LOVE THE BOOK!!! It arrived today!! Perfect timing--it was just Griffin and me hanging out today, so it was really fun! The 2 of us getting the mail, finding this package, and being able to sit peacefully together and share this book. He LOVES it more than I could have even imagined! And I am so impressed with the quality of it! Thank you again, Michelle!! Hope you are having a great day!
Just heard that "Dear Augustus...Love, Mummy from @memoirofme might have arrived today! I can't wait to get home! Drive slow, drive slow...
It was true! the book from @memoirofme did arrive! It is AWESOME. I love, love, love it!! Every kid needs one of these books!!!
@memoirofme Thanks again for the Memoir of Me book! After I read it to my son, I got a great big hug. I think we'll be reading it a lot!
We received our book for Ian this past weekend and it is great! It is very high quality and I think he will love it. I can't wait to place an order for Ashley and Andrew!

It’s been 33 days. 3 books a day. For a total of 99.
As 99 in 33 comes to close, I reflect on the kids and parents and aunts and uncles and grandmas and grandpas. The stories of triumph overcoming tragedy. I think of Abby, who has battled cancer since age three, and Ian who’s birth mom did just die of an overdose, and Ceriah who struggles with diabetes and Hayley who lost her mom to cancer and the triplets Nicholas, Delaney and Alannah. I think of the stories of quiet moments made meaningful with funny thoughts. I think of Griffin who at age three does Sudoku and Ben in the bathtub and Charley and Josh and Seth. And Grace who sings rock songs. And Will who hacks into his dad’s iphone. These stories -- like little seeds nestled in the fertile part of my heart. These stories -- growing into the landscape of my story, too.
The last stories I’m sharing, Dads and Daughters! The first is Matt and Maddy and Liz’s story. Matt and Liz moved from Minnesota to Los Angeles. Liz was pregnant and gave birth to Maddy. Complication during birth took Liz from Matt and Maddy. Matt has been raising and blogging about his experiences as a single dad here. So when Matt came back with Maddy to visit everyone in Minnesota, we captured Maddy’s first sledding experience in a Memoir of Me book. Thank you, Matt, Maddy and Liz!
The last goes to a little sweetie and her dad in St. Louis Park. Skylar! Below is a picture of her in pj’s, swim cap and goggles. Skylar’s dad, Jared, just competed in the world Cycle cross Championships in Belgium January of 2010. Looks like looks like Skylar maybe wanted to swim across the Atlantic to follow in Dad’s active footsteps. An ordinary day for Skylar makes an extraordinary day for her Mom and Dad! Excited to share Skylar’s memories in a Memoir of Me book!
