Another no picture post

I'm not really sure what is up with the "no picture" posts lately, but hopefully that will change soon...just not today! :) The girls have been spending their MLK weekend at Meme and Pop's house having all sorts of big fun. They went to the movies, had hot chocolate and roasted marshmallows in the fireplace, played in the yard with the dog...Today they were going to stay inside, snuggled up watching movies...This was conversation that I had this morning with my mother...

Mom: So we're digging out a box of movies from the basement to look for something "new" to watch today. I'm thinking Forrest Gump.
Me: Seriously? You're thinking about letting the seven year olds watch Forrest Gump? Really?
Mom: What? That's a funny movie.
Me: Seriously?
Mom: What? No?
Me: Um, yeah, no. Forrest Gump? Come on, Mom, amputee Captain Dan with the prostitutes, Bubba dies, Jenny dies, hell, Jenny plays Joan Biaz music on stage with nothing on but her guitar, the scenes in Vietnam, Forest is teased terribly throughout his whole life, and God only knows what else I've forgotten to mention. Um, definitely not.
Mom: Well I think it's only rated PG.
Me: The answer is still no. What are your other choices?
Mom: Home Alone?
Me: Better.

I mean, really, can you believe that??? Is my mother losing it???
Quinn has had an on and off weekend. Yesterday was a great day! Chris and I took him out shopping - he LOVES to ride in his stroller, and out to lunch. Then, when we got home, he got to take a nap in our big bed with Chris. But today...eesh! We think that he is having some reflux issues. The doctor said that we were feeding him too much before, but we've cut 10oz of formula out and he is still spitting up (a lot!) 2 to 3 hours after he's had anything to eat. And really, I just don't know where the day has gone!

**And, just so you know, I looked up good ole Forrest Gump and it is rated PG-13. I hope that would have stopped my mother.

I caught David letting Christopher (7years old!) watch Forrest Gump yesterday! He said the same thing, "It is funny!" Ha! I don't think so!!!!

This reminds me of when I contemplated showing the girls The Royal Tennenbaums or BIG with Tom Hanks. After you & Andre reminded me that there was a suicide scene and shock therapy in the Royal T's, we opted for BIG. They were terrified in the first 5 mins. I can relate to your mom. The girls act so grown up, you forget they are only 6 years old.
