Boys vs. Girls

Last night I had my third of three "kiddo and Mom" days. E.W was the last to go, it was his first experience...he, the big kindergartner, now! On these days, we go shopping for school clothes, out to dinner (kid's choice) and to a movie (kid's choice...I figure Hangover wouldn't be kid appropriate, so I let them choose!).

Well, as my luck would have it, E.W chose the same movie as Miss E. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaur...cute little flick, actually didn't mind seeing it twice! But WOWZA!!'s like they (E.W and Miss E.) watched two different movies!

"Frogs and snails and puppy dog tails"..."Sugar and spice and everything nice", yeah, kinda!!

So, Miss E.'s take (sorry, don't mean to be a spoiler, just gotta tell the story!!)..."Oh, mom!! Ellie and Manny had a baby! She was sooooo cute and they named her Peaches!!!" Yeah, that's all she could talk little lover of all things baby, she is!!

And E.W? "MOM!! Buck, he was down the dinosaur's throat and...and...he climbed out and he swung back and forth and back and forth on that thing in the dinosaur's throat?! And then, mom, AND THEN??!!! He flew out of the dinosaur's mouth and got his tooth and he used it for a sword!!!!!!"

I think they should do a study on this...pretty sure it carries through to adulthood, dontcha think? Women see the love story in a movie (no matter how gorey or action packed??) and men see the gore and action in a movie (no matter how tender and sappy??).
Amazing...simply amazing. :)


  1. Ha! I've noticed that when my son and my niece both watch the same movie together. They are only 5 months apart so it is interesting to see their take. :) cool!

  2. Agreed! I loved that movie! My favorite part was that my son laughed so hard, his stomach hurt. He literally laughed for the entire movie!

  3. You are so right! I see that with my oldest 2 (they're only 14 months apart) all of the time.
    **and the movie is very cute!**

  4. That is just too funny and so spot on. Carey wont watch anything scary with me no matter how hard I plead, and I wont rent it if she wont watch it with me so conversly I end up watching allot of chick flicks. LOL

    She will watch certain action flicks with me from time to time, but nothing that is gorry at all.

    Love and Prayers,


  5. I'll let you use my kids for subjects in the study. You are so right on.

  6. This really is so true, and it would produce such an interesting study!!

  7. That is so fun to have mommy/kid night. I did that with my kids this summer too. I took each of my kids swimming at Grandma's house by themselves. One per week. They loved having Mom, Grandma and Grandpa all to themselves!

  8. i wonder what your summary of the movie was?

  9. haha! great observation!

    so true!

    Blessings & Aloha!

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!

So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!
