One of the birthday traditions I have kept up and absolutely adore is asking my boys about all their favorite things on their birthday through a little quiz….same questions year after year.
It is so much fun to look back on their answers and see how things have changed and how they stay the same. I think they will absolutely love seeing who they were as a 6 or 10 or 15 year old as they get older…plus I love the one on one time to converse with them and get to know who they are and who and what is important to them at that moment in time. Things I wish I could remember about my own childhood!
I attach my favorite photo of them from the previous year and a little note about who they are through my eyes…how they have grown, what they have struggled with, how they have triumphed. It is a sweet moment for me to reflect.
As a mom, I will love looking back on those little boys and the memories their words hold, and it will be so fun to gift them their own copy to read and laugh about when they start their own family.
Preserving memories is always worth the work, and this little tradition is an absolute pleasure!
Here are questions you can copy and paste electronically or a JPEG below you can use if you would prefer a hard copy to hold on to!
