This version of Early Years has been adapted, in consultation with experts, for solo mums of donor-conceived children.
Early Years is a beautifully illustrated guided pre-school memory journal to chronicle those over-too-quick early childhood years. The journal includes a place for the inclusion of donor information, this has been carefully designed so that you can cover this page with a photo or birth announcement card if you’d prefer not to include this detail. There is no reference to a second parent.
Those pre-school years really do disappear in a puff of smoke, and this can mean that all the cute and endearing little things they say and do soon get forgotten. Before you know it, they’ve come on in leaps and bounds and you are waving them off at the school gate. For a busy parent with a tiny one, it’s tricky to find time to hold onto those 0-5 year moments so this journal has guided prompts to make capturing those memories easy and enjoyable.
Cute woodland animal illustrations, thoughtful prompts, spaces to write down special moments and add cute pictures, guide you through those first five years. Once your little one is in their first school uniform, you will have created a priceless Early Years keepsake that you’ll treasure forever.
Early Years is a popular gift for a baby shower, new baby celebration, Mother’s Day, or any day of the year. A delightful, follow-on from the award-winning Bump to Birthday, a combined pregnancy and first year journal.
