Why you should film/record your kids!
I have been told countless times I could make a comic book from the daily situations in my house. Yup, my house is a circus! With four kids under the age of three this is to be expected. Do I often get overwhelmed? Yes. Do I feel at times that I am a crazy lady? Oh definitely! But I am 100% honest when I say its all worth it to me. And I wish I had a recording of every moment!

Crazy moments make for good memories!
Today I finished cleaning the Living area, you know the kitchen, front room, and dinning space. And while sitting and nursing my baby the chickens decided once again they lived indoors! UGH! our chickens will often wait until our back door is open to make themselves feel at home. They enter our house and feed off of the left over crumbs from dinner. This is without question disgusting! And I will admit I feel a bit like a hillbilly when it happens. But out of all of this crazy it is a fun moment. I love that my beautiful boys love to chase them out and then continue to tell me how bad the chickens where for entering our home. Ha-Ha.
I should get to the point though, I wish I had recorded it! It will be something they don’t do for much longer, and I will have nothing to look back and remember this moment by!
Crazy kids make for good recordings!
My 3 year old son has learned the story of The Three Little Pigs and is now teaching his 2 year old brother. This makes for some great memories. He is now trying to learn Little Red Riding Hood because his Aunts and Uncles made a homeschooling video to put on YouTube and it has now become his favorite “movie” to watch. I will put the link below. Be sure to give it a watch if you are a home school mom, it is great for extra Curriculum if your little ones are interested in acting! 🙂
Recording your kids is necessary!
I am not trying to talk your ear off, but do want to make a point to let you all in on how important it is to film your kids. I was just telling my husband today that I need to be sure to film my son playing the 3 little pigs because I want to look back on it, and want him to as well. I never get more nostalgic then when I am watching the home videos my mom had of us growing up as kids. It is a piece of history, a memory to easily look back on, and a joy you will have when you have an empty nest. I only have four kids and am wishing I would film as much as I take pictures. It is my goal to up my game on filming my kids.
Feel free to subscribe to their channel and share, they make such cute videos!
I know that you can do about anything with your phone, but also think its a good idea to keep a camera with recording abilities in the home, so that your kids can do fun videos and such to look back on.
Up your filming game!
So to the parent looking to up their film recording game as well, I will challenge you. Every time you take a snap-shot of your beautiful children take a small video too, ( even if its only 30 seconds long.) You will come to find it is so worth it. And your kids will love and thank you for it when they have kids of their own.
Best of luck and much love,
