#MomTip: Email Your Kids

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Recently I shared a #mom-tip on my Insta-stories about my weekly emails to Luna, and several mommies loved the idea.  I know there are so many great tips out there, but if you are like me, I need tips to actually follow-through on the tips. Ha! I may not be the mom who scrapbooks or prints off my gazillion iPhone photos, but I am becoming a darn good email historian.  

Here's what you gotta do:

*Create an email account for your child. Choose an email that will transcend so that they can use the email account when they are old enough.  

*Pass the email address along to grandparents and aunts/uncles.  My dad emails Luna too and I think it's the cutest thing. 

*Schedule an ongoing weekly reminder.  I have my reminder set for every Sunday evening. 

*Write them about the good, bad and everything in between.  
*Send them some of the photos that didn't make it on your Instagram.

*Besides the weekly email, send random emails too. When they do something totally funny or crazy.  
*My final suggestion *drumroll please* scan handwritten letters, notes and tidbits and email those as well.  If you don't want to hassle with a scanner, use the Evernote app.

Okay, like I said above, I know there are a million tips out there on what we should do and not do.  Don't stress out over this.  The good thing is you can email as little or as much as you want right from your phone! I am wordy so this works for me.  

Hope this tip helps!
