The way I saw it....

...I had 4 options:


a) laugh at them


b) cry with them


c) do a very loud and crazy dance just to catch them off guard, and have a moment of silence


d) get the camera when option c didn't work.


(I don't blame you if you don't watch the whole thing...) :)

This was FANTASTIC. I think I have watched it 4 times now... and giggled the whole time. Which one did you do... a, b, or c?

Andrea Hydeen said...

I started with a. then went to c to prevent b, and ended with d. :)

I am so sorry Andrea, I have to say that I chose to laugh. You will have to save this forever and ever so that when they get older you can show them. What chaos, but I bet you're doing a GREAT job. You're such a GREAT mommy!!! Have a good day. ~Kim D.

I love your new blog Andrea. Many days I think about how we don't know each others kids and I don't get to see you all, this is so sad for me. But this blog will help me get a little taste of the joy in your life and it will give me joy to hear about it. :)This video is crazy (and I laughed) I don't doubt its a one time occurance. You are an amazing mom! And your kids are beautiful, even in the midst of many tears. :)

OH ANDREA!! I had to laugh because this is VERY COMMON in our household! It's so frustrating and challenging when things like this happen. Your a great mom! LOVE YOU SO MUCH!

This is so funny! I've had so many moments where I just had to bust out laughing!

You crack me up!

I laughed hysterically through the whole thing. You should really send this to every state's sex ed program and offer it for public use. BEST birth control for teenagers I could think of!! Are you REALLY ready for this?!?!? LOL... you are amazing Andrea- I could just see you standing there with the video camera in the midst of it all... ;)

Oh my goodness, that was so funny! I was practically rolling on the floor.

You are a much "stronger" mommy than I am. I would have done b not by choice, but I would have done it anyway.

Oh dear! Is this what the road ahead looks like?! I think it is great that you recorded that moment (or did it last a bit longer?!). Some day you may wish it back! My mom often teases that it was easier when we were little and I think there might be a bit of truth in that!
