This morning, I told the kids that I was taking them somewhere special, but that it was a big surprise. I told them that they would just have to wait and see what we were going to do, and I wasn’t going to tell them anything.
Zander puts his hands on his hips and says, “Mom, you know I hate surprises. Just tell me what it is, and I’ll act happy when we do it!”
(For the record: the surprise was taking them to see Wall-E at the local theatre today. Our review of the movie: I couldn’t stand it, Lucy fell asleep, Ash said it was “Ok, but not the best movie,” and the boys LOVED it. They both sat there without moving a muscle the entire time!)
