Preserve Your Memories through the OneDay Video App: Enter to Win a $500 Target Gift Card

When I was little, my dad used to have regular interviews with us.  He used them to check in with us to see how we were doing, to find out if anything was bothering us, and to give us some things that we needed to work on.
I wasn't usually a fan of these interviews, mainly because I always had things I was doing wrong that needed correcting.  :)
My dad used to record these interviews on audio tapes. Yes, tapes.  I'm old.  I doubt we have many of those interviews today- but I know we re-discovered one that gave my family a new catch-phrase to tease me with.  We found a recording where I was complaining about all the things that went wrong in my day.  I fell of the sled and got wet.  Someone got mad at me.  
"It was a most hard day".
Yep- I still get that one quoted back to me.  Often.
Still, I'm glad to have a little piece of my childhood preserved.  My parents love hearing my tiny little girl voice, and remembering things that happened back then.

Recently I discovered this awesome app available in the App Store called OneDay.  It's Free! (for now) 
The premise is simple:  Download the app, pick a topic, and interview your child.  There are a bunch of different themes, such as
Back to School
My Favorites
All About Me
Each story set  has 10 questions in it, allowing you to record your kids answering each, and the app instantly stitches all the videos together into a high quality movie with music, allowing you to share with family and friends via social media, text, or email. It is currently free, but won't be for long!
Create an account, then upload your video to share or download it somewhere to keep it in your files.  
What a great way to remember the simple things about your children!  We say we will remember the small things, but the truth is that we won't.  Time will wash them away as the waves do footprints on the beach.  As my kids are growing up and away from me, I know I will treasure these videos for years to come.

    1. I know- my kids aren't technically "little" anymore but when they're grown up they'll still seem little in these videos! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. That is so neat that your dad did that! This is something I want to do with my little one (once he can talk!) so I will have to keep this app in mind.

  6. I love that concept! Makes me wish my kid would finally start talking instead of just grunting his orders at me :)
