“FORWARD”ing the Past {Why You Should Email Your Little Ones Now}

Forwarding the Past

Last week I created an email account for each of my children.  Not because all the email addresses will be taken up when it’s time for them to create an account (..har har), but because I want to forward memories to them that I don’t want to get lost in translation.

Everyone is getting older, that’s no secret.  But over time, memories, photos, and keepsakes disappear.  I want to share with my children photos/jokes that made me laugh, or old pictures of my relatives who are no longer with us, or even current videos that put a smile on my face and remind me that they won’t be little for too long.  Those little snippets of time that I want to keep…I’m forwarding to them now.

{Maybe I’ll surprise them with it when they turn 18.}
