By Fridays everyone in our house is spent. Rather than fight the battles to share toys, dry the tears from accidental bumps and bruises and beg/cheat/steal for the kids to stop running around the house- we watch a movie. Generally Emily doesn't sit for it, she doesn't really seem into movies. But last week, this is what happened. And it was blissful.
They each bundled up with their popcorn and I got about 45 minutes of this. It was awesome. It was lovely. I saw a peek into what could be!
We started movie night years ago and it's been one of the best parenting decisions yet. I love this tradition.
