Over the weekend I was finally able to tackle a little project that was well and truly over due - organising Cruz's birthday cards. A year over due to be exact. After Cruz's first birthday I put all his cards into a little basket in our office and then didn't look at them again until his second birthday when I added his new cards and the cards started to overflow. I had visions of our office starting to fill up with birthday cards as the years progressed, looking more like a greeting card store than a home office.
Cruz loves looking through all of his cards and enjoys hearing which card came from Oupa and Gran as well as seeing all the cards that his friends drew or 'wrote in'. It was an easy organising project, but one that meant that I had another free basket in the house, a tick off the to do list and a new file to add to our office shelves, out of the road and off the floor.
Would you believe that one of the things still left to do on my list is Cruz's baby book? Yup. He is two years old now... and I am still looking for inspiration. I think it might be time to start.
