I’ve been dying to watch The Grinch this year with the boys. I had it all planned for movie night. I was really excited about it. I love this movie. Jim Carey does such an awesome job playing Mr. Grinch. My happy holiday cheer got squashed by my six year old. Boo! He doesn’t want to watch it. Mind you he has seen it before and liked it. Not only does he not want to watch it, he actually asked me to throw it away. What?!
I tried to pry and figure out just what he didn’t like about the movie. All I got is “I don’t like it. I don’t like the Grinch.” Now, I can’t imagine my child would be scared of it. I mean, he begged and begged and begged somemore to watch movies like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Pirates of the Carribbean. I think Orks and death eaters are 100 times more scary. Can he possibly be scared of the Grinch? Really?
He loves when his dad reads him the book with his Boris Karloff impression. I’m just so baffled. I want to enjoy one of my all time favorites with my guys, but he truly wants no part of it.
Do you have childhood favorites that your children want no part of? Can’t they just watch them and pretend to like them to make us happy? Booo hooo.
As all parents know, even pet parents, it is really difficult to get that perfect Christmas picture. You know the one where every is actually looking at the camera and smiling. This is my battle every year. I would LOVE to get a decent photo with all three kids and the two dogs. It’s IMPOSSIBLE. After many, many, many takes…I’m settling with this one.
Ordered before Christmas…I call that a success seeing I’ve had years where they were mailed out on Christmas Eve.
Mondays are usually tough in general. Mondays after a holiday break, well they can be brutal. We had a few after school meltdowns but we made it through. They’re in bed and I’m positive that one out of three is sound asleep. I figured I would take the opportunity to make Sam useful. This is where the Elf really works for Mama.
I can’t wait to see what they think about the little message that Sam left for them.
Naughty or Nice?
