We had a sad thought the other day: Clara probably won’t remember this house very much. Even though it has meant the world to Sherry and me, her six-month old brain might not log much of her life here into the ol’ memory bank. So we made her a video. Sure we’ve documented the heck outta this house over the last three years, so it’s not like we’d have trouble digging up pics for her, but we figured Clara deserved her own personal tour of the first place she ever called “home” with some details about what she loved and where she hung out. So we’re hoping this little Clara-centric tour of the house will jog her memory when she sees it a few years down the road. Originally we weren’t going to post it for all to see, but we figured what the heck. Why stop oversharing now?
Have you guys ever done something like this to help your kids (or even yourself) remember a house? Or do you have any other suggestions when it comes to bringing the memory of a house with you to your next place? We’re definitely planning to hang the sketch of our current house’s lot, the framed key of course, and a few other “artifacts” from our life here.
