For the last couple of weeks, if Emerson did well all week at school, she got to go to the movies after school on Friday.
It's a great incentive for her, and I get to go to the movies. It's a win win!
Last Friday and tonight, we got a special treat, Matt got to go with us.
This week, Emerson came out of school without any late slips, so off we went to see "Confessions of a Shopaholic"
I was really leery of this one. I had read and LOVED the books and to be perfectly honest, I was scared they were going to ruin it.
Well. I don't know if it was because it has been many years since I picked up those books, or that adorable Isla Fisher, but we all walked out of the movie with smiles on our faces.
So for my FFF this week, Matt took a picture of Em and I at the movies.
OOOOOOOHHHH......I forgot to tell you the best story of the day!!!!
When I picked up Emerson today after school, she told me a little tidbit.
Em: "Today, Celeste asked me something that Luke asked her to ask me."
(SCORECARDS... SCORECARDS HERE!!!! Can't tell the players without'em!!!)
Me: "What did he ask?"
Em: "I can't tell you until the end. So, Celeste asks me and without even thinking I said yes"
Me: "Well, what did he ask?"
Em: "Hold on! Then I thought about it and I decided that I came to the right decision."
Me: "You're killing me, Em!"
Em: "OK, Luke asked Celeste to ask me if I would be his Valentine and I said yes."
Me: "That is so sweet!!!"
Em: "Celeste told me that he's had a crush on me since the first grade!"
Me: "Well, you used to call Luke your boyfriend in Kindergarten."
Em: "Are you crying, Mommy?"
Me: "I was just thinking about how lovely that story is going to be at your wedding. Do you think you'll want to go with a band or a DJ?"
Me: "Well, you could do much worse, you know, his mom is really nice!"
