Clara’s quite the storyteller these days, and she loves when I record her tales so she can watch them back. Here are a few that I captured a few weeks ago for her.
- how they always start in a kingdom with a princess name (like “there once was a Kingdom named Jasmine”)
- how they frequently include skeletons
- how she thumbs through one of my books (as opposed to hers) while telling the story
- how she rests her face on her hand in the middle of that second video
Oh man, she cracks me up.
I’ll be the first to admit this video of Burger isn’t very exciting. But in so many ways it captures the way we see him everyday.
I was actually trying to take a picture of him, but accidentally had my phone on video mode. But I’m glad I took the clip because I’ve always wanted to capture what I call “Burger’s Wake-Up” routine. This isn’t all of it – there are multiple rounds of yawning, stretching to the front, stretching to the back, rigorous shakes, and, um, some licking – but in case I never get the whole bit on camera, at least I’ll have this. You know, so we’ll always remember that yawning is a full facial event for him.
