from the mouths of babes...

I got Little Princess's laundry out of her room, and she was sitting on the floor with her head down, like she was sad about something, so I pressed, "what's wrong?" and got no response, then finally I asked, "did Molly-Face say something ugly?" to which she nodded her head, and I asked, "what did Molly-Face say?" and she lifted her head looked at me and said, "shit." I told her that Molly-Face can go home now, because we don't need to say words like that here.

For those of you that may not know, Molly-Face is one of her imaginary friends.

generosity among children

I just want to say that I love how both princesses, whenever they have any bit of money, want to donate to The Congo mission trip that our church is sponsoring. To give a little history with that mission trip; The Doctor and his wife, who is a midwife, are helping women with health issues in The Congo, and to hear their stories about living out there helping others, really makes me want to go help them too. I'm glad that we can donate funds to help with their trip though.

I need to say...

If you see things one way, then you need to step out of the box and look in a different point of view. For me, it's talk radio. The conservatives in that format are usually painfully annoying to listen to, but I feel like I need it to understand that p.o.v., just so I can move on better. My feelings just get hurt much too easily, and I realize it's because I'm so sensitive and insecure, but how do I fix that? I try to understand.

Whenever we think we will be able to save money, an expense comes forth and we have to buy stuff. I have to take the girls shopping for church shoes today, since it's after Labor Day, I don't want to be the mom that has her kids dressed in white shoes tomorrow. Sorry honey, I will have to spend some money today...

Books vs. Movies

On Tuesday night I saw "My Sister's Keeper" at the dollar show with some friends. I read the book, by Jodi Picoult, and LOVED it, so of course I wanted to watch the movie. Well, the problem with reading a book then seeing the movie that is based on that book is there is so much detail left out, and they have to put in all those cheesy voice overs to catch up anyone that hasn't read the book before the movie. I would also advise that if you have seen the movie, you really should read the book, the story is so much better. The lawyer is funnier, I was glad that my TV boyfriend, Alec Baldwin, was who played the lawyer, but he is funnier in the book, and on the movie he's so much more serious. The brother is so much more of a bad kid in the book, which I think works better when he spills the beans in the courtroom. The main thing though, that I found the most annoying was how Hollywood changed the ending of the story. I really can't even believe that Jodi Picoult let them get away with that bullsh*t! They even added some crappy voice over to make up some sum-up of what they are doing now. Total crap! READ THE BOOK! I think that if I'm going to be able to enjoy movie and book then I need to watch the movie first and then read the book, that would help the movie to make more sense and if I liked the movie then there's a good chance I would like the book too. You would have thought that I would have known this already. Hopefully that was my last time to watch a movie that was based on a book I read. It was still a great time out with my friends though, and I'm glad that the other girls that read the book agree with me. :)
