Reminiscing...sort of...

I guess I can't really call it reminiscing if I don't remember the event.  :)  But my parents remember, so that works.  My sister pulled out one of our home videos today, and it was the one that focused specifically on me.  My parents had a separate video for each of the kids as we were growing up, and they made a special effort to take videos of each child's individual antics, so we each have our own video documenting the first few years of our lives.  Today, my sister picked mine to watch.  I couldn't believe that the adorable baby, toddler, two-year-old, and three-year-old on the screen was me.  I had a ball watching myself commando crawling, haphazardly singing children's songs, conducting songs for family home evening (I was only two, but I was actually on the beat! even if I didn't know the right pattern :)), "playing" the piano, jumping on the trampoline, and riding my big wheel.  I think working at a daycare has made my affinity for children ages birth to three that much stronger, though of course I always enjoy watching my siblings and I during those early years.  What a fun family activity!
