She's into Indiana Jones





Winnie (and Lizzie) have connected with their brother via the Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies. Anytime it's a movie night, discussion between them revolves around which episode and/or behind the scenes do they want to watch.
It's to the point where Winnie will see some stranger in public and say, "Oh, he looks just like so and so." I will say, "Who is so and so?"

"He's the guy who wrote and conducted the score for episode five (V)."

"Oh."

On such movie nights, the kids usually fall asleep while watching and I'll come down some time in the night to shut everything down (usually not before hours worth of theme song sound bites have burned into their sleeping brains).

Last night was a movie night and it was no surprise that they were all watching one of the Indiana Jones movies while Rich and I were upstairs watching the last disc for season one of Scrubs. When I checked on the kids Frankie and Lizzie had fallen out, but Winnie was awake and the movie was over, I saw her putting it away and searching for what to watch next. Well, when I went down later guess what she had picked?

Care Bears Bedtime!

When you consider the fact that time will not obey my commands to slow down and my new born baby just turned 9 this June...I wanted to surround her with stuffed animals and curl up next to her indefinitely.

...That's right baby, you watch those soft little, rainbow riding Care Bears till your 90 if you want.

Of course mom knows it's okay for a 9 year old to still be into Care Bears -- they are just unsure if it's still "cool" with the pals or not (so sometimes they have to tell mom or little sis how lame a thing it is for wanting to watch such a show). From a social standpoint it's safer to not get caught with "the little kid" stuff. Once in a while though, a friend will be over and they will discover each other's dirty little secret and kiddie shows will be viewed in broad daylight -- with glee even.

Happened to turn on the TV one morning a few weeks ago and there was a Thundercats episode on. Took me right back to when my son was a little fella. I curled up and indulged in some sweet nostalgia, raising my voice along with Lionel and the rest: Thunder! Thunder! THUNDERCATS! WOH-OHHHHH!!!!!!

I can so relate.
