Everything is Awesome…..

We’ve been to see the Lego Movie.

And loved it.

And at least once a day, at home or out in PUBLIC, my littles can be heard singing {loudly} the “Everything is Awesome” song from the movie.

It’s been delightful.  Really.


(And for those of you who have heard it before and now cannot get it out of your head–sorry.  It plays in mine pretty much non-stop these days.)

Cooter and Princess enjoy batting lines from the movie back and forth.  They talk about the different Lego sets that are available in stores from the movie and which ones they are hoping for first.  (Ahhh, Lego, I see what you did there.  Well played, well played.)

Today Cooter woke up and put on his new shirt that he got for his birthday featuring the Lego movie characters.  He loves it.  He had not quite finished dressing, shall we say, when he came into the living room with the rest of us.

“Hey, Mama, can I be the ‘Where’s my Pants?” guy from the movie for Halloween?”  And then he laughed and laughed until he could barely catch his breath.


Ummmm, that would be a negative there, good buddy.  Shirts and pants required for costumes at all times by this Mama.  Shirts and underwear only are not acceptable.

*shaking my head* (while doing a poor job of holding back the laughter)

Tonight I’m thankful for my children who bring me joy.  This little guy who keeps me laughing.   The one who isn’t here who shares her joys, worries, and Harry Potter quotes with me–through e-mails, text messages, Facebook, and phone calls.  I’ll take it any way I can get it.  And the one who brings me dandelion flowers she’s picked and camellias that have fallen to the ground.  Accompanied by the biggest smile a Mama could ask for.

“Everything is awesome
Everything is cool when you’re part of a team
Everything is awesome, when we’re living our dream”

                                                                –“Everything Is Awesome,” written by Shawn Patterson, Joshua Bartholomew and Lisa Harriton

Giving thanks for the giggles and the love and for all of my team–love my Zoo Crew.  They’re all pretty amazing, and yes y’all, they’re awesome.  (Well, most of the time anyway.)

Love to all.
