Homework: Online Time Capsule

Alright Bad Mommys. Ready for some more homework?

The idea is to encapsulate your child’s/children’s life at this moment with words, pictures, and if your really ambitious, video.

Following, is a guide by which you can use to collect your data.

(Here comes the overly ambitious part)
THEN, the plan is in 20 years, April 1, 2028, we will all come back to this blog, reopen our time capsules with our children (or e-mail it to them), and write a post describing the event.

I really wish we could do this (Yahoo Digital Time Capsule). Maybe in the next 20 years, I'll find a way to do it!

GUIDE:

Today you are ______ (age).

At this exact moment, you are ______________ (what they are doing).

These days, you like to wear, or I like you to wear (for the mommy with teeny tinys) this:

Your favorite t.v. show(s) or movie is this:

You love to do this:_______(activity (ies) : i.e. climbing on counters, riding your skateboard).

You say this a lot: _______________ (i.e. “mommy mommy mommy”, “screw this!).

Your favorite food these days:__________________(i.e. breast milk, pizza…or even breast milk and pizza for some!)

Your favorite character from a show or movie is this: ________________(i.e. Elmo, or Captain Jack Sparrow).

This is your favorite toy: ______________ (i.e. teething ring, skateboard).

I love you to death, but I really wish you would stop doing this:____________.

You're a great kid because of this:________________.

I'm amazed that you do this:_______________(i.e. talking, wake up before 11:00am)

I love when you do this:_______________.

Something I’m wearing these days that will probably make you laugh some day (or already does):_________________.

Something you are struggling with presently that I wish I could help you with:__________.

This is an article from a magazine or newspaper describing an event that happened today or around this time:

Feel free to do whatever you want to do to remember these moments. This is simply a guide and you can use some of it, all of it, or none of it!:-) It's your time capsule!

HAVE FUN!
