Decided to try a little project with the daughters. I created them both an account with Google (Yes, I know...) and I'm sending them an email every other day or so, adding a few pictures of our lives as we grow, making little videos and saving them, and so forth. A digital diary, if you will.
When they turn 18, I'll hand them the username and password.
Might be 5+ years of effort for nothing, but we shall see.
At any rate, writing emails now, knowing they won't be read for years, is kinda challenging. I find that I need to pay extra close attention to the tense (past, present, etc.) and I'm re-re-reading things over and over to ensure they sound right. I guess I should probably be doing that anyway, but I generally don't. I'll typically write something, just letting the words flow from the fingers, read it once to check punctuation, and post it.
It's different, that's for sure.
