My Two Year Old Has a Blog

By Danielle |

Following in Mommy's Footsteps

So a while back Ben was asking me for his own blog. Because what two year old doesn’t need their own blog right?

Well I thought it would be a cute idea to give him one… well at least a small tab on my own website where I could post pictures, and of course add commentary partially from him — with my own little touch right?

But no sooner than I started it, I got a couple not so nice reactions.

“What kind of parent gives a toddler a blog?”

“Who would even read that?”

“What a stupid idea!”

Well I guess can be thankful for those who are supportive in Ben and I’s newest venture right?

The way I look at it is — he is only two and if he has hopes and dreams at this age, even if it is a stupid blog which he may not fully understand, I am not going to put a damper on it.

It is another way for him to use a creative outlet.

While he may not fully understand the concept of a blog, he knows that mommy does it — and it is my job and I think it is really neat that he wants to join in.

Wouldn’t you?

Do your kids take an interest in your job?

    I think if Audrey cared, I would make her a tab on mine too. And it would be a place for her cute stories, or the photos she takes (she does have her own camera).

    What a great way to encourage creativity! I hope those negative reactions were not shared in front of your son – don’t let others crush his spirit!!

    I agree Ariana tries to type with me while I play cartoons for her on my laptop she also tries to use the mouse and shes just over a year old. I think its funny when I ask her if she wants to watch cartoons with mommy and she pipes in with “Toons? ok Toons” then sits up on my pillow on the bed reaches for the mouse hits the ctrl button and tries to type in my password before I can sit her on my lap and pick a cartoon for her. She does love to shop at wal-mart where I stock shelves, but I’m hoping she’ll never have to be a wal-mart stockman like me. Of course I realize everyone has to start somewhere I just hope her start is better than that.
