i know for a lot of you bloggers out there, your kids are way too young to read your blog and this probably isn't even in your realm of thinking for the moment...
but my kid? my amazingly sweet and sensitive boy? well he's almost 12. and while he doesn't read my blog.... that doesn't mean that he's not getting to the age where he might start? or where his friends might start?!?!!
i mean, does that happen?
i have been thinking a lot about that lately. that blake is getting older. next year he'll be in junior high school and i feel that that is when everything is going to change. and even though blake does and says a lot of stuff that i want to write about here... i don't. i tend to stop myself because i don't think at this point that it's fair to him to write about certain topics without at least asking him.
i know that yvonne asks her kids before writing anything.. at least the older ones, right? so even when there are things she wants to share and write about, she doesn't because they may not want her too.
i think that's the way to go as the kids get older. at least for posts involving them.
BUT.. then that brings me to this next question. what about the shit we write about ourselves?!? the super personal stories, experiences, etc. do we start to censor ourselves as our kids get older because then it's not about what our kids friends read about our kids... it's what our kids friends read about US!! i mean, really.
24 at heart... yoo hooo... do your kids read your blog? do your kids friends read your blog?!
that is where i'm at now. wondering if our kids friends ever read our blogs and then make fun of, or use it against our kids?!?
this growing up thing is hard. what do you think? what do you plan on doing as your kids get older?
