Logging a Child's Life on Email

Privately Marking Momentous Occasions For Munchkins

Who needs paper and a pen when a keyboard and a screen will do? Tech-savvy parents have ditched the scribbling of notes and have taken to blogging about baby. While such platforms provide folks an easy outlet for storytelling or displaying photos of their wee ones, some people fret over the possibility of intimate information going beyond their circle of friends.

For families who are fearful of such instances, there's an easy way to keep tabs on tots while keeping private matters confidential. Set up an email account for the newborn that she can use when she is older. Every time she says something silly or passes a milestone, send her an email documenting it. To keep grandparents in the know, copy them on it. The dialogue that follows will further enrich the conversation. When your child is older, she will be able to click through and read a virtual diary of her life.
