Last night I was reading through a favourite blog of mine over at modern mom where the author blogged about a mother and daughter journal as a way of connecting and communicating with your child, whether they be 4 or 14.
I thought this was a fab idea! Erin and I love to be creative, we both like writing, so what a great idea to use a journal like this. Plus it will give us something to look back on many years later.
I immediately went onto Amazon and had a look on what they had to offer. The journal that was blogged about over at Modern Mom was:
Just-Between-Us - pic and bio provided by Amazon - I still haven't got the hang of making the pic into a link!
This beautiful keepsake journal is the perfect place for moms and tween
daughters to share stories and dreams, hopes and fears. Advice,
guidelines, and prompts by author Meredith Jacobs and her
thirteen-year-old daughter Sofie pave the way to discussing everything
from friends and school to crushes and growing up. With plenty of free
space to write about whatever's on their minds and fun pages for drawing
pictures and making lists, this journal will open the lines of
communication and help moms and daughters create memories that will last
But then I also came across this journal, which I thought matched Erin's age better.

From quizzes and car games to recipes and story starters, this book is
full of fun things for girls to do with their moms. They can tear out
and share the notes and gift coupons. They can test their knowledge of
each other with checklists made for two. And they can get to know each
other even better with games and activities that are sure to leave them
What is your opinion? Is this something that your daughter would enjoy?
