Happy Frabjous week!
Because, clearly, one day of celebration just isn’t good enough for these girls. They like to go to extremities, these sisters. Either they are home all the time or gone, traveling the west or seeking thrill rides. I mean, chocolate for breakfast every day? I blame this type of behaviour on their mother. Its what happens when you’re the babies of the family.
So enough frabjulousness around here (see cait, I can make up words too). Let’s be a little serious for a moment (theme music comes to a jumbled stop and balloons begin to deflate). If you are a regular around here, you will notice a large portion of these sisters’ lives revolve around books and movies. What you possibly don’t realise is that in real life, these girls literally speak in quotes.
I’m not even kidding.
Myself, I have a little one. Which basically translates to not having read or watched any movie in full length — other than The Hunger Games of course — in the last 18 months. I am often left feeling like they might as well be speaking Greek or Martian. My husband and his brother speak in terms of Movies also so perhaps the language of Movies and Literature is something foreign to only me.
Does anyone else feel this way?
I feel like I need to take classes…or maybe just watch a couple of hundred movies. If only I could be like a Kindle and could have 57 books downloaded at once, most exciting or notable parts highlighted, and permanently embedded in my memory. This way, I don’t have to keep saying, Um, which author said that again? Only to discover it was a movie quote in the first place.
For now, the least I can try for is that there may be some hope for my son. At 18 months, he far supersedes the recommended three books minimum a day and can sing (in his own language…eeh gads…another language for my tired brain to learn) most songs from The Wiggles tv series. Hopefully it doesn’t matter that his favourite book is Spot Goes on Holiday by Eric Hill and that we read it at least six times every day.
Ok. Enough pity party. Back to your regular frabjulistictexpaladocious celebrations (beat that one cait. Wait…sounds a bit like Mary Poppins. Oh. My. Gosh. I can speak Movie too!)
