When you’re a mom it can often feel like you don’t have time to brush your hair or check yourself in the mirror before you leave the house, so it’s no wonder that finding the time to chronicle the ins and outs of motherhood takes a back seat to your busy schedule. But preserving some of those special, every day moments doesn’t have to be a major project.
Check out this brand new Mom’s Five-Second Memory Journal ($10; randomhouse.com). It’s full of prompts, questions and even places to sketch about the various aspects of your life. The best part? This journal is designed so that whenever you have a minute (or, more likely, 5 seconds!) you can flip to any page you want to jot down your thoughts. Plus, it measures a mere 4 1/2 x 5 1/2”, so you don’t have to worry about it hogging space in your diaper bag or purse. Bring it with you wherever you go and before you know it you’ll have a bound book full of funny moments, sweet sayings, and your favorite things about being a mom!
Here are two fun pages we found — tell us how you’d fill them out in the comments!

The best thing about having a child is that I’ve gotten to:

Wander endlessly in toy stores
Tap into my multitasking abilities. I’m good at this mommy thing!
