Story time video

Every night I try to do "story time" with the kids. With each child it's evolved as they grow. With Connor, recently we have been doing stories with cars and jails. Sometimes we'll play video games or read books.

Paige prefers to use her imagination and play pretend games or with her stuffed animals. Her favorites right now are "Mommy and Daddy", Princess, and Teacher. I have a hands free camera I bought for my competitions and the other day I had the bright idea to wear it during story time. It's nice since it's completely hands free and Paige doesn't really notice it's there so she acts completely normally. When I first put it on she asked what it was and I just told her it helps me to hear better and after that she didn't pay attention to it at all.

I've done a couple videos with it. The first night's video was priceless. Paige was in a great mood and we had a lot of fun together. Unfortunately I didn't have enough light and when we were in the play room the video's very dark and it's hard to see anything. There were a few parts that came out. In her bedroom, the lighting was brighter and she really liked a story we made up together and acted out with her stuffed animals. I cropped it out of the big video for the blog.
