I currently keep a “Baby Journal” for each child which I write in periodically. My hope is to give them to the kids when they are older to have thoughts and musings from Mom that they can read and enjoy (hopefully!). Perhaps there is a way to incorporate what we’ve written in the Blog into those. Or just copy the blog somehow as you say.

You and Jay need to consider keeping all of your blogs for your kids to read when they are grown if you haven’t already. (Just imagine Abigail reading this when she is age 23!)

Andrew’s claim is true…I was totally in love with him the moment I met him. Still am…and I’m going to resist the urge to disclaim for once!!
Jennifer, I agree with you about kids’ concepts of time. Abigail’s favorite phrases when referring to something in the past are, (for instance) “When I was two I got a baby brother” or “When I was three I went to see Thomas” but every now and again she reverts to “last night something happened” when it really might have occurred several nights or even a couple weeks ago.
Angie, I hope not!! Guess we’d better have some more discussion with her on this point!
Darren, nice to blog-meet you. Thank you for your kind words.

We might call them ‘simplistic’ or ‘uneducated’ if it were an adult saying them – but really they are the way we are supposed to be in my books….like a child…..
hmm….you’ve put a smile on my dial today.

hmmmmmm…….does this mean that she thinks you and jay are brother and sister?
Wed, 02 Apr 2003 23:28:09 +0000http://www.hornes.org/?p=165#comment-405This concept has gone around in our family. Calvin and Nevin both used to think they would marry Evangeline. The boys also used to talk about marrying me when they grow up. They have all now moved on to suggestions of marrying classmates at school. The other funny thing to me is how the first conversation with Abigail shows the typical lack of understanding of time for pre-schoolers. It is just this year that Calvin really has a grip on days and months versus years. Nevin still says, “last year” for something that happened yesterday or last week.
Wed, 02 Apr 2003 03:12:46 +0000http://www.hornes.org/?p=165#comment-404I seem to remember a story about a certain sister who wanted to marry her brother as well (nine years her junior)…runs in the family I guess…
Tue, 01 Apr 2003 18:34:48 +0000http://www.hornes.org/?p=165#comment-403Steph made the comment later to me that actually, Abigail will get to meet Noah one day in heaven. Hopefully I will be able to communicate this to her in the future!
Mommy Ruth, I asked Abigail whom Nicolas would marry and she didn’t have an answer for me. Perhaps this’ll be another reason for her to continue to ask if we could get her a baby sister!!
Tue, 01 Apr 2003 12:42:51 +0000http://www.hornes.org/?p=165#comment-402And just who(m?) does she have in mind for Nicolas to marry? Too funny!
