Boys…..girls…..apples…..oranges! When the boy has a project I rarely hear about it unless he needs me to buy something, and if I am lucky I will get to see the finished project. The girl…..well her projects take over our lives, but then she is the over achiever.
I sat and watched the beginning with her until Guinevere came on the hill…..now there is a character I can’t stand! So I went to take my shower and she comes in when the scene with the Rites of Beltane was happening, the fact that I was in the shower meant nothing. “The guy behind the mask….that’s her little brother isn’t it?” I respond yes and she says “I knew it! And that’s really gross, you made me watch a movie with incest…really mom?” “Oh just shut the door!” was my final response on that one.
The reality….we went to Toys R Us and I bought a knight costume for $25.00 and when she is done with it, my nephew can have it. Helmet, shield, sword, bow, and tunic, That will have to do.
The things we do for our kids….somewhere during the Mists of Avalon my nose started running. I tried my best to get things done, but when you don’t feel good…it’s extra hard to find the motivation….Zia
