Playing mom continued... and done

I don't know how my mom does it! I was tired as can be and I didn't even have to run the business and I didn't wash any of the kids' clothes, just towels. There were just the four kids and they can all do everything for themselves. Maybe I'm just a weiner. Anyway, we went to Princess and the Frog on Monday night. Umm, so being the single girl that I am, I didn't take into consideration that fact that these kids go to bed around 9:30 or so. The movie started at 8:35 and we didn't get home til 10:30! What was I thinking? I wasn't. We had a pretty good time though. Then the next night we watched back to the Future, another of the movies I wanted them to see. I can't get away from, "Hey, butthead!" But the Newsies singing continues. No matter what I do, I can't excape it! (That 'x' is for you, toots). The next night, or last night we went down to Orem and had tacos with Alana and Steve. It was so fun to see them on their turf. I like their turf. The kids put in Patch Adams. One of my favorite movies.

As I am writing this and going over the week of what we did, I fear for my own future children. They will probably be more movie literate than I am. Poor little dears. People will always be asking them if they came up with that last sentence or if it's a quote from a movie. They won't have an original bone in their bodies. Their lives will be totally scripted. Meh, it's not that bad.

Anyway, we never did have the dance party. Rachel read that last post too soon :). Never fear (Brooklyn is here!) we will do it soon.

Hey, you've turned out just fine... and its true, I have to ask you if every other sentence is stolen from a movie.
