5 Things My Kid Hates that I Blogged About

By Lori Garcia |

I’m the mom of two boys, ages 4 and 9.

As of late, my 4-year-old relishes in blog fame while my 9-year-old is a harder sell. While Pokémon keeps my eldest far too busy to read my blog, I have to respect where he’s coming from. Long gone are the days of begging to be featured online. As my son grows and his stories become more his own, I’ll have to find a way to share my motherhood experience while honoring his request for privacy.

My son and I have now fallen into uncharted blog territories as we work to find a compromise. As he begins his journey to tweendom (where mom embarrassment rates at an all-time high), we’ve come up with a few blogging rules:

1. We will discuss blog topics that revolve solely around him (my rule).

2. I will not post embarrassing pictures or video of him, or pictures of his naked butt as a baby (his rule).

3. I can’t talk about his [omitted upon his request], or that time he [omitted upon his request], or the fact that he sometimes [omitted upon his request]. Wow, this kid is going to ruin my blogging career.

Since the past is the past, I’ve been given “permission” by my son to share the five posts he wishes were never published.

5 Things My Son Hates That I Blogged About

He's changing

When I wrote about the charming despair of living with a budding man-child, he thought it was pretty cool...until he changed his mind. His moody tendencies reaffirm he's indeed becoming a tween.

Has your kid objected to anything you’ve published?

    OMG too funny! My little guy is only 4, but he has no problem sharing what he feels! I guess it is a good thing, but sometimes I wonder where my little baby boy has gone and why is there this little version of a man standing in front of me instead. Good luck in finding an “approved” blogging topic from your son!

    Snooping is such a controversial thing. My parents said they never snooped, but I doubt I’ll ever be that wise – I’ll probably snoop everything! lol
