I got a phone call yesterday from Peanut's school asking me if I could come get her because she wasn't feeling good. I had tried to talk her into going home and taking a nap instead of going to school before dropping her off at kindergarten but she was the treat person and insisted the 5 minute power nap she got on the way to school was just what she needed. Little Liar.
So we spent the rest of the afternoon vegging on the couch. I spent most of that time holding her. I like being needed.
Later I called Nickel and asked him to pick up a movie for her. He had wanted me to skip church, just this once, and the three of us go to the park but settled for watching movies all night.
For Peanut we watched The Chronicals of Narnia. She had seen it in theaters with friends but I was too cheap to buy a ticket and we finally got around to renting it. I really enjoyed the movie. I thought the special effects were awesome!
After we sent Peanut off to bed we put in a scary movie. I don't like scary movies. I talked Nickel into watching Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back which was in our DVD collection instead. He can watch the scary movie after Peanut goes to bed tonight.
It was a nice, relaxing evening. It meant more to me then he'll ever know, I'm sure.
