Always have a video camera handy

With 3 kids there is something monumental going on at all times. It could be Sabreena cutting her own hair because it’s not looking the way it should, Shaun flying over the handlebars of his bike because his brakes failed or Shae drinking toilet water saying, “Mmmm good soup”. Unless we are armed with a video camera at all times we will miss a lot of things.

One thing we did miss recently was Shae completely being a toddler. Rob and I were away for a few hours and my parents were watching the children. Shaun and Shae were in the TV room; Shae has her back to Shaun, he doesn’t pay much attention to her anyway so she goes along doing what she was doing.
She goes up to show Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop her pretty new nails. She has painted them black with a giant permanent marker, skin and all. They panic, wash her up and then wonder where she got a marker. The utility room door is open, there is marker on the green leather sofa and on Shae’ s pants. The bulk of the ink washed off in the bath, by the next day there was just a faint reminder of her lovely artwork.

It doesn’t matter where kids are, home, friends, school or with the trusty grandparents kids WILL do something that is video camera worthy to be shared with EVERYONE and cherished for years to come, as well as used as embarrassing moments for their teen years.
