Introduction

W

hen this organizer’s predecessor, The Little Big Book for Moms, was originally conceived, it was because we felt there was a hole in the market. We could see that young mothers needed a single resource for all the classics—from

recipes to fairy tales. In its first year, more than 150,000 copies have been sold and many moms and little ones are cuddling up together with it. Now we’ve created this organizer to fill another need. We know there are a lot of keepsake books out there for you to choose from, but The Little Big Organizer for Moms is much more than a keepsake book. It’s for you. There’s room here for you to keep your child’s life organized, including places for medical records, birth certificates, playmates, babysitters, school information, and much, much more. And before baby’s born, there’s a whole section just for you to keep track of your own doctor’s visits, a place for you to chart your physical progress, and a place for you to plan your baby’s room. There’s also tons of space for you to record the things you just want to make sure never to forget, like the day you brought your baby home from the hospital, what your baby’s first word was, or what your toddler called his or her favorite stuffed animal at age three. There are places for all the firsts, and places for your most important photographs. We know it’s busy being a new mom, and we hope to make it easier for you. Let this book help you organize, and provide helpful reminders about what’s important to write down now—before you forget. In this single volume there is room for all the information you need to store, as well as all the memories you want to record. Down the road we hope this is something you make into a gift for your child. But right now, it’s for you. So congratulations. Enjoy your little one. Lena Tabori & Katrina Fried (We are mother and daughter)
