tl;dr I’m leaving a note for my future kids, in case they discover my internet presence decades from now

What if this post still existed like 10–20 years from now and that (assuming I have a family) my future kids will one day stumble across my tidbits? Especially with the Internet becoming so necessary in our lives, I really don’t think this is that far-fetched of an idea, right?

That being said, I’m pretty sure they’d want to know what I was like when I was younger and that they’d stalk me after discovering this “new source of exclusive information” about their mom. Just in case this legit happens, I want to be prepared….

“But how can you prepare for something like this, Steph??”

I honestly have no clue…But at the very least, I’m writing these future kids of mine a note to discover.

*********************
Hey kids! As much as I’d like to call you all by name, I haven’t named any of you yet ‪#‎sorrynotsorry‬. Just to paint a picture, it’s the summer of 2016 and I’m working for a NYC nonprofit and volunteering for a rural development organization! I’m 25 years old.

I hope you’re enjoying all the crazy and weird stuff I posted on the internet from years ago! Even though you might have thought that you had the upper hand on your mom, know that I already saw this coming and am already one step ahead of you! Bwhahaha!

In all seriousness, if you come across this message one day, PLEASE TELL ME! I won’t be mad at all. If you tell me you saw this and show it to me, I’ll give you a surprise. It’ll be something super cool, I promise! I don’t know what it is yet, since I have no idea what the future will be like, but know that I’ll think of something by the time you read this.

Anyway, I have to go to sleep now, but know that I love you all, even years before I’ve met you. Work hard in life and always be kind to people.

- Your mom (before she was a mom)

P.S. Clean your room.

And there you have it! Now my kids will know I saw this coming miles away. Fingers crossed I randomly get to hear about this one day, years after 2016…I love weird time capsule kind of things.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
