Last night we celebrated New Year’s Eve with my family. It was awesome. We had wonderful food, delicious drinks, great conversation, lots of pictures and about an hour of dancing in my mom’s living room. It was awesome. One of the highlights of the evening was when my daughter and husband were dancing – suddenly Zack decided to do the wilderness explorer call from the movie “Up”. Madison received it for Christmas and has requested to watch it pretty much ever day since. Watching my wonderful husband break out in an exuberant “The wilderness must be explored! – Caw Caw – ROAR!” and Madison’s delighted return of the call was one of the most precious things I’ve ever seen.
My baby girl isn’t feeling that well today – she partied like a rock star last night and is paying for it today. I guess at three years old you aren’t really ready to stay up past midnight, even if your eyes manage to stay open that long. 😦 Right now she’s snuggled into my side on the couch as I type this. She just gave me a half-hearted “Caw Caw ROAR” when I asked her about the wilderness explorers. Nice to know that even when she isn’t completely herself, she is willing to humor me.
I’m not sure that this blog really has a point. I guess if anything it’s to take time to participate in the things your kids love. It absolutely made my daughter’s whole night to have her daddy demonstrate something from her favorite movie. Not just that he knows the line, but that he put all his dramatic training into making it the best wilderness explorer call ever given. Well done honey. ROAR!
