Love Letters

This was one of the best ideas I have ever heard!  I was recently perusing the American Baby magazine and there was a section on “Pregnancy Pick-Me-Ups” where moms wrote in with their ideas.   One mom set up an email account for her baby-on-the-way and would write emails to her throughout her pregnancy about how she was feeling and what was going on in their lives to get ready for her arrival.   As her kids were born, she kept writing to them as they grew up with stories or just quick notes to express her feelings about them.

I have wanted to be more diligent about recording my daughter’s development during these early years, but often times life has gotten so hectic, I have not done the best job.   However, writing emails is something to me that is easy!  I am setting up an account for my daughter, and am planning on writing her often about what she is doing and things I will want to remember…funny things she has said, little milestones, special moments, etc.   I was super excited about this idea and wanted to share!

    OK – you can’t share this kind of info with a pregnant woman. I started weeping in concept alone.

    I love, love this idea! I have yet to write anything in the pretty baby journals I have, but I can do this at work – easy.

    Email has become such a standard part of our daily life that this idea is absolutely fitting for this time in history. I plan to do this for both of my girls. Thanks for the tip.
