have 24/7 access to your entries to read or edit them. Texting Journal allows you to export your memories and/or have them printed into a hard cover book.

I personally love the prompts sent by Texting Journal, but if you have something you want to add in, that's no problem. You can send in a thought or a memory at anytime! You never have to wait on the prompt.

I have my prompts set to come in at night, so I can send in my prompt as I am getting ready for bed. If I forget it, it's there waiting on me the next morning. Texting Journal is currently offering a free trial. Head over to their website {here}!
