A little bit of this, a little bit of that...

One benefit of having a husband who works nights: during his downtime, there is no one to talk to, so now he reads my blog, sees that I am drinking flat champagne, and scrounges up some change for a bottle of cheap wine. :) Thanks, babe.

~~

The Wizards of Waverly Place movie is tonight. I know! Aren't you biting your toenails in anticipation? Well, if you lived in THIS house, you would be. I was chosen to host a party for the "premiere" of this Disney Channel movie and my kids are acting like we've been given a thousand bucks to host a gala event. The fact that our party box only contained some posters, a music cd, notebooks and other publicity items hasn't phased them. Being the rockin Mom that I am, I even baked a Big Sugar Cookie. Because I love them and know that they will love IT. Not because I've been craving sugar cookies. Not at all.

~~

Speaking of anticipation, Corinne is in full-on GIDDY mode. Her cousin is spending the night tonight and the prospect of a real, Big-Girl-Sleepover is almost too much to handle. She has been glittering up banners and arranging her room to make the whole experience one to remember. Ever watch a 3 year old try to prepare for something? Her perspectives of what will make her cousin have a good time are extremely amusing. But who am I to judge?!? Maybe lining up books, metal jars, and her favorite blankets is the key to a really grand time. I've probably been missing out...

Day 3 of Justin waking up early (like, 6 am, early) to get his school work done. This can totally continue for the rest of the year. I have NO PROBLEM with waking up to grade his work while I drink a coffee. He's been extremely accepting of this arrangement and when I pointed out that he forgot to do his geography book, he simply said "Oh! I wondered what that was!" and DID THE WORK RIGHT THEN. Just smack me with some soggy cabbage. I am still in a slight denial of the possibility that this Might. Actually. Work. Out.

~~

On that note, this is Day 1 of Evan giving me troubles with his work. Sigh... I knew it was too good to last terribly long. HOWEVER! I am headed upstairs to convince him that he'd much rather do his math and finish his English than miss the movie premiere tonight. I have a feeling that this will make his head spin 360 degrees and flames burst from his eyeballs, but that he WILL do his work.

Just a hunch.

Good Luck with Evan. And good luck with your party tonight. I hope it all goes well.

How sweet of that hubby of yours!

I'm kind of intrigued by the Wizards of Waverly Place movie. I watched that show when I went up to Wisconsin to visit a friend of mine and her kids were watching it. We were hooked on that and the Jonas Brothers TV show.

But if I'm home by myself, I can't really blame watching it on anyone but myself! :)

That was awfully sweet of your husband :)

Yay for Justin, Good Luck with Evan and that is super cute of Corinne. 3 year olds are silly like that, haha.

Have fun tonight :)

well...thanks hubby - at least yours is taking an interest! And the whole school thing, ack, I don't even want to think about it. How do you do it on your own?!

I may not have any posters or other promotional items, but I do have a couple of bags of microwave popcorn, some lemonade and EVEN (gasp!) some chocolate for the big event this evening. I also have a couple of excited kids.

Gettysburg Mom said...

Oh- and it's the whole foot issue thing that's kept you from commenting on my last post, right?

I think I fainted there after I read that your kid gets up at the hour of 6am to do homework. I don't get up that early for anything that doesn't involve money

What a FUN post! lol. Love the sleepover one! And kudos to your son on getting up so early! WOW! Sounds like the homeschooling is going splendidly!

Hope the party is a blast...and I hope Evan got to go.

My daughter has been counting down the days until the Wizards of Waverly Place movie premiere for months. She recites quotes from the previews and tells me the plot of the movie on what seems like a daily basis. So yeah, we're taping it so she can watch it again and again and again and again, and maybe once more before we decide to delete it.

And did I mention that we rented the Hannah Montana movie this week? It's been a Disney Channel movie week for us!

Yay for your hubby! And way to go Justin!

Yay for your husband! Love the party premiere.

We have that movie TIVO'd. My boys have been dying to watch it but the little guys are waiting till the big guys will watch it with them. Truth be told, I'm kind of looking forward to seeing it too....it looks cute. That said...the cookies sound delish. Maybe I should bake up a batch....

Too cute about the sleepover. I can just picture her arranging things just so. Did she have a blast? Was it everything she ever dreamed it would be?

Glad to hear that some things are going well on the homeschooling front. What a relief for you!

Hope the premiere party was a blast! I was at a five year-old birthday party yesterday, and the Wizards of Waverley Place movie was the talk of the party.

I'm not going to lie...I secretly like the Wizards of Waverly Place. But shhh! Don't tell anyone.

I hope your party was full of fun and magic!

Your husband is sweet.

We had a Wizards movie night over here too. Abby was so excited about it. It was fun to watch it with her. I was just a little surprised at how bratty Alex was. I don't remember her being quite so bad on the TV show. Made me a little nervous about the teenage years. :P

The movie didn't bother me. The first three times. Today I am home with a sick kid, who has now watched it twice. I am ready to throw something at my TV.

My girls were both invited to parties to watch it. I thought I'd gotten off lucky. But no, they DVR'd it and yeah...blech. ;)
