Lucid Intent? Yes Lucid Technique: WBTB

I'm looking at a video that (dream) friends of mine took of their baby and small son. The baby's head is shaped like a lima bean, which strikes me as odd ... but does not make me lucid. The boy is patting their cat in the footage.
Suddenly a security device goes off outside of their house. We all go out and look at it -- it looks like a pocket protector the size of a Winnebago, and it's lying down flat on the ground. A large opening on the side is chevron shaped and has some purple trim on it. I seem to have dream knowledge that the way it works is that it videotapes the intruders and then begins shooting bullets at them.
We go back inside and look at the footage. A subtle shift has now occurred and the couple's two children are two young boys -- it shows them holding the front door shut as someone from outside shoots bullets through the door, which they are narrowly avoiding. But something about the video strikes me as being implausible, almost as if it was staged. I can't quite figure it out, though, even though it probably was a clue for me to become lucid.
I wake up and go right back to sleep, into another dream.
I have a long dream that I feel amazed at when I open my eyes and wake up again, but before I move I decide to close my eyes and see if I can remember more of it by going a little bit back into my memory of it.
But I have another dream. I eventually wake up from it abruptly and realize that having a new dream not only erased the memory of the dream I just had before, but it also somehow made me forget the new dream! So I'm left with nothing except for the dream from earlier in the night.
