Sound of Music
I love my kids. I know that everyone would expect that statement to come from a mother, but I'm starting to really, really appreciate the people that P1 and P2 are becoming. If you've never been a parent, it's hard to explain what it's like to see all of your characteristics emerge in a fully functioning, independent human. Of course, there are aspects of myself (and the hubby) that I see which aren't as desirable...but, I also see their sense of humor and timing becoming more honed and mature. PDaddy had tons of meetings today (despite it being Spring Break) and the littler kids went to my parents for the day to play, so P1 and P2 and I watched the Sound of Music. Only...we made our own dialogue. It was like MST3K. We were rapid fire snarking the entire movie. For example: In the scene where the Von Trapps are hiding in the Abbey graveyard, a flashlight pans over the headstones and Lexi deadpans - "Jimmy Hoffa...Elvis...". And, in the scene where the children sing for their Uncle Max, Father, and the fiance, it turned into an American Idol parody.
I'm enjoying seeing what everyone is listening to on their iPods. :)
