It all began in March 2009 when famous Youtube star, Shaycarl decided to post a vlog everyday of his 29th year on his Shaytard channel. Well, a year has now turned into almost 2. The vlogs "star" him and his wife nicknamed Katilette (Mommytard), sons Sontard (7 years), Rocktard (5 Months), daughter Princesstard (5 years) and Babytard (3 years), who was recently featured on the cover of James Blunt's album "Some Kind of Trouble, and dog, Malachi. Shay and Katilette decided to not purposely call their children by their real names because of privacy, but they have slipped out every now and again, to whitch they dont make a big deal of. Shay and his family lived in Los Angles, CA for the bulk of the first year of the vlogs, but moved back to their home in Idaho for the birth of Rocktard, and have decided to stay there while Shay commutes to LA for his work on another Youtube channel, called "The Station".
