Every Tuesday I try to spend some quality time with my kid. She looks like her mother, but received a lot of my personality. Tuesdays are one day every week that we watch a movie together and eat popcorn, and today was no exception. Today’s flick was The Polar Express. Chuck gets to pick the movies, which actually aren’t too bad. She’s not into most of the awful kid programming I hear some parents complain about and her favorite movie is Fantastic Mr Fox. With all the problems going on in the world today, I figure the least I can do is try to ensure my child has a good appreciation for film and knows I care about her. Some day we’ll watch the Alien Anthology, Star Wars or all six seasons of Oz. For now we’ll stick with more G-rated stuff though and continue to make popcorn together on the stove.
