About Last Night...

This is an example of our evenings at home:

I was looking for a movie for us to watch. No one had any requests. It was just a spontaneous moment...having finished watching So You Think You Can Dance. I ran across Night of the Living Dead and started watching it. About 15 minutes into it, CJ says "what about that zombie movie you told me about...28 days?"

"Let's just watch this"  I say.

"Nooooo...I want to watch 28 days."

"We are watching this."

"Fine."

So of course, CJ has to show her disdain. 
"I thought you said this would be scary." 
"I thought you said this would give me nightmares."

After searching on netflix, I saw the 28 Days Later was not availble via streaming. "28 Days Later is not availble".


"You can look on XBox."

After a few minutes of irritation, I say "Fine. We will stop this and see if I can find 28 Days Later. I've seen this movie anyway."

"NOOOO! I want to watch this!" This is now the second child...

"Never mind! If you're going to be mad about it!" This would be CJ.

So I go to Zune on XBOX live to find the movie. It is not available but 28 weeks later is.

"Let's watch that!"

"No. You have to see the first one first."

"What's the difference?"

"The first one is better anyway."

"Ugh!"

"I want to watch the other one!!! Let's finish it!"

"Never mind. We are not watching any movie now. We'll watch House Hunters. Satisfied?"

CJ: "OK. We can play our game."

So with House Hunters, we always try to predict which house will be chosen. About a week ago, we decided to make it a real competition. With one episode under our belt, we all were 0 and 1.
So we watch the episode and right before the big reveal, we all predict whether it's house #1, #2 or #3 that will be chosen.

Right before the reveal, MiMi changes her choice to a different number. This would end up being the right number.

"YAY! I win!"

"YOURS DOESN'T COUNT! THAT WASN'T WHAT YOU PICKED! YOU CAN'T CHANGE YOUR MIND!"

"But they didn't say what was picked yet!" (crocodile tears)

Me: "it's OK. It counts."

"THAT'S NOT FAIR!"

"MOMMY, she is looking at me mean!"

"GIRLS. IT'S JUST A GAME. CHILL OUT. I didn't even WIN and I am not whining about it."

"NEXT TIME, YOU CAN'T CHANGE YOUR MIND!"

"MOMMY! CJ is being mean to me!!!"

Tim: "Um. I am going to bed."

I swear to Buddha, there has to be a fight about EVERYTHING. WTF????
