I thought it would be fun to take a picture of my kids once a month, the same picture and pose, and then one day assemble all the photos into time-lapse view of them growing up. Of course I did not think of it until my daughter was too old, but it was still a good idea. In fact, someone has done something similar and brought it to YouTube. This video clip is different.
One dad decided to interview his daughter after the first day of school each year through high school. Nothing profound here, just a good idea and a sweet result.
Any parent will tell you - the years go by too fast. To parents of young ones my advice is simple, treasure and cherish the time you have with your children.
