I get to be...
Do your kids ever play the "I get to be..." when you watch a movie? Alec is totally into it. He especially likes to argue for which Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle he gets to be. (How he can keep reptiles named after Renaissance painters straight I will never know.)
The other day we were watching Sleeping Beauty. Alec, his cousin Sky, and a friend were choosing whom they would be for the movie. The girls called for each of the old fairies and Alec tried to decide between Prince Phillip and the King. My niece Skylar then announced, "And Rita will be her." When I looked up to see which character I had been matched to, I saw MALEFICENT--meanest, maddest, ugliest villain ever! I guess I need to do a little more work in the campaign for favorite aunt.
