Too Young to Blog – Giveaway

***If you’d like to be entered to win a This is Me Journal, leave a comment that lists your favorite beverage. I’ll pick 2 winners randomly Wednesday at 10pm PST.***

Although Laylee’s a frequent indirect contributor to Daring Young Mom, she’s too young to actually blog. However I love hearing what she has to say about life. Her pictures tell so much about what’s going on inside that amazing little head of hers.

this is me journalOne of my favorite ways to dig in and find out what really matters to her is with the This is Me Journal. Designed by a fellow mom-blogger, this journal is going to be an absolute goldmine of preciousness and blackmail material for years to come.

It’s part journal with questions and fill-in-the-blanks, part drawing pad and part scrapbook. Luckily the scrapbooking component is very small and easy. Insert picture of your favorite stuffed octopus here. I can handle that.
her hair pretty much stays the same
Laylee listed me as one of her best friends and for favorite drinks she listed lemonade, strawberry lemonade, apple juice, cow’s milk (as opposed to the milk of a tsetse fly), and soda with Echinacea in it (a family favorite sick drink).

For the first several days after receiving it in the mail, Laylee slept with her “Book of Me” under her arm. When I suggested we put it somewhere safer, she took initiative and hid it. I finally found it today months later and we had a blast working on it. The journal would make a great gift for young friends and cousins whose homes seem to be filled with every new gadget and toy. I plan to buy copies the next few years for Laylee, help her fill them out and see how they compare.
all dressed up
Maybe in the future she’ll decide she doesn’t like cow’s milk anymore but I’m sure I’ll always be listed as a best friend.

    OOooo! What a cool book. My 7yo daughter would love that!

    My favorite beverage is Snapple Peach Iced Tea ~ no ice ~ cold from the fridge in glass bottles ~ YUM! Gotta love the little trivia under the lid, too.

    Awesome giveaway. My sister would love it.

    My favorite beverage is Martinelli’s sparkling cider. I can down an entire bottle in under sixty seconds. Okay maybe that’s an exaggeration.

    looks like a great christmas gift for nieces and nephews.

    my favorite drink? i have a hard time choosing favorites. i’m partial to water, strawberry lemonade (as long as it’s fresh squeezed and not countrytime), and hot chocolate.

    How boring is water? But it’s what I drink. Maybe if I had a “This is me” journal as a child, I would be more creative and would think of better things to drink.

  5. Amy says:

    Pick me! Pick me! 🙂 My daughter would love that! Her favorite drink is lemonaide and mine is pretty much anything by Starbucks!

  6. That’s a really cute book! My favorite thing to drink right now are the Vitamin Waters. Not the healthiest, but better than no water I think. In the fall and winter my fave is the Eggnog Latte from Starbucks.

    This is a great idea! My almost 5yr. old daughter would love it!

  8. Rachel says:

    I love your blog! A friend of mine linked to yours… and now I’m here! 🙂

    My favorite drink, if I’m being spoiled, is a virgin strawberry daiquiri with lots of whipped cream. But my everyday favorite beverage is water. I love water. 🙂 boring huh ? 🙂
