Do you sometimes feel like the family historian?
I find it so fascinating that we now have so much technology at our disposal to personally record and document our lives and our children’s lives.
These days your entire family history can live on your phone: a recording device you carry around with you that’s able to recall, replay, and relive a specific day 5 years ago, when you actually captured your child’s first toddles or their first time saying “mama” or “shoes” (in my case).
I myself am nostalgically sentimental to my core, so I like to keep a physical record of my children’s lives … maybe to one day give back to them, or maybe just for myself to remember the fullness of these beautiful, chaotic, and fleeting years of their childhood.
So without further ado, here is the list:
I imagine myself 40 years from now flipping through these archives and being able to transport myself back to my present “now” — heart so full of memories that it aches.
I imagine that I’ll be so glad to see myself in these photographs with my children — to see what motherhood looked like on me. To see the way that I held them, and how they held onto me.
And I’ll see how even in the everyday mess of life, that there was immense love that could never be outgrown.
So get in the picture, mama.
Remember that it’s your story that you’re recording as well.
