3 Month Old’s Digital Footprint

Our new little baby is not even 3 months old and she already has a pretty good size digital foot print.


She has been tagged in a crazy number of photos on Facebook. Through Twitter, again, photos of her as attachments or through Instagram have been added. Some friends are still pushing for her to have her own Twitter account, ha ha, but in a way that is still a way she has been referred to online. I created an email account for our little gal right after she was born, as well. That was a great decision, and I am glad I did so. I have been able to send her news about many milestone updates and just random messages for future her to read.
Sometimes I wonder if it was my right to share these pictures of her. I think because social media is such a norm it is probably not a big deal, and she might not know any different. But, when she’s a teenager, will cute, chubby cheek pictures all over the internet of her be an issue? I really don’t know. And, it is not possible to truly remove them forever. So, when do I stop sharing? How do I balance out the fun of sharing  about our new exciting addition and her right to privacy?
First post from this new mom… Many drafts started. Will I ever have time to finish anything again? Guess that is another topic for another day.

We are Taking the Challenge


Clicking through twitter just after the new year kicked in I came across a tweet about the 100 push-up challenge. Well, I was feeling rather frumpy, weak, and of course lazy as most do after the week of feasting has finished.

Well, I chatted to my husband about it and he said he was up for the challenge since he was feeling similar. We have since signed up for the challenge.

Now, I say signed up like we paid money, or committed in some way, but no. We simply decided why not. It wasn’t a New Year’s resolution or anything like that. Just feels like, why not?

So here is the tweet that started it:

Here is the website that explains how to do a proper push-up, sit-up, squat, etc. Also, the first 6 weeks to getting you on your way to completing the challenge are all laid out as well. http://www.hundredpushups.com/challenge.html
Are you up for the challenge?
We are starting week two next week and already I feel an improvement. We are keeping track of our progress and growth on a google spreadsheet which I will post later.
Thank you,  good luck and you can do it too!
Check in with your doctor and/or parents. I did have some rather sore students after their first day as well.
