This week we had our first family movie night. Most things went as expected. Miriam asked questions through the entire movie. Vivian sat still for about 15 minutes of the hour and a half. But...Daddy fell asleep instead of Mommy! Good thing Vivian was there to crawl all over him and wake him up. No rest for the weary.
We made caramel corn together.
The popcorn was approved for consumption.
Then into the living room, settled onto a blanket (which will hopefully catch the popcorn mess), and ready to begin The Lion King.
Have you seen this movie recently? It's so good. And so confusing for a two year old. Why did Scar hurt the Daddy Lion? Who's going to take care of Simba if he runs away? Why is Simba mean to Scar? Who is the new baby at the end of the movie? Keep those answers simple. That's our motto.
Fun for the whole family. Now that's joyful!
