Blinkbuggy Tips: Kids “Firsts”! – Capturing Milestones

Hello again Blinkbuggy-ers!

Our kids have so many “firsts” in their lives – first crawl, first word, first step…It’s hard to keep up sometimes.  Once they really start walking and talking, their “firsts” just seem to pile up like an avalanche.  As parents, we also have our “firsts”, like that first time, before going out to pick up milk, you put on that shirt with the spit-up stain on it, looked at it, shrugged your shoulders and went out anyway  (Admit it, we’ve all done it).

Blinkbuggy Tips: Capturing Your Children’s Artwork

Hello again Blinkbuggy-ers,

If you’re anything like us, you’ve got piles of the kids’ artwork floating around the joint.  Then every few months, when you finally can’t take the hoarding anymore, you stare helplessly at these piles faced with a dilemma, and perhaps a little guilt: “How can I possibly store all of these “masterpieces” for all time yet how can I possibly throw them out?!  After all, isn’t there something special and distinct between that yellow splotch and that one over there?”

We faced the same dilemma and would like to offer a possible solution using Blinkbuggy.   Simply scan the masterpiece(s) to an image file (e.g. jpeg) and load it up to Blinkbuggy as you would any other picture.   Now you can safely, and without guilt, put the originals in the storage of your choice (e.g. closet, safe…garbage – admit it, they’re not ALL great).

Blinkbuggy Tips: The things kids say! – capturing “Quotes”

Hello again Blinkbuggy-ers!

Have you ever found yourself trying to remember that really funny thing your kid(s) said to you earlier and kicking yourself for not writing it down somewhere?  We certainly did, not only as our kids started to talk but also when they got older and were really able to explore their new-found linguistic skills.  We’d scramble to find a pen and something, anything, to write on before that perfect, often hilarious, snippet slipped our minds.

The things our kids say are so fleeting and spontaneous that we often lose them in the chaos of our days and with them the richness they add when looking back on a particular time.  To help avoid this problem, Blinkbuggy was designed with a dedicated way to capture all of those amazing, brilliant things that spill out of those little mouths.
