At HuffPost, we're kicking off an exciting new project and we'd love you to participate! It's called "The Moment I Knew," and is a user-submitted video series where readers tell the stories of life-changing moments they have experienced. Each section of HuffPost has chosen a different theme -- whether it was the moment you knew you wanted to marry your spouse, the moment you knew your marriage was over, the moment you knew you loved college, or the moment you knew you were broke. You can also tell us about any other life-defining moment you'd like to share. The possibilities are endless!
Here on HuffPost Parents we've suggested that you tell us about "The Moment I Knew I Was Really A Parent". That doesn't mean the day the baby arrived. It could be the first time you heard yourself say, "Because I said so." It could be a funny story about being called so-and-so's mom, or the feeling of having to protect your child from something big.
It's really easy to contribute. Create your video using YouTube or Vimeo and send the link/URL of the video to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you create your video using your laptop or mobile phone and have a video file, please attach the file in an email to email@example.com. Your video submission is subject to our User Terms. Please make sure to include your full name with your video submission. Each video should be 30-60 seconds long, and should feature only you, speaking right into the camera telling your story. Please start your story with the words "The moment I knew..."
We can't wait to hear from you! And if you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
