Spud noticed this on the shelf the other day. I explained to him that we sealed it after his first birthday and it's not to be opened until he's 18 years old. "Is that a long time?" he asked, and "What's in there?". I tried my best to explain but it's definitely time to tuck it away.
So, what's in there? Shhh. It's a secret. And actually, I've tried to forget so it will be a little bit of a surprise for me too. But, among other things, I know that we had some baby keepsakes from the hospital, his first pair of shoes, and a guest book from his first birthday party where each guest wrote in a little message to his future self.
Only 14 years to go.
