Celebrate your first months of being a mum with our personalised book for new mothers.
Tips on writing the story
- Read the story below so you can see how your answers fit in the sentence
- The story is written on behalf of the child. Select more than one child in the dropdown, and we'll change the story inside to be "Our Dad" etc.
- Only use capitals where they are needed eg: proper names.
- Remember punctuation if needed within your sentence (commas etc) - we'll add punctuation to the end if appropriate!
- Include "the" if needed eg: "the park" and remember verbs eg: "playing football".
- We read each book and will amend tenses etc, but will not amend your spelling or the content of your answer.
- On the inside front cover we print a personalised message so they can treasure the book for years to come.
- Tell us the amount of days since baby's birth - remember to do it from day you are giving book (eg Mother's Day) not from day of ordering.
- Select how many children the book is from - if twins, all text will be changed to "We love" etc (although the pictures show singular woodland animals).
(Baby’s date of birth) The day you became my Mummy… and an expert in me! You are the best Mum in the world and no one can do it better than you. You keep me happy and safe in our home in (home town e.g. London), and I’m your number one fan! You know how to make me smile by (what you do e.g. tickling my feet) and how to send me to sleep by (what you do e.g. driving around in the car). You are a world expert at changing nappies, even though I wriggle and make it as hard as possible! I love the thoughtful gifts you buy me, they make my tiny world even more amazing. My favourite is (favourite object or toy e.g.: my cloud mobile) but I’m growing up so quickly that might change very soon! I know being a Mummy is sometimes hard, even for one as amazing as you. You are so patient with me, even when (something challenging baby does e.g. I pull at your necklace all the time). Thank you for making my life so interesting, by taking me to (places you go e.g. baby groups or Grandparents). I know I can be a little bit messy! Thank you for always cleaning me up, so I can make a bigger mess next time! I love it when we look at each other and you make me smile. You are the first person I want to see in the morning and the last one I see at night (and sometimes during the night as well!) I’m sorry for squealing sometimes, it’s just my way of saying, ‘I miss you!’ Thank you for giving me millions of kisses, hundreds of cuddles, (amount of days since birth) days of happiness, and your love, forever and always.
A Gift To Thank Mum
The story is written on behalf of the baby, thanking Mum for all the wonderful things she does eg how she makes the baby laugh, places they visit, going to sleep etc.
