As part of my Christmas present this year, my dad transferred all of our family video from when the kid was born to present onto DVD. What a great gift. I couldn’t wait to start watching them.
So, on Christmas morning after we opened our gifts and had our traditional Christmas breakfast, DH, the kid, my parents, my mother-in-law and I sat down to watch a couple of them before the day got too crazy. It was a very relaxing morning and I was relishing every moment. Until we got about 12 minutes into Video #3.
Let me set the stage: It’s Christmas 2000. The kid is 2 1/2 years old. She is coming down the stairs and my husband is capturing her reaction to all the presents Santa left for her under the tree. Priceless.
Allow me to fast forward…
ME: Ok, let’s open the last one over here (crackling of ripping paper). Do you know what it is?
ME: It’s your very own vanity table so that when mommy is putting on her makeup you can put on yours! See, it’s got a curling iron, a blow job, make up, a mirror that lights up….
Wait a minute, back up the truck. Did I say…”Blow JOB???” Yup, leave it to me to turn our G-Rated family video into an X-Rated one. All I wanted to do was run into the middle of the road and pray for an 18 wheeler to put me out of my misery.
The funny part is, DH even laughed in the video and told me what I said. I completely denied it. His response was that he had it on video. Quite unfortunate for me, I never checked.
What did I learn from this? Don’t allow extended family to watch old video without pre-screening them first. I found out the hard way…
