Eden is a big movie fan. I probably shouldn't let her watch as much as I do but... So being the repetitive age that she is, she'll pick a movie and watch it over & over for weeks until she picks a new favorite. Her current favorite movie is the first "favorite" that is not animated-- 'The Sandlot'.
A couple weeks ago while Russ was working late I convinced Eden to watch this movie with me instead of one of her cartoons. She was not eager to watch it but I coaxed her into with my mommy enthusiasm..."This is such a fun movie! You're just going to love it! It's about kids & a big dog!" Little did I know just how MUCH she was going to love it. She has asked to watch it nearly everyday since then. I haven't LET her watch it everyday but nonetheless she's seen it PLENTY of times since then. Even Jasmine knows the Sandlot. Tonight Russ told Eden she could watch it but he couldn't see it on the shelf so Jasmine pointed right to it and said, "Sandlot."
I think it's a pretty good movie. My family always enjoyed watching it during my teen years. It's just an classic, nostalgic 'back in the good ol' days when we were kids' kind of a movie. But I wouldn't have guessed that my three year old would find it so entertaining! She loves Benny (who didn't?) and never fails to tell me so when she's watching it. And during the chase scene she loves to 'predict' how the dog is going to eat Benny's shirt. Anyway, if you haven't seen it in awhile (or haven't seen it at all) perhaps tonight should be the night. It comes highly recommended! Heck--I'd be willing to let you borrow ours....really...come...borrow...it...please? Although you might have to pickle the beast!
