I was recently part of a contest that required I make a home movie reviewing a toy. Although I didn’t win, I had a great time making the video and, more importantly, so did C. All week he’s been asking to see the footage and he cracks up watching himself on playback, in part because of the fast and slow motion effects and in part because he just thinks he’s a funny guy.
That got me to thinking about what great boredom busters cameras are (both the photo and video varieties). I’m definitely whipping one out the next time it’s raining and C’s going stir crazy. I’m already writing a list in my mind of stuff C would enjoy watching himself do – dancing, making silly faces, counting, ABCs, singing songs, and on and on.
|The first photo C ever took all on his own – a definite keepsake|
