I wish I knew more mothers who hike, camp, climb, and travel with their babies. Real-life friends are the best (swap belays between breastfeeding, anyone?), but even stories from the virtual world could be a source of learning, solidarity, and connection.
So I'm going to share just a little. From my perspective only - not speaking for my daughter. Using one of her nicknames, "Kick-Kick" or KK, instead of her real name. Adding a watermark to any photo in which she appears, so the photo can't be re- or misappropriated.
Most importantly, remembering that I am a parent in real-time for my daughter, not for this blog, or for an online photo album, or for social media.
(Though I will always believe you can never have too many baby pictures!)
