What’s Happening?

Day 227

8/21/12

Hey Elle, today was a “mommy and Bro day” and after the Bro and I went out for a while I asked him if he wanted to go home and watch a film together. Now, I offered to get rent him a film but he decided he wanted to watch a DVD he already had at home. I gladly complied and when I asked him what he wanted to watch he said, “Finding Nemo.”  I DID NOT PROMPT him, he just chose that film. Now, what was most entertaining to me, in addition to the film itself, was when I told him that the voice of Dori was Ellen DeGeneres. He was so surprised and tickled. He laughed and said, “I didn’t know that!”

Anyway, we watched move and laughed and cried together as we often have in the past, the many times we’ve watched it before. There is so much in that film for parents, I think. I appreciate it more and more each time I watch it. There is a lot to be said for letting our children find their own way and take chances. Chances lead to many roads some difficult and some wonderful but as Dori says when Marlin says he promised to never let anything happen to Nemo, “ That is a funny promise to make to…” She wasn’t kidding. How can you live without anything happening to you? Life happens! It’s hard to miss but impossible to avoid! Your Erica, E-Out!
