A Great Gift for a New Parent!!!!

 I have these cool things hanging on the bedroom wall. My mom buys one each time I have a baby. They are from a company called Birthday Keepsake, and run about $10 plus shipping. Each one has my kid's name, birthdate, weight at birth, time of birth, place of birth and then a lot of stuff that was going on the year they were born. I love this kind of stuff because you can see how much a gallon of gas or milk was the year your kid was born. You can see popular shows and toys and which movies won awards and what was in the news.
I'm not getting anything to write about this company; just wanted to share it because anytime anyone comes over and sees these on my bedroom wall they freak out and want one for each of their kids! I'm a little sentimental and am pretty sure someday I'll sit and stare at these and cry when my babies are all moved out of the house. Hell, who am I kidding? I do that ALREADY. Some days they drive me INSANE, but always in the back of my mind I am aware of the fact that it is all zooming by too fast. And YES, old ladies, I DO appreciate it all right now and try to treasure every day!
