Keeping Memories the Latino Way

I swore I wouldn’t be one of those moms who started her baby’s memory book with fervor and wrote something on it every single day from the moment she was born only to stop doing it abruptly after about her second birthday. But, I have to fess up: that’s exactly what has happened.

However, because I believe in second chances, a couple of weeks before my newborn, Santiago, was born back in August, I frantically started looking for a memory book for him, but all I could find were different versions of the exact same one I’d bought for Vanessa more than three years ago. The weird thing is that they seemed to be from different companies and the designs and font were totally different, but the content was exactly the same.

And then, I found this memory book in Spanish called “Esta es mi historia” sold exclusively through the online store, Dolls Like Me, which we recently reviewed here. And I was truly surprised by its originality.

Here’s a few things I really liked about it:

  • It’s in Spanish – Yay!
  • It’s a three-ring binder – meaning you can add or take out the pages
  • As you can see in the picture above, it includes categories that only Latinos celebrate, like Reyes Magos.

Ok, time for another confession. The memory book goes all the way from birth to your child’s high school graduation. I’m sorry, but I don’t see it happening. If I thought going all the way to first grade was too much, imagine keeping memories for 12 more years! Anyhow, it’s nice to know it’s there. I bet I’ll probably be really diligent and excited about filling out the pages of some of the years, while some of the others will stay as clean and empty as they are right now ;) Either way, at least it’s totally different from anything else out there!
