From the moment I became pregnant with my first child I started to write to her. How I felt, what it was like all so that someday she would read it and know what it was like. My childhood is a black hole with no photographs or memories and from the moment I knew I would be a mother I never wanted my children to feel that way.
I started a blog called Pinky’s Journey’s and Adventures where I wrote about my journey and called myself Pinky. Then shortly after Kaila turned 1 I created a blog that I named An Ordinary Life, now Our Ordinary Life. My blog was just posts written about our life. Exactly like I do to this day. Writing to my children so they’d always know exactly how I feel about them at every moment of their life. I wish I knew what my parents thought about me when I was born, the look they had in their eyes when they saw me for the first time. What my 1st birthday was like and my first words and steps. My blog was my place to ensure that my children would know, so I record so that one day I will show them. One day they will read upon my words and know who their mother was personally and emotionally during their childhood, who they were.
I think to myself one day, I will share these words with them. One day they will understand. Someday…
As mom bloggers isn’t this what we do?
