A Journal for My Son

This question has little to do with personal finance, but I would like to hear from anyone with suggestions. I’d like to begin writing a journal for my son. While I’m with him I think of all sorts of things that I want to write down. Just various thoughts and moments I want to capture as he grows.

I started a blog while I was pregnant, and wrote at least once a week, but I’ve only blogged once in the three months since he was born. It seems that each time I attempt to type up my thoughts my mind goes blank and I can’t quite find the words to express my thoughts and emotions.

Perhaps I get writer’s block because I want this to be a journal that he can read when he gets older. Maybe I’m placing too much thought into exactly what I want to say. I’m not exactly sure what the issue is but I’m saddened that I’ve only captured one post in the past three months.

I am photographing and videotaping my son a few times a week, but I really want to write about my time with him as well. Maybe I should give up on typing my thoughts and move to a paper journal? I’m really not sure.

If anyone has advice for me I’d love to hear it. Any and all suggestions are welcome.
