I had a dream for my blog when I started it all those years ago.
It would be an online journal of our lives. It would show my kids the sort of childhood they had, what family life was like, what I was like, how I felt about raising them, the highs the lows the bits in-between.
And I’ve always remained true to that.
Well let me tell you dear readers, it has paid off. My kids look back on old posts on my blog and they love them. THEY LOVE THEM. I did good (does a little heel click in the air – I can’t actually do them in real life, but this is a virtual celebration so anything goes).
They love to read back on funny things they said, adventures we’ve been on, the phase when I was almost too afraid to go to the supermarket because every time (really, ever time) I stepped through those doors Mia would embarrass me.
And here’s the best bit; they ask me to read posts back to them. “Read the one about when you nearly had to cancel Christmas, mummy”
So to all those bloggers out there who are blogging for the same reason, I give you a renewed injection of inspiration; there is a very real chance your kids will love you even MORE when they’re old enough to read back through your archives *ahem*
