Time in a bottle

I don't usually post about a gift idea that I've seen in a few other places in the blog world, however, this idea deserves another mention. It has all the makings of a great gift. It is a simple idea with meaning and thought written all over it.
Keep a jar in a handy place and every time your kids say something funny or clever, write it down and throw it in the jar. Children say very funny things, but remembering those things is never as easy as you think it will be. This could be gathered secretly and given to Dad on his birthday or gift yourself by reading one on a day you could use a smile. Don't have kids, you could do this with any little funny moments you want to remember. You could even wrap up one of these with a stack of nice paper and give it to a new parent.
