I was terrible at logging milestones for my kids. I can’t tell you when each took her first steps or which one’s teeth were first. I can tell you first words for one child – only because I tracked them as part of a college assignment.
At some time in their preschool years I began keeping a notebook with cute stories and funny things the kids said. This was dubbed “the funny book” and kids would pull stories out for “all about me” day at school, visits from out of town relatives, and to embarrass each other in front of friends.
This is the online, teenage years version of “the funny book”.
