Time to get my Mom on video……hear me out and you might join me…

I consider myself pretty strategic and creative but this time I made a huge mistake. Since my dad’s memory isn’t as sharp as I would like it to be it is hard to take video of him for a number of reasons. My mom is a different story, she is sharp, funny (although most of the time isn’t trying to be), has a good memory, and most of all likes to talk.

Here is the idea – moving forward every time I see my mom I will take very short (45 seconds) videos of her while I ask her questions. A sample of some of the questions:

  • Tell me about the first time you met dad?
  • Describe your wedding?
  • What is the funniest experience you had with your brother?
  • Did you enjoy nursing school?
  • How was the African safari you went on?
  • Was I a difficult child growing up?

The idea is to save those videos and share them with my kids and their kids down the road.

  • What do you think of the idea?
  • Are you already doing this?
  • Will you join me moving forward?
  • I look forward to reading your comments.

    P.S. I am a fool for NOT starting this sooner!
