Kids love it... set a tone... were in!
Dinner is taking a little longer to prepare than expected.
Both boys still need to do homework (don't even get me started on that.)
The kitchen is a disaster.
Couldn't find the movie I wanted to rent (Back to the Future, settled for Ghost Busters with a thumbs down from the peanut gallery.)
We will have movie night.
What's a mom to do? Divide and conquer. Boys... homework. Mom... kitchen. Baby Girl... pjs
I decide to go for something on TV... NOTHING... it's a wasteland. I hit the DVD cupboard and see Kung Fu Panda... jack pot!
Kids, darling husband.... Kids, darling husband... Kids, darling husband... EVERYONE TO THE GREEN ROOM!
With eyes rolling, sighs and general disdain... everyone appears. I begin the movie. More eyes rolling and signs.
LISTEN... WE ARE GOING TO WATCH THIS MOVIE TOGETHER AND WE WILL LIKE IT!
5 minutes in... all eyes on the screen. Snuggles happening. Satisfaction from everyone in the room.
I think we've found our new tradition (although somebody needs to be a little more prepared with the movie selection.)
