We all have colds that for a few days now have left us all manner of achy and blah. It’s really frustrating having enough energy to want to do stuff but not enough to actually do it.
Movies are usually reserved for sick time, and today I decided to pick one to watch with the wee folk. I’ve been getting in an Anne mood recently thanks to Green Gables Fables (yes, it’s another YouTube adaption of classic literature, what can I say, I dig it), so I decided to start Anne of Green Gables today and introduce the kids to one of my favorite characters.
Some of the more memorable reactions:
Anne speaks of spending the night in a cherry tree. Squeaky announces emphatically that she “likes that girl.”
Anne apologizes to Mrs. Lynde. At the end of it LK turns to me confused and asks, “Did she just say she was sorry?”
Gil calls Anne “Carrots” and gets hit over the head. Pokado starts giggling uncontrollably.
Gil calls Anne “Carrots” and gets hit over the head. LK gasps emotionally and cradles his head with his hands briefly before announcing he wants me to skip the scene.
Anne searches for the raspberry cordial and pulls out a bottle. LK wonders out loud, “Is that the wrong bottle?”
And then Diana gets sick. “I think that was the wrong bottle.”
