Movie night is one of the favorite things for us to do as a family. It brings us all together and it makes us stay there.
Sometimes it is easy to start reading books, finish one and then leave the girls with the rest of them. Ot start making a puzzle or playing a game and have to leave in the middle of the game to answer the phone or check something, never to come back.
How many mothers of teenagers have you heard say "One day you have your baby in your arms and suddlently you blink and they are all grown up".
It is hitting me too hard that the girls are growing up.
Noelia, my baby sits in the table while we are eating, telling us all she did in school and the conversations she had with her friends in school. And I look at her and all I can think is "when did she ever start talking?"
Kayla and Nicole, my two oldest, they read, they write, they make their beds better than I do, they help their youngest sister get dress, they set the table, pick it up..... And I look at them and all I can think is "wasn´t they born just yesterday?"
So today I am not blinking. I am headed off the candy store with them, and we are going to buy candies and pop corn, and we are going to have movie night. I have a great movie we have only watch once a long time ago, and I remember we all loved it. And we are coming back home and we are setting up the living room sofa´s and all our snacks, and we are all sitting down and we are going to have fun.
And I know the living room I just clean is going to look a mess when we are all done. But who cares, I can clean and blink tomorrow morning while they are in school.
