Your Digital Footprints

To P1, P2 and P3,

I’ve just got back from BritMums Live 2015 and although the sessions I attended were great there’s one specific one that has left a bit of an imprint in my thoughts. It was about Your Child’s Digital Footprint.

Whilst sitting in there I actually thought I was disagreeing with the speakers and some of the other bloggers opinions. From what I was hearing it was felt that it was sort of unfair to write your child’s story when it’s not your story to tell.

I write this blog because I want you to be able to look back on your childhood, your lives, much easier than I have been able to. There’s the odd few photos that I use to trigger happy memories but I want you to be able to read what we were doing and what you were doing at certain ages.

I’m sorry if I perceive you to be little horrors. I’m sorry if this effects your futures as adults and women seeking jobs. It wasn’t intended to be like that.

I want to stay true to you. To my blog. To my diary. I want it to be filled with the good times and I definitely don’t want to blur out the bad times. I’ve slipped a little with documenting our daily lives or the big adventures you’ve all been having and I’m sorry for that. I’ve got caught up in the amazing perks of being a blogger which of course you are reaping the rewards too but it’s taken over.

BritMums Live has reminded me the purpose of this blog. My Life With Pink Princesses. You three beautiful girls that shape my world every day.

So although I initially disagree with the main focused topics I do agree with keeping your names a secret. Maybe one day that’ll change when it is your story to tell, maybe you’ll want your names published.

I love you all dearly and I hope you’ll be thankful and maybe proud of my blog when you’re older. 

Love Mummy x

Siblings 2021 – June

June has been quite the emotional rollercoaster. One moment I’m flying high above the clouds …


  1. I think you should continue to write about your children! Not only will it allow you to look back and recall the ups and downs in years to come, but they will see how you felt as a parent whilst they were growing up.

    One thing I love to do is get the kids invovled in the blog, writing articles and making videos. If they ever have anything to say, I will always let them express their opinion. I am sure your kids have input too and most certainly will as they get older.

    Keep it up!

    PS… Love your blog. Rachel X

      When they can write independently I’m thinking of letting them have their own weekly or monthly feature until they’re old enough to blog themselves if they wish to.

  2. I wholeheartedly agree – at the moment this is your story to tell!

  3. I absolutely love this post. It is really hard not t get caught up in everything else and forget the real reason we started isn’t it? I’m also amazed you’ve posted this so soon after arriving home from Brit Mums! Lovely to see you and P3 x
