in these glasses, theo reminds me of a movie with one of my screen crushes. (by the way, if you do like movies, i loved high fidelity. i never want to know the real john cusack because i like the john cusack of my imagination so very very much. plus, hello? awesome sister, joan cusack? what fun!) and now i see the film was based on a novellette, which is only 3.99 on amazon for the kindle. i want to read it, and i want a kindle.
you know? those folks who don't like the movie watchin' so much because of where your mind isn't when ya watch one, and for what a movie can lead to...yeah. i so get it.
i still heart movies, tho. and books. i would have wanted a kindle, most probably, had i never seen Martian Child. ;)
anyhoo...back to my point. theo. my sweet five year old boy. he's sick, if you haven't been keeping up. dreadful cold. on the mend, today, but still a yucky cough and drippy nenä. i've been rubbing peppermint oil on him, and it does seem to help. but his eyes are bothering him, light sensitive, which i think is from those activated sinuses (i'm trying to ignore/attack my own symptoms which equals keep going + drinking peppermint tea and using the neti pot).
when i came home this afternoon, there was nothing but crabbiness flowing around the house, after some crankety-crabby momness, i said 'dad? let's take them out of the house. no. more. whining.' suvi and theo both slept in the car, both commenced whining/crying upon returning home. HE IMMEDIATELY LEFT THE HOUSE TO GET A BRIBE FROM THAT WONDERFUL RED BOX. hence the glasses. t couldn't look at that television because his eyes were bugging him, his whining was bugging me, i offered the glasses, we are both happy.
baddabing baddaboom, now it's bed time!
