Tonight, The Dad took The Boy and The Girl to the park to watch a Movie-in-the-Park showing of E.T. I put The Tot to bed and did laundry. At 10 p.m., however, The Girl was ready to go to bed, so I ran the block up to the park and stayed with The Boy for the last 1/2 an hour of the movie. I was in the worst mood today, but sitting in the park with my eldest child, surrounded by neighbors and friends, under a dark sky while watching a movie that I loved and remember watching in the theaters when it first came out was such a great mood-lifter. As I walked home with The Boy and some neighbors, I had a huge grin on my face.
