Did any of you have one of these hanging in your church while you were growing up?
I did, and I always liked looking at it. I feel like I even remember seeing my own name written on our chart. These charts hold a lot of pages, so it's possible that I did. It's also possible that I have a manufactured memory of seeing my own name. But I know I remember seeing my youngest sister's name for sure.
Before Daphne was born I volunteered in the nursery at the church we attend now and it brought on a touch of nostalgia to see one of these same charts for keeping track of the babies born in the church.
Today when dropping Daphne off at the nursery I realized that the tradition has continued:
I wonder if they'll let me cut out Daphne's name so I can put it in her baby book.
Just kidding. Maybe they'll let me have the whole chart.
