The girls and I decided to have a girls only movie night tonight. We popped some popcorn on the stove, which was exciting. Luckily I had a large pot because apparently 1/2 cup of kernels makes a lot of popcorn! It started popping so I was holding the lid while shaking the pot. That’s when I started to feel the pressure on the lid. I was getting nervous, so I took the pot off the heat and slowly lifted the lid. The girls were very impressed! We ended up with a perfectly popped pot of popcorn. How’s that for alliteration? We each grabbed a bowl: one plain butter, one butter and salt and one butter and cinnamon sugar.
Our chick flick for the night… Lemonade Mouth. I don’t know if it actually qualifies as a chick flick, but it’s what the kids are into right now. They are learning a clogging routine right now that goes with the last song of the movie. So, we watched the movie, ate our delicious snack, danced the dance and it’s time for bed. I would say that our first official movie night was a success. I promised them that we would make it a once a month event. I am looking forward to it!
