My children, bless their pure souls, are at the most affectionate stage with each other. They have been for a while. They get annoyed but so far, we have had no major war. Instead, they play so well, are polite to each other and watch out for each other all the time. And they say I love you all the time to me and Mr R.
I don’t really know if these moments will continue to infinity (I wish they would!) but just in case, they became two teenagers who can’t stand the sight of one another sometime in the future, I want to capture these lil’ interactions now and all of a sudden, I realised that a photograph is not enough. I want to record the moments that they play together, when he gives in to her, when one of them say something funny or off-kilter, when they laugh over the same thing, when they team up to get something from me and Mr R, when we spew all kinds of kisses and I love you’s to one another.
So what’s a girl to do?
And that is why I finally caved in and delve into videos! Maybe it will be the same for you – to capture these fleeting memories to remember them by, to hopefully one day bring them out when they’re having a cold war and say, look guys, what happened to these my two loving munchkins and hopefully not have them pull a face and go, “Get that thing away from me!”
