4 Babies Worlds Apart...



What better way to spend Mother's Day 2010 than with a movie about BABIES!
On Mother's Day, May 7th 2010 an amazing movie is going to hit theaters.
It is a movie about 4 babies from around the world who are simutaneously being followed and filmed from before birth and on. 4 countries, Mongolia, Namibia to San Francisco and Tokyo, you will see even though we are worlds apart we are very similar creatures.

Here is a trailer from the movie that I found very cute, funny and yet very familiar. Let me know if you plan to see it when it comes out on Mother's Day. Chucky and I watched the trailer together and we were both chuckling. He asked me when it was over, "Did I do that when I was a baby?" I told him yes and he said, "All babies do stuff like that huh mom!" I had to agree with him again. So wether you are in for some cuteness or trying to teach your children that we aren't different from the rest of the world, take them to see Babies!

Flashback...

My son is always telling me how "uncool" I am so when the opprotunity arose for us to bond over some Bon Jovi, I jumped at the chance.
We were in the car on our way home when "You Give Love a Bad Name"  by Bon Jovi came on the radio. Of course I turned it up, I look over and Chucky is singing, so I started in {psyche}. Chucky stops singing and asked me, "how do you know this song?" He acted like it was a new song, a song that had just came out and that he ultimately discovered. I said I used to listen to this in junior highschool, and he said, "it's that old?" I thought my god, that is an old song. It doesn't seem like yesterday, but it sure doesn't seem like thirty years ago.
I sit here with a smile on my face just thinking of the good and bad of the 80's and think to myself... I am so glad I got out alive!
Do you remeber the 80's? Well here is a little back in time action for you. Feel free to laugh out loud, get a little red in the face and definately say to yourself, What Was I Thinking? Enjoy;}




Things that I could live without:
neon-anything neon socks, bracelets, shirts, shoe laces, t-shirt clips, big hair- the claw, keds without laces, keds with neon laces, parachute pants, cut off sleeveless shirts, aqua net, pee wee herman, big shoulder pads, skater haircuts{lop sided}, garbage pail kids, floppy disks.







   


















               













Things that I wish we still had:
trapper keepers, popples, scratch-n-sniff stickers, sticker albums, sticker collections, roller skating rinks, tetherball, polaroid cameras, swatch watches, jelly shoes, atari, and of course all of our 80's music.
