Moms everywhere, you are in for a treat and a laugh! With Mother's Day right around the corner, this little ditty comes at the perfect time. Kids, you know all about stop motion. In this video, I used stop motion to help illustrate my poem. I laughed my way through each frame. For those of you unfamiliar with stop motion animation, the technique uses single shot pictures tediously wound together to create a single continuous motion. When you watch the video below, you will understand what I mean. When I was a child, I remember drawing stick figures in various stages of animation on each single page of a top ring spiral note pad. By the last page, I was able to fan through the pad and see the stick figure come to life. That was old fashion stop motion. Thank goodness for IOS apps an a camera timer! My first attempt at stop motion can never compare to my favorite Claymation stop motion series, but it is now a family favorite. From one Mother to another, I wish mothers everywhere a very happy Mother's Day. Enjoy 1 minute and 50 seconds of motherhood summed up in silliness and wrapped up in love.
