Tape or video recorder, or paper and pen
Talk with your child about the derivation of her name, why it was chosen, who she was named after (if anyone), and the name’s value and significance to you as a parent. Talk with your parents, aunts, or uncles about why your own name was chosen and share that information with your child, too. Document this discussion in the form of a story or dictated conversation.
Recording your conversations, either on tape or video will forever preserve these memories. Your child will treasure your voice forever. Play this tape at night every so often like a bedtime story and make it available to grandparents or babysitters when you aren’t there.
