Yesterday, I stumbled across a new blog via another blog. . .well, you know how the blog trail goes. I love it so much that not only did I add it to my BlogReader, I really wanted to share it with you too.
50 Pieces of Prudent Advice for my Baby Daughter
(click above to go to her website)
I currently write a journal to each of my girls sharing special events with them, thoughts or feelings that I have or words of wisdom that I will someday give them when the moment is right. (SHH! Don't tell them about it though. It's a secret.) But I really like the way she just has an ongoing list of sometimes simple, and sometimes quite profound little nuggets of truth to help her daughter navigate life. For example:
#173 When you're driving and someone lets you into their lane, thank them with a hand wave.
#48 When something tragic happens to someone you care about, make sure not to ignore them just because you don't know what to say.
And there are more. . .so many more. So just get over there and be prepared to stay awhile—and wish you had written the list yourself. Who knows, maybe you'll start a list or a journal for your own little one.
