My Mom is amazing. Now that I am a mother of three-just like her-I appreciate everything she did. Mom made us dinner and never let us know that she hated cooking. She stayed up late helping us with our science fair projects that we had forgotten to tell her about when they were assigned three weeks before. She was there for all of our first soccer goals and she was there to hug us when we had the occasional bike crash.
Since we’ve had kids, what we got Mom for Mother’s Day has changed dramatically. First it was a card and flowers, or a card and a lunch date. Now, it’s all about the grandkids! For the last 7 years she’s received something with either a kid picture or handprint on it! Their house is like a museum devoted to our kids. This year, I’ve found something along the same lines, but different. It’s going to make Mom ecstatic! It’s a highlights video from Yourkidvid!
The creative editors at Yourkidvid are able to tell a story in just a few minutes. They take movies from your cell phone, GoPro or another device and then the magic happens! The editors craft a video using graphics and music specially selected for your movie. They put pieces together to create a highlight reel of your life! They send you a link and you can forward it to your friends and family right away. You can also upload it to your blog or share on social media sites. This is something that you can save to your computer or even your phone and watch it over and over-reliving those memories.
Check out the Yourkidvid inspiration page. I loved watching the little kids spelling their names, flying around in capes and all of their sweet laughter! Imagine the special Mom in your life watching her kids or grandkids in all of the best moments captured on video!
My Mom lives two states away and misses some of the best moments in our kids’ lives unfortunately. Giving her a Yourkidvid video will be the best Mother’s Day gift we could give her!
This year our oldest played in a softball league for the first time. Just last night I captured her amazing outfield catch along with that big, bright smile! Our shy, sweet middle child will be graduating preschool. I want her to see him walking across the stage to get his “diploma” in the graduation cap he made from construction paper. Our youngest’s personality blossomed with a bang this year. She is an opinionated little adult in a tiny body. Just about anything she says would make Grandma’s day! I can’t wait to make this video for Mom!
