I am almost ashamed to admit this, but part of me is secretly thrilled. I have always been a creature of habit, and because of this so are my kids. Joey and I have a morning routine which consists of getting Colby off to school, having a 2nd cup of coffee and just "waking up". I normally put on a movie for noise as I start to get our day going. The mornings typically consisted of kids shows like "The Doodlebops" and "Clifford". There was a time that the movie "Barnyard" was repeated over and over, and "I'm smooshy" will forever make my family laugh. (If you've seen the movie, you'll understand. Joey still does it). When Joey does down for his nap, I put on a movie and do "my stuff" (housework etc). I am the type of person who can watch a movie over and over. Music and Lyrics is my new favorite. It's just a feel good movie, and because of it I am now in love more than ever with Hugh Grant. This has now become Joey's favorite movie, and he squeals with delight when the movie starts and "Pop Goes My Heart" starts. He now knows how to use the remote and can put it on himself (it's recorded on the PVR). If you haven't seen it, it's worth the rental.
