As we were sitting in the living room watching The Princess and the Frog, I found myself gazing lovingly at my children.
If you've been reading my blog for a while, that doesn't happen very often.
I'm usually looking at them wondering which asylum will accept them.
I startled myself today with all the love.
Here are my thoughts:
Hmmm...I wonder if I have a favorite.
He's kinda cute the way he's looking at the TV and shoving Frooze in his mouth.
But then there's her...she's smiling...no, beaming at the music in this movie.
This music is pretty good.
Oh look, there goes Matt. He's dancing, no bopping...so cute. Yes, he's my favorite.
Hold the phone...what is she doing? Is she conducting in rhythm to the music? Okay, that does it...she's definitely my favorite.
Oh good, it's the wedding scene...two frogs getting married...gross.
Wait...why is he crying? He doesn't want them to stop being frogs? He loves them as frogs? He doesn't want them to change? What a sweetie...he's my fave.
Oh geez, look at Hailey, she has tears of happiness in her eyes and her little hands are clasped at her chest like she's watching her very own wedding. That is too cute...she's my favorite.
Okay, movie's over. What the heck are we going to do now? Yes, let's play Memory...no, we've never played, but I'm sure this will go smoothly (yeah, right!).
What's that? Don't turn it off yet? You want to watch until the pictures go away? Okay...now you're my favorite...definitely.
What's she doing? Bringing her snack cup into the kitchen and putting it in the sink...I love her...she wins.
Crap...he's right behind her...who can I choose now?
Aw...look at them...on the rug, on their little tummies, faces in their hands, just waiting for me to get the game out. They're so excited.
I love the way they're helping me punch out the cards...what good helpers. Maybe I can't choose a favorite...maybe they're both my favorites.
Yes, I can have two favorites, right? Yes...I win.
