Preparing for Baby: Be Like Tory Burch (and me)...

Would there be anything better than having a best friend who happens to design super cute high end clothing??  Well my friends I think I may have an in to a new BFF who does just that.  I was reading my O Magazine the other night and came across an interview with Tory Burch and one of the questions was "What was your best gift to yourself?"  Here answer was this:

I've been writing an ongoing letter to my children since they were born, full of  recollections of their childhoods.  I've filled two journals.  It's a great thing to do as a mother-you forget a lot as you go along, but reading over what you've written brings all the memories back.

I, too have kept journals since my boys were born chronicling all of the milestones.  It's as much for me as it is them.  I kept track of my first son's eating and sleeping habits as well as when he got his first tooth.  It helped so much when it came time for my second and I had inevitably forgotten when and how things happen.  I write it as though I am writing to them so that one day they can read through and see what they were like and exactly how I was feeling about them each step of the way.  Well, maybe not exactly how I was feeling on some days but I don't really write on those days.

I am so excited to see that Tory (we're first name basis now) does the same.  Surely we would enjoy each other's company.  She could bring her boys over for a playdate, we could sip coffee, discuss reality tv, and I could borrow her clothes!  My gift to all expecting mothers is to buy a journal and start writing in it while you are pregnant.  Write about your feelings about the bundle on the way and the changes in your body.  Write about your labor story and then continue writing after the baby is born.  It is one of the best things I have ever done as a new mom for me and my kids!  


  1. I have been toying with the idea of doing a blog for this very reason, and I think you just convinced me too!!

  2. You definitely should! It would be a great way to keep pictures too!
