I saw Mama Mia tonight with my oldest daughter and my sister. The movie was terrible....we were checking our watches ten minutes in! And that was sooo disappointing considering all the fantastic actors in the movie. The best part of the movie was the time I got to spend with my oldest daughter doing something we rarely get to do....laughing so hard we couldn't breathe! Actually, truth be told...we laughed so hard....I peed my pants...literally peed my pants. It was as if we had so needed that kind of wonderful loving release that I literally could not stop myself.
I am sure that the other movie goers were less than impressed with us. We were loud and obnoxious! Soooo much fun in an awful movie....Good company equals good times.
I enjoy these times where we just get to be mom and kid and not dealing with another struggle or another hurt.
Marie got some difficult news about half an hour before we went to the movie so I know that she and I needed to giggle and snort with my sister. And the positive interaction led to her being relaxed enough to process her bad news when we got home. So on all fronts it was a much needed escape.
Be well and Have a wonderful night!
