Do you remember how I asked for words to say with my Canadian “accent”? It seemed like a fun idea at the time but I spent the next few days wondering what I had gotten myself into. I mean, I’m apparently a “hand talker” and I have seen myself via that lovely picture-in-picture feature on Skype. WHAT WAS I THINKING?
However. I’m one who follows through on things, so I knew that I’d have to do it. I contemplated filming it with the kids around so as to distract you with their cuteness. Knowing my kids (and myself) all too well, I realized that would be a recipe for disaster. They’d test my patience and then there would be video footage of me being Mommy Of The Year as I lost my temper.
I had a wedding shoot on Sunday afternoon (photos to follow…some day) and in order to let me get ready for it, Matthew took the kids to church and left me at home. Once all of my gear was ready and packed, I sat down to make the stupid video. It took me five tries because my point-and-shoot only takes one-minute-long clips.
ANYWAY, here it is.
See? No accent. I may talk a mile a minute and sound like I sucked on helium before recording it, but I do not have an accent.
