Across the country many children have recently experienced their first day at school, a moment that according to new research is one of the most videoed family milestones.
According to the survey of UK parents, the landmark first day at school comes second only to birthdays in the poll of memorable family moments.
The research, which surveyed over 600 parent bloggers, also revealed that parents regret not filming more home videos during the early years. Around two out of five of those surveyed missed filming their child’s first word and first step. Parents also wished they could turn back time and relive everyday adventures such as their children playing dressing up and playing with siblings and friends.
When it comes to their own childhood experiences, many mothers wished their escapades could be shared with their children, despite some being embarrassing.
Mums in the survey revealed the memories they would like to revisit include their school prom, first kiss and spending time with their grandparents. Some mothers even wished they had a chance to be a fly on the wall at their child’s birth.
