Okay- I'm getting the hang of this.

Day two and everything I did today I thought could be something to blog about. Is this going to be my "new" life? :-)

It was one of those mornings. From the minute I woke up, it felt like I was a minute too late. Have you ever had one of those days? But then the day ends and it ends at exactly the right time and I don't even remember how it started. Okay, maybe I do :-)

So what to share?

I had an idea when I was pregnant with Braden. Since I don't really journal, but wanted to share what I was feeling and going through during pregnancy, I thought the next best thing would be to email.

I set Braden up with an email account before he was born and emailed him every now and again while I was pregnant. I wish I done it more often. But I guess it's like my blog- it takes a while to get me started.

So now, when Braden is at an age that he'll understand, he can log onto his email and read the emails I sent him. Emails about how incredibly excited his dad and I were, the things we did while we were pregnant, the feelings we had, even stories about his family. A family he would soon meet and grow to love.

We still use that email account. Braden will write emails and send photos to his family and friends. He something receives emails and we save them all.

It'll be a gift that I hope he treasures some day. I guess in the age of email, Facebook, Twitter, and the likes; it's the replacement.

So why don't you email him? Tell him a story. Share an idea. Let him know how you are feeling.

He'll read it someday. I promise you!
