Hi there! What an awesome idea! I don't have children, but I have two nieces (2 and 8) who are the light of my life and spend lots of time with us (DH and me).

Thanks to you for doing this and to UtahJenny for linking me over from her blog. :-)

Take care!

My daughters would write about pets, living in a new house, having sisters, school, etc. They LOVE to draw and create so this would be perfect for them
