my three men / sun valley 2012.
did anyone else watch this tom selleck / ted danson hit on repeat during their childhood? i should do a research paper about the movies that i've loved in my lifetime. i never could figure out what i should write research papers about. in my younger years, i would moan and groan with my head on the dining room table while my mother rattled off suggestions on what i should write about. then i would come up with my own lame ideas like GRAFFITI. honestly, i once wrote a huge research paper about graffiti. my writing style and stubbornness hasn't changed. but i do come up with great topics of research papers that will never be written. (if you are in your younger years, please write about topics that matter to you.. or will be helpful in your future. parenting! the benefits of breast-feeding! why lard is important for pie crust! sticking to a budget! couponing!! how to be an awesome wife–interviews from wise women in your life included! if you need more ideas, email me. or my mom.) anyway.
being the youngest of seven, i had rich taste in movies at an early age. i was watching ferris beuler's day off and dirty dancing after elementary school. i loved goldie hawn in overboard and had (have) troop beverly hills completely memorized. three men and a baby was just awesome. and so was mr. mom. ooh, i loved that show. i was big into big business too. is it strange for an eight year old to love bette midler so much? don't even get me started on beaches. i made my mother-in-law watch it with me when we lived with her last year. last year, people. oh and what about parent trap, and then parent trap II and III when hayley mills was the grandma and there were those triplets in hawaii.. the same actress that also later had the biker chick role in the senior year season of saved by the bell. (how many years were they at bayside high exactly?) are you still with me here? this post was not intended to be about movies. that's what happens when you title a piece before you write it. i'm strictly against that. looks like i've let my rule completely slip.
and now there's seth crying. okay. must go. this is hilarious. my life is so choppy. like meg ryan's haircut in you've got mail. my beloved boys post is going to have to wait. i was going to say how much fun it is having two little ones underfoot. how crazy busy it is. how i feel like i'm juggling a circus act. i love them so much. and they think i'm so entertaining! seth is laughing now and benji is saying the most hilarious things these days. we make up random games and he loves to play cowboys and indians. or lego cowboys and indians. these days, everything cool starts with the word lego. those marketing geniuses have figured it out! okay. better go snuggle my little elves. thanks for listening.
continue on with your christmas-ing.
