I actually have two kids also,
Aspen - 3 yrs
Tristan - 6 yrs

Both would be very interested, especially if the exchange is once per week.

Keep me posted!!

Sign up my DD - Mary Elizabeth -- age 11 (going on 16) --

I might suggest putting her with another 11 y.o. or a 12-y.o.
She probably would not write anything that would interest an 8 or 9-y.o. She's at that "tween" stage, you know? Tween a youngster and a teen, tween a kid and becoming a young lady...

Lord help me!

Another suggestion: For sisters who have more than one, or numerous children -- since they all have to post under mom's nickname, etc., we should probably devise a way they can individualize themselves on the posts -- like assign icons to each one or something??? Have a set of icons accessible only for the kids posts should work. They can pic which one they want to use and would be more easily identifiable to their pals that way.

What do you think??
