Old Home Movies

I've been watching some old home movies lately, trying to label them and, you know, be organized. Here are some things I've noticed:

* I wore the same shirt to my son's 8th and 12th birthday parties.

* Short hair is not for me.

* When taping children's sports activities, it's advisable to tape a few moments here and there, rather than the whole, long, entire game. Also, having a steady hand is a plus in a videographer.

* Someone (who shall not be named in this post) taped over my oldest son's first moments of life with an episode of Ellen (the TV show, not the talk show. Like it matters. Either way, I'm completely bitter.).

* My house is always tidy in the videos where company is over for a birthday party, and messy in the videos where I'm just taping the kids playing, as it were, in their natural habitat.

Are you feeling better? Hopefully those home movies are helping you get over the flu. PS: Did you get a flu shot this year?

Hahahaha! Totally agree about taping only parts of games/recitals/things. My parents would tape the entire soccer game or piano recital and it was TORTURE to watch! I learned that early on from them (;


"natural habitat"... haha! So funny
And by the way although I cracked up about the Ellen episode- I feel horrible for you! That's terrible!

I did get a flu shot, my whole family did. I don't think I've had the flu, but I have had mastitis twice, strep throat, and a suspected case of food poisoning from my first post-baby date night. Bad luck!
