Happy 2012 to all of you!

in Ah, me boys

I‘ve been having too much fun with the boys to be blogging much through the holidays, but I’ve been missing all of you. I didn’t have anything particularly interesting to say, until I overheard this snippet of conversation just a few minutes ago and thought it was the perfect note on which to end 2011, as we settle in to watch a movie with the boys. (Either the second instalment of Harry Potter, but I don’t want to usurp the book we haven’t read, or the second movie in the LOTR trilogy. I’m leaning toward LOTR, as Tristan is quite concerned about Gandalf’s fate after having just finished Fellowship of the Rings a few nights ago.)

So, the conversation I overheard. Ahem, yes.

Boy, to his brother: “Did you know that when you get married, your testicles turn into babies?”
Brother: “Well that’s another reason I’ll never get married. I want to keep my balls!”

And with that, a happy new year to all of you. Let’s hope 2012 bring all of us more than our share of joy, laughter and moments filled with wonder.

xo Dani

We were considering watching LOTR over the holidays but we were worried it would be too much for our 8 and 7 year olds. How did the boys like it?

Lynn, we’re 60 mins into The Two Towers (I always want to say the twin towers!) and there have been a few times when they flinched (like when Bilbo gets all evil trying to take the ring back from Frodo) but the boys haven’t seemed too fazed by it. I remembered it as being more scary than it has been.
