I have a confession…I haven’t actually seen the Boxtrolls movie. My kiddos watched it last week while Mordecai was recovering from surgery, and I busily occupied myself cleaning and cooking (okay, and maybe reading a book too).
This weekend they
made a humongous mess exercised their native curiosity by creating Boxtroll costumes. I love it when my children are creative like this. No toys, no plastic…just their imaginations (yes, fueled by a movie) our large pile of boxes waiting for recycling and some markers…
I think I was missing a few things by not seeing the movie, since the kids all wanted me to see their “Boxtroll faces” then made goofy expressions (can someone fill me in?)….And several people, upon seeing one of these images on Facebook said, “Eggs!!!” so I guess maybe there is a joke there???
Upon watching the trailer, I certainly see the resemblance between curly-haired Apollo and Eggs…
And speaking of Fiesty-Four-Year-Old-Apollo…we make him hold our hand when we cross parking lots and he has been resisting lately yelling, “I am holding somone’s hand! I’m holding God’s hand!” all the while holding one hand high above his head.
How do you argue with that?
And speaking of funny kids…I recently explained in-vitro to a child who I overheard later in the day announcing, “Yeah, you can just go to the bank and say, ‘hey, I don’t want any money, I just want some sperm!'” You can guess who will not be going to the bank with me
ever again any time soon…
