Today was the Summer Kids Series at the movie. Exbf was here so paid my way in once again. Since he did not want popcorn, I ate most of his, too.
I really don't know the name of the Peanuts movie except it was Snoopy and Charlie Brown and the gang. It was hilarious. Mostly, it reminded me of my son, the oldest child, now 48. He loved Snoopy, LOVED Snoopy. You know how children can be so passionate. He was.
Between Matchbox Cars (any brand of tiny cars), Snoopy, and his Big Wheel, he was one happy child. Today was just a little bit nostalgic for me as I watched the Peanuts movie. He slept with a stuffed Snoopy dog until he was twelve. He wore the wheels off three Big Wheels!
This was the largest crowd so far for one of these movies. The kids attending were amazingly well-behaved. As I sat down, there was a little girl about eight-years-old, sitting behind where I was going to sit and another behind exbf. I said to them, "You're not going to kick the back of my seat, are you?" The little girl behind me said, "I never do that, but she does." The little girl behind exbf said, "No, I don't." Much giggling ensued.
"Well, if you do I will give you the Evil Eye."
The first little girl said, "Oh, my grandmother gives me the Evil Eye all the time!"
"I am old enough to be your grandmother." I was smiling and teasing during the whole exchange. She only bumped my chair once. I slowly turned my head to one side but did not face her. They had been wiggling, just being children. But, for about five minutes, there was not a sound of movement.
My arm kept me up all night. I already have to adjust my body to keep back and both knees from hurting. Add in an arm that hurt. Last might, I was awake and up all night without a minute of sleep. I forgot I had cloth tape. I put an antibiotic on the gash and used four Bandaids to hold on a 4x4 gauze square. I do have cloth tape!
This afternoon, after I made bbq chicken sandwiches, I took a three-hour nap. We had salad with chicken and cheese on it for dinner and cherries afterwards.
One day this month, I asked him if he minded when I gave him a salad every time he came. "Not at all. I like it since I don't have salads very often." Whew! My kind of man...lol. It's too hot to cook. There is enough chicken here from the last cooking session to last me another week.
Since the weather is in the low 80s today instead of high 90s, I may bake brownies. Since it is rainy, I may have to use the dryer. More electric use=higher electric bill. GAH!
Does it turn you misty-eyed or tug at your heart when you see things that gave your child such joy? What gave your child joy?
