On this week's Momversation, we talk about posting photos of our kids. Something I clearly do. That being said, I have recently made private most of my flickr photos and will be posting few if any photos of Archer here anymore. Same will go for Fable when she's his age. I've explained my reasoning for wanting to do this and it has nothing to do with fear of pervs or weirdos but rather, respect for my kids' privacy once they're at the age when what is happening in their lives becomes, well, none of my business (to share, here). That's all me, though. We're all going in different directions trying to get to the same place. We all have different boundaries, life experiences, fears, foes and that's okay. At the same time, it's crucial me thinks to maintain a sense of humor about computerland and it's surreality, the fact that we're all kind of accessible, no mater how anonymous we think we are.
I do today what I feel is right for me and us right now, knowing that tomorrow that might change. On my blog. In my life. Marriage. Career. All of the above.
We put so much pressure on ourselves to be everything to everybody, fighting expectations with swords of insecurity, trying to protect what is impossible to.
Carry on, I say, no matter what you're carrying.
Instinct is stronger than fear, logic is greater than knowledge a
nd these pictures I took of Fable yesterday are WAY too cute not to share.
(multiple hair clips, as always, were her idea)
