It is hard for me to believe that I began blogging to document my newborn and toddlers firsts including rolling over to eating solids. Along the way, my writing has transformed, hopefully improved and inspired others. Yes, despite the changes happening, writing has remained a constant.
Now my son is asking to read my blog posts.
My boy is interested in reading everything from cereal boxes to National Geographic and also intrigued by the possibilities of computers. He sits next to me often when I am writing asking questions about the topics and logistics. Ironically, he often helps me too as he can recite facts I could never remember.
On a case-by-case basis, I see little harm in allowing him to read my words. Yet, I wonder if I am opening a can of worms that can cause problems later. Will this blossom into reading my Facebook, Twitter and emails?
Its weird to think that my kids will be my age reading my blog posts to their kids someday. Or maybe, there will be something new and blogging will go way of VHS, floppy disks and MySpace.
I've never regretted anything I've written; yet do worry if I may down the road as my little ones morph into teenagers.
Do you allow your children to read emails, Facebook statuses or blog posts?
