So, I mentioned in a previous post that Ellen has been having trouble driving in the car at night. This really doesn’t work for our lives as we need to commute two-ish hours to see our families on weekends and holidays. So, we had to get creative.
The camera focuses on the clock in a car. Two parents can be heard singing The Itsy Bitsy Spider over and over and over and over….in the background. In between rounds, a baby can be heard screaming bloody murder. Cut to mom. She has a brilliant idea! She grabs dad’s iphone and hits record. The parents continue to sing the song. Bam. Recorded. Mom strategically places iphone above baby’s head and baby is none the wiser. Parents breathe a sigh of relief. Tagline: What creative uses have you found for your iphone?
Brilliant, right? The best ideas come from experience, ya know.
Anyway, The Itsy Bitsy Spider has become somewhat of a hero in our house as of late. I really should buy him something nice for Christmas. I think I’ll give him his fifteen minutes (or 3:33) of fame on my blog. Ellen loves this video, and I really do too!
What creative ways have you found to keep your kids from crying themselves into a frenzy? Tell me in the comment section below.
