My inspiration for this record of my days:

“The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. . . . I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less” -Anna Quindlen

Jonah’s journal

A couple of weeks ago, the primary kids all got to sing to Jonah for his birthday. The primary presidency had a special gift for him- a little notebook with a pen.

Jonah loves it! For several days he carried it around with him, drawing or writing in it. At night he had to make sure he had his “journal” with him so he could write in it before going to sleep.

The other day I picked it up to see what deep, insightful things were tumbling around in that head.

This is what I found:
