If you survived parenthood and your children are now adults, take this moment to celebrate. You can finally relax. The (minimum) 18 years you just spent caring for those little people probably took so much out of you, that you just want to crawl in bed for another 18 years.
The only problem is that now you miss it. You miss the craziness and chaos. You miss the spills and the messes. You miss the bruises and the crying. You miss having your little children drive you insane.
Now they’re adults, and while you still love them uncontrollably, it’s just not the same because they can reach the top shelf all by themselves now.
Luckily, you probably have hundreds of photos of your kids laying around your house. Just having them in the house doesn’t always suffice. Wholly 44% of parents admit that they often can’t locate photos of their children and about 52% admit that they have not done anything to preserve their children’s photos for the future.
What to do with all those pictures is up to you, but you should know that there are professional photo scanning services available that can store all those memories in a digital photo album. Old photo restoration services can even preserve some of the oldest family photos you have.
Keeping your children’s memories stored digitally forever with professional photo scanning will allow you to create wonderful digital photo albums and give to them as gifts, share with friends and family, and just be able to look back and reminisce on those wonderful times.
Holding on and storing baby photos of your children is extremely important. In fact, about one-fourth of Americans admit that their family photos are more valuable than both Social Security cards and birth certificates, making photos the most valued documents families own. Save every precious moment from your child’s early years: their first birthday party, their first Christmas, the first day of school, or that time they were chased by a butterfly in the backyard, save them all.
Some of the proudest moments a parent can have are during their children’s school accomplishments. You can make an entire digital photo album focusing on their athletic career. From Tee Ball to varsity, documenting their career in sports will be greatly appreciated by your children once you give them the digital photo album. They will surely love looking back on “the good old days.” Graduations and prom nights are also some of the most photo-friendly and important nights of a child’s life.
If your children have reached the age where they are beginning to start families of their own, you’ll want to hold on to pictures of their special day for eternity. Work with professional photo scanning services to take all those beautiful wedding pictures and transfer them onto a digital photo album to be shared and admired for years.
