So that is what we were doing yesterday, put the baby to bed (only so much 'help' you need!) the we sat down to make the present and we made a loving memory jar cost was minimal which in the current climate is always grateful.
Pretty Jar £2
Paper Couple of sheets £ minimal
Memories £ priceless
With a drink and a snack to get the kids concentrating we sat down and all thought of the things that we love about daddy and the things we love to do when we spend time with him, each child noted about 5 down as did I and filled some in for the baby.
We then typed them out spaced out on sheets in a pretty font.
cut them into strips about 10cm wide each one with a memory on and whose its was
roll up and tie with a piece of ribbon into a scroll
put all the scrolls into the jar (I added a few of his favourite sweets (which happen to be love hearts - quite apt ) for good measure)
then everytime he is having a hard day or having a bad day with any of the children he can take himself off and remind himself that it is only a phase and that we all really do love him - which we do LOTS x x
