Ed, aka Big Daddy Awesome, has decided that the boys should see some of the movies that he enjoyed from his childhood. Most of these happen to be more kid friendly than what is currently available and I enjoy these movies too, so the early part of their spring break has been spent watching these movies. We’ve watched C.H.O.M.P.S. and The Toy and Transylvania 6-5000. We also watched Saturday the 14th, which happens to be a tiny bit scary, but only in a spoof movie sort of way. We spent a rainy Saturday afternoon watching it. Trip sat cuddled up to me. Ed was laid out on his couch with back pain and a good view of the television. Logan spent the entire two hours of the movie standing in the kitchen at the top of the two steps screaming at the television.
Logan, “GET OUT OF THE WAY GIRL! THE MONSTER IS GOING TO GET YOU!”
Ed, “Logan, stop screaming and sit down.”
Logan, jumping up and down, “I CAN’T! THE MONSTER IS GOING TO GET THEM! OH MY GOSH! THERE’S ANOTHER MONSTER!”
Me, “Logan, calm down!”
Logan, “IT’S SCARY! CAN’T WE WATCH SOMETHING ELSE? I DON’T LIKE SCARY MOVIES!”
Ed, “Logan, QUIT SCREAMING!”
Logan, “GET DOWN BOY! THE MONSTER IS AFTER YOU!”
It was like watching a movie with my mother. She’s never once watched a movie that she enjoyed without screaming at the television. I am fairly sure that Logan hasn’t watched a scary movie with her yet. When that does finally happen, I don’t know that anyone will actually hear any dialogue during the movie.
