You know those days when you just feel like a horrible parent. While sure there was nothing you could have really done to avoid your kid ramming into another kid into the slide and catapulting him into the sand below or the time when they decided to play tag with a rather large stick…or the time when your kid decides he wants to use his hands to hit instead of hug. Oh yes, those days still exist and will be for a long time. You feel like a horrible parent…”what have I done to deserve such torture?” you ask your self several times throughout the day. Then as you lock you and the kids inside vowing never to step foot into the outside world again…you realize that it happens to everyone that has been a parent and you suck it up and move on.
Yes, that pretty much describes the day’s events. It was exciting and Mama still feels so awful that it was Mama’s kid that caused such drama. The boy. Always the boy. ***SIGH***
So as Mama tries to turn this day around, Lily-girl was looking forward to having the girls in the neighborhood come over for some crafting, treats and the newly released movie on DVD Mirror, Mirror starring Julia Roberts and Lilly Collins. It’s the story of Snow White (of course) and the seven dwarfs and the evil queen (played by Julia Roberts). It’s fun, imaginative and just what Mama and Lily-girl need — some girl time.
We popped in the DVD that was sent with love by 20th Century Fox Entertainment (thank you!), painted our nails (see), crafted (see more) and ate ice cream (empty bowls…) and in the end we all got Mirror, Mirror spa kits filled with branded goodies (kids expect goodie bags now even from a low-key gathering!). The movie was adorable and now is on our must-view several times a week list (yes, Mama is forced to sit through WALL-E up to three times a week now). It was the perfect summer day with friends! Run, don’t walk to get your own Mirror, Mirror copy now…because it’s just fun.
How did you spend your day today?
**Mama was sent the Mirror, Mirror DVD and spa kits by 20th Century Fox for promotional purposes. All the opinions are Mama’s own and yes, the movie was good (for real) and Mama doesn’t just say that for a freebie (well, perhaps for a trip to the Caribbean).
