Blog Reading...

It actually happened last night…Kylie started reading some of my blog entries :)

I get my blog published into a hardcover book every couple of years. It’s the best $100 I spend! The books are gorgeous and my memories are forever saved (well, maybe not forever, but I feel a little better knowing that if something ever happened to my blog I would at least have every entry somewhere). Anyway, I have kept the books in our family room, right next to all the photobooks I have ever made. I have told Kylie that every year I write her a birthday note, and that she should read it sometime, but she always blows me off and complains that I write about her at all. I tell her not to worry and that I only write about her so that I’ll remember it and that no one reads this but me (shhhhh, don’t tell!).

So last night I hear her laughing from the couch, and I ask her what she’s doing and she says “I’m reading the purple book.” I have no idea what she’s talking about, and she clarifies with “the purple book, you know, the one you keep over on that table.” Ohhh yes…the purple book is the first book. She happened to read a post about me trying to deal with my frustrations better and not take them out on John or the kids. Of course she would have to start reading posts that had to deal with me and not the kids! And she was surprised that I am still blogging…and nervous…she’s scared to death I’m going to write something embarrassing about her (who me??? Never :) ).

I hope she keeps reading pages from those books…I hope she sees how much John and I love her, and I hope that even when she feels like we don’t, she’ll be able to read those books or even sneak a peek at the live blog and see that everything we do we do out of love for each of our kiddos.
