Bedtime Stories....Don't Stop Believing!

So Christmas Day Molly wanted to see "Marley and Me", well her argument that day was that movies were open, there was no DJ on Q102, but the movie theatre was open! These are things that are making me feel like she is getting so mature, she has a favorite radio station, she likes hip hop and real rap (which she lets the word gangsta slip out when asking to hear real rap every now and then?) and she is very selective about what station on the radio she is listening too!
Well look the she got some shirts with the thumb holes and she did figure out how to put her own thumb holes in shirts that didn't come with them! Haha!
She kills me because on Saturday when I got out of work I gave her a call to see if she wanted to go to see "Marley and Me", she said yes I do but there is another movie"Bedtime Stories" and then she described every minute of the previews to me in a 15 minute span of time without taking a breath and she even managed to include her own laugh in the midst of describing the funny parts! This is the same kid who 3 months ago would just sit on the phone and breathe, but now her conversation skills are extremely improving and I have to tell you I love it! She has always been a little drummer marching to her own beat but now she is trying to get people to march with her and it just makes me sooooo happy that she has soooo much to say.
Me and Katie went and picked her up and she was soooo excited she was wearing her new DC Sneakers and she was excited to be going. The movie was great, it was really funny and perfect for kids!!! I was a little hesitant with Adam Sandler but it was a good movie and she absolutely loved it!
When the movie was over the credits were rolling to the tune of "Don't stop believing" by Journey, me and Katie started singing,
"Just a small town girl, livin in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin anywhere"
Molly looks at us and then she immediately turns around away from us...
We then belted it out maybe even a little louder then the previous time,
"Just a city boy, born and raised in south detroit
He took the midnight train goin anywhere"
No one in the theatre paid us any mind, and Molly was looking at us like we were nuts, people were piling out and we were singing, like for real singing!
"A singer in a smokey room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on
Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard"
She got all nervous with embarrassment, she was telling people who were walking by we were crazy, she was trying to plead with us, no one is here anymore, the movie is over, really guys we can go now!!!
Now you know that we didn't let up it was soooo cute that she was embarrassed. This is the kind of stuff my parents would do to me, and again I always thought they were strange and now I realize they were just having fun, and it was fun embarrassing her and seeing her get embarrassed, I love that she has this little cool image that she is trying to maintain in font of the world, and I love that she was smiling the whole time we sang. We left the theatre singing and she was cracking up telling everyone we were crazy, then we left went to Nifty Fifties and she played in the arcade after dinner for a little more then an hour.
She had fun, and I was glad its been awhile since we had a really good time, like its been since the days of Sesame Place that we had fun together, and its been so long too!!! When we dropped her off at home she didn't want us to leave she wanted us to sleep over and see everything in her room, all her clothes and all her webkins, and it really was a lot of fun!
I have one thing to leave you with ....
"Dont stop believing"

I think its a theme song for my life some times!

Dana, your blogs about Molly are always so sweet and supercute! You should print them and put them in a scrapbook. What an amazing thing that would be for her to read when she is older. I hope this doesn't sound bossy! I just love them!

I do that to Molly all the time now. I do love when she gets all embarrassed. One time we were at the mall and I was singing and she gave me the dirtiest look. Like for you, it just made me want to sing more and even louder. lol
