We’re down to single digits in the countdown to Christmas and the birth of our second son. There is so much happening right now that I feel like we aren’t getting a chance to take it all in! We decided to use our TimeSpring account to send a message to the boys that they will receive when they’re older. It gave us a chance to sit and talk about what is happening right now in our lives and what we want to share with the boys.
It’s Oscars second Christmas, and he is really starting to understand and get excited. The baby is due any day now so our house is very busy! Life is about to get a lot more hectic and exciting. The TimeSpring app is perfect because it lets us send photos and messages to the kids at the touch of a button. We can choose the date they receive the message. We’ve written about TimeSpring before here. It really is a great app and at this time of year its lovely to tap into that nostalgic warm feeling. It feels like you’re sending a Christmas card to the future.
A Christmas Message to the boys
Everything is changing so quickly now and being able to take a moment to document some of it all and send it to the boys is really special. This type of communication is brilliant and the app is so easy to use. The time-released message will be sent to the kids when they are about 18 and 16 years old. At this time of year where everything is family central the value of receiving a message from a loved one is immense. I would love to have received a message from my grandparents or anyone who has passed. It is a beautiful sentiment and I can’t wait to make it a yearly tradition.
