Crazy Mommy

This afternoon my husband was setting up our new webcam for Skype. Many of you had suggested to me that it would be a great way for me to stay in touch with Angel Girl and the rest of my family in the states. Thank you.

Sweet Bear was sitting in her Papa’s lap watching her image on the computer and I was being lazy laying on our futon in the background. I could see myself in the background of the image on the computer screen and so I thought it would be fun to be silly and make Sweet Bear laugh. I had no idea that Mr. Pie was recording! I should have known better.

Oh, well. We all laughed at how silly I was and decided to share it with everyone else here. By the way, as we were replaying it trying to figure out how to get the video on Dailymotion, Sweet Bear and Petite Clown made us replay it over and over. It was just too funny. Each time I am sneaking up behind Papa and Sweet Bear in the video, Sweet Bear would forget that I was right beside her holding Boy Blue, and turn to catch me (the me in the video) giggling in anticipation. It was too cute.

    We just loved your little video! Thanks for sharing the silly side of you with us!

    So glad that you finally got a webcam and Skype…It’s going to bring you closer to Angel Girl and the rest of your family in the States :D

    Have a nice weekend Pumpkin et la petite famille!

    hey pumpkin, the video won’t play for me, do you have any idea why? when i press play, nothing happens. any ideas? i want to see it too!!!

    Nevermind, I figured it out – it was my anti-virus program that was blocking the dailymotion site. Cute video!

    My mother is very happy that I have the webcam. We spent two hours today playing on it with her. She could only see us and hear me on the phone because she does not have a webcam. She is going today to get her one so we can see her. Thanks everyone for the suggestion. I just have to get Angel Girls father to buy one too. Wish me luck.

    So cool….I’d love to do that too – get my boys on the Net for my family to see…how did you do it?

    PS – you’re a nutter, you are!…:-)

    You are right about my being a nutter! I am nutty. :)
    I am silly a lot with my children and my husband will scold me for getting the kids too excited. I think we live only once and we should play and have fun. ;)
    My husband recorded us using the webcam and then he put it on Dailymotion (which is free) for me. You can also email video through most email providers I believe. It was a little complicated to put it on Dailymotion but easy once we figured it out. If you need help just email me and I will ask my husband what the heck he did exactly and pass it on to you.

    I am glad your enjoying this. We have lots of fun using ours with my parents, and the fact that the connection is free via Skype is even better, you can spend as long as you like without worrying that it is going to cost a fortune !

    You must persuade your daughter to get one, it would be great to see her all the time. Leon even shows my parents his homework and pictures he’s done, my Mum and dad feel so invloved in his everyday life, it’s great

    That was fun! But I’m amazed that whilst Mummy jumps around and acts silly; whilst baby giggles and looks at Daddy; Daddy’s head remains so still (except for that early little toss), with only a blink or a meeting of lips to let us know his image isn’t frozen !!!

    (Does that make sense?)

  • Alison February 19, 2006, 4:37 pm

    Ahhh! I can’t view it here at my friend’s house. It’ll have to wait until I get home tomorrow.

    I love the still, though!

    Kerry,
    It’s because Daddy knew he was recording Mommy while she was unaware and acting like a big silly clown for Sweet Bear :)
    He is the devil!

    Pauline,
    I talked to my daughter last night and she told me that her stepmother has downloaded Skype and will go get a webcam soon. I don’t know if it will be before the next few weeks or so but I am very very very excited. I miss seeing her so much. Angel Girl is happy to be able to see her brother and sisters. And when she is here in France she misses her sister in America very much. It is going to be nice for her because she hates missing her sisters grow bigger.
