My children think it is outrageously funny to subject me to movies that I deem stoopid! We will be watching a movie and I will say “this movie is so stooooopid”, and they will giggle, roll their eyes and giggle some more.
When it is movie night or they are bored with our limited selection, they will suggest that we go rent a movie. They will do more giggling and suggest any number of movies that will obtain some sort of reaction from myself. Here they are listed in no particular order…
- Kicking and Screaming
- Napoleon Dynamite~~although I did think it was funny~~
- Cats and Dogs
- Nacho Libre
- most, but not all animated movies~~although I do love Finding Nemo because if we were to change my name it would be Dori
- anything with Will Ferrel
Last night they asked if they could go rent a movie. They were bored. We had been discussing Pirates of the Caribbean so, I figured that they were going to get one of them.
I couldn’t have been so lucky! They brought home Flushed Away. A stooooooooopid animated movie. They handed me the movie and stood back, awaiting my reaction. I didn’t disappoint. So we watched it….all throughout the movie I would mutter “this is such a stooopid movie”. ~~ A few parts were cute, but not enough to reverse my “2 thumbs stooopid” rating. ~~ They giggled, rolled their eyes, giggled some more, and agreed with me….bad choice of movie.
Next time, “I” choose the movie. It will be Life is Beautiful for the boy, and a Rambo movie for the girl. That’ll teach them!
After said movie, the girl went and took her shower. No, she didn’t kick the faucet, but a full 1 liter bottle of shampoo fell on her foot. As I carried her to the couch, she whispered in the smallest voice “your my superhero”. This from the girl who maybe once every 2 months tells me she loves me voluntarily, this from the girl who was soooooo mad at me yesterday because I wouldn’t allow her to wear heels to church, this from my sweet baby….. ok, no Rambo for her.
How has your kiddo melted your heart recently?
