Everyone is a photographer these days, and every moment is photogenic, especially for mothers. Every now and then their kid will do something and mothers would whip out their cell phones to take pictures.
Now to a doting mother, all pictures are important and she will not delete any of it if she has her way. But short listing snaps for a scrapbook is a little different than making a folder in your computer to store all clicks. Only the best photos taken on special occasions will make it to the kid’s scrapbook.
So how does one decide which pictures to keep for scrapbook and which ones to leave for an album someday? Here are some pointers which might help a mother decide:
1. Is that picture momentous? For example, the expression on your kid’s face when he had something spicy for the first time, embellished on a scrapbook page with the bill of that meal, will make a great scrapbook entry. Or a picture of the naughty one stealing a candy from the kitchen cabinet, alongside the wrapper of that candy --- these are the kind of pictures which make a scrapbook peppy.
2. Chronicle all the awards that your child has won at school or at summer camps. Make them pose with their certificates and coaches. This scrapbooking idea is a great way of remembering teachers in a child’s initial years.
3. Take series of pictures against the same wall year after year to indicate growth in your kid’s height. You can also make your boy wear his dad’s shirt every year till the time he actually fits into them perfectly.
4. Apart from taking pictures of all the “firsts” in your child’s life, make an effort to go the extra mile and get his friends or teachers to write something for him in the scrapbook. Not only will it brighten up the layout of the scrapbook, but it will be a part of your kid’s memories forever.
