Why it took me a year and a half to figure out that the "premium movie" channels on my DVR's Video On Demand are free, I will never know. That said, I have discovered a wealth of kiddo movies that I can just dial up for free...FREE! (you know, me likey da free)
So, we watched Wall-e over the weekend. What a sweet, thoughtful movie:) The kiddos loved it, I loved it. The Little Man actually looked at me and said "Mommy, I really liked the music in dat movie." (Ummmm...he's barely three, and picking up on the music in a movie!)
Immediately, they wanted to watch it again. I cued it up, and let them watch it again (it's really cold in Chicago so we had a lot of inside time) The Little Man says..."Mommy, I'm Wall-e!" I see that, a scrappy little robot who is loyal and sensitive and sweet. Yep, that's The Little Man.
Then Miss Peach says..."Mommy, I'm Eve!" I see that, sassy little robot who is tough as nails, confident with a soft side. Yep, that's Miss Peach.
Any guesses on who they say Mommy is?
"Mommy, you are The Cleaning Robot!"
The Cleaning Robot! Mommy is The Cleaning Robot! The little automated dude who spends the entire movie chasing dirt and saying "foreign contaminant". OK:/ I mean I suppose it's better than being the rotund folks floating around on the hover crafts because they are too lazy to walk, while shoveling pizza in a cup in their mouths...right?
We watched the movie again. Of course, when it was over, Miss Peach turned around and wiped her jelly filled hand across my leather couch, looked at me and said..."Mommy, again, again, can we watch it again?"
No, I did not let them watch the movie for the third time in a row...but I did get out a wipey and wash the jelly off of my couch...
OMG, I am The Cleaning Robot:O
