Video Spy

My son got an iPod touch for his birthday.  Not that he needs such a gizmo, but my husband decided to make his birthday extra special because of the chaos of the move (which happens in exactly one week. Can you believe it?).

Anyway, the thing has video-making capabilities. 

While I was going around the house cleaning, packing, and arguing with my daughter about whether or not she could have a sleepover with one of her friends, my boy followed.  I wasn't exactly paying much attention, because I was preoccupied with the above-mentioned things.

Two hours later, he tapped me on the shoulder.  "Mama, do you want to see a video?"

"Sure, Bubba."

Guess what it was?  A video of me!

"Bubba, what the heck?" I said, completely mortified.

He laughed.  "I'm a super-sneaky spy!"

Yeah, he is.  And if he keeps it up, I'm going to have to be a super-sneaky Mama and take away his new toy!

  1. Just don't let him learn how to post it to Youtube.

    Good luck with the move as you go to my old home state, Georgia. I still visit my sister in Atlanta and we've been to Turner Field for baseball. I do like Atlanta. Great antique stores there as well.

    1. Thanks. I wish I had a magic wand to make everything pack, appear at our new house, and unpack!

  6. Congratulations on the move! Now you can get the hardest part over with. I'm sure you'll be happy to put all the moving stresses behind you.
    Mamas should get a heads up on being a super-sneaky spy! So funny that Bubba was being a spy. )

  7. Wow, you're moving in one week? That's so soon!

    And LOL at Bubba's super-sneaky spy ways. Maybe he'll grow up as one of the paparazzi someday... :P

  12. Tell him no shots allowed when you are angry or in a state of partial undress, and he absolutely is not allowed to follow you into the bathroom.

    Love,

  13. Oh,damn! Yes, my daughter did something similar. I am somewhere online drumming in a car. I was kinda mortified that she posted it. I wasn't driving, but geesh I was kinda mortified. I do not drum anymore in my vehicle, if she is in it. Yikes-it is a scary world! I hope the move goes well!

    1. Nice daughter! I guess we really have to behave, because you never know when our offspring will be following us with a video camera!
