Steph, my sister-in-law, sent me a text the other day asking if I could make my Will a new notebook. He's been using one that I'd given her and even though he can't read, she wasn't sure a 2 year old should be running around with a notepad that says SHIT on the front. Turns out my Duly Noted notebook look a lot like a Blues Clues notepad to my nephew.
When I was there last weekend I got to see it in person. Every page is scribbled on or has drawings from my Mom and Steph. It was so awesome; totally well worn but with all the pages still intact. Will flipped through it carefully looking for a fresh page and I drew the picture of my mom, Nana, who is Will's favorite.
Who knew my notebooks were good for more than hoarding?
