When you have little kids, the years really seem to fly by, but take forever, all at the same time. They change so quickly when they are little, and I am quickly learning that although I think I will always remember what his favorite color is during this stage of his life, or who he BFF is this week, I am seriously mistaken. I had hesitated to fill out anything like this, because I figured it would just get lost, or thrown away. But I found these containers at Walmart awhile back, and started using them for Gabe’s artwork from school. I loved the simple organization so much that I went back and bought more, so I wouldn’t run out. I also started using them for our important paperwork. I know I should actually have stuff filed in a filing cabinet, in an organized fashion, but until we move out of our teeny tiny apartment, this keeps the chaos under control.
So today I was thinking about these year in review sheets, and realized that even if I just fill it out and throw them in his art bin, at least I will have it for later.
