The Boy is all about family togetherness. This summer he decided would be the summer of Pixar. We have been rewatching A Bug's Life, Monster's Inc., and Cars, to name a few. The first few nights found us all cuddled on the couch together and gradually, we all found things to keep us occupied while watching the movies.
For me, it was knitting.
"This is a Platypus hold up. Don't move and nobody gets stabbed."
The Dad returned to his guitar repair work.
The Boy spazzed out between the rest of us and generally made way too much noise for effective movie watching.
He is always more entertaining than anything on television.
It was nice that we all felt like family movie night meant that we had to be close, not necessarily glued to the television. It was a special treat to rewatch the movies that I know all too soon The Kids will have no interest in whatsoever.
Even Nemo was so excited he couldn't sit still for a picture.
