Six Things You Should Save for Your Kids
Great story this morning in the Huffington Post. My parents didn't do the greatest job keeping things like toys from my childhood, old report cards etc. They did however, hold onto my art work from elementary school, and had plenty of baby pictures to pass down to me.
Here are six things you should save for your kids...
1. Something with a date on it. Like a ticket stub from a movie or a baseball game. It could be from something you did together.
2. Your old passport. Or anything else meaningful from when you were younger, like your high-school diploma or your first driver's license.
3. At least a few baby photos of them. Meaning don't just keep digital copies of everything. I was really good about this for the first six-years of Macy's life.
4. An old report card. And you should try to save at least some of their artwork from when they were young. Tracy is very good about doing this!
5. Something sentimental to pass down. It doesn't have to be anything valuable like your wedding ring, just something that has a story behind it.
6. Their first pet's name tag. It's another thing you can just toss in a box and forget about, but it might be cool to find years later.
