I shot this video last week during a late afternoon trip to the pet store. We had an hour before dinner and needed a little excitement to pull us through the witching hour. The kiddos had a blast, especially R. He really loved that dog behind the glass. We asked the employees to get him out and let us pet him in the play area, but his energy was a bit more intimidating to the children once he was out from behind the glass. They were all shrieking within a few seconds.
Watching this video reminds me that the very 3 year old energy that absolutely wears me out is truly a precious treasure. Watching their delight as they explore the world is priceless. Those giggles are sweet music to my ears. I wonder if I concentrate hard enough I can hear this in my heart even when they are whining?
As a side note, I got my flip video camera for Mother's Day and I highly recommend it. I have a more traditional Sony video camera that provides better quality for momentous occasions, but for the everyday life stuff, this is perfect. I keep it in my purse all the time and have captured some priceless moments as a result. It is EASY, small, convenient and inexpensive. For $99, it just cannot be beat. I really dig mine and wanted to pass it on.
