I know in two or three decades, both daughters are going to be in therapy, and all of their woes will be able to be traced directly back to this – for every one hundred pet pictures – dogs, cat, rats, guinea pig and even gerbil – that I post online, I post MAYBE one of them.
I have a very good reason! I do not love our pets one hundred times more than our daughters! There, now it is in print. Future problems solved! I, like most parents, am super neurotically protective of our kids and especially of our kids online.
So when our oldest asked to start a blog “like Mom” I said “NO!” When Russ figured out how to set it up with ten passwords, extra locks and an invisibility cloak, I said “maybe…
“When I saw that she could safely blog with only the admiring eyes of her parents, grandparents and cousin watching, I relaxed…a little.
Then she asked to stay up with me and blog for Blogathon 2010. By then I saw that it could be done safely, and was pretty much ok with the idea. Well, I am glad I set my many neuroses aside for this day…it has been such a fun experience to blog together! We fell asleep briefly and posted late at four am…or five am…or something. Anyway, we are back on track. For me, that’s pretty impressive, but for a kid too young to have stay-up-all-night sleepovers and much too young to have stay-up-all-night study fests, that is VERY impressive!
I will have Amanda post some of her wisdom here next hour. Mostly she has posted cute puppy pictures. But, hey! Isn’t that what most of us do? Those are some of my favorite posts!
