Whatchoo-Wish-You-Were-Wearin’ {If You Were 6 And Headin’ Out To The Movies With Mom} Wednesday

This weekend, The Boy and I are making our way to the theater for a movie date.Sleepless 2017 live streaming movie

Given my love for old films, you might think we were off to see White Christmas or It’s A Wonderful Life or Shop Around The Corner.

Love ’em all, but that’s not where we’re going.


A local theater is showing classic films at 10 am the next few Saturdays, and this weekend’s feature is a film that I think every young boy should see in the month of December {with his mother by his side, of course, ready to giggle-at-while-simultaneously-poo-poo-ing any poor behavior}: A Christmas Story.

Trust me, I’m doing all that I can to ensure that The Boy knows the real reason for this glorious season, but this movie—in my book—is a right of passage for any kid almost old enough to hold

  1. That is one lucky boy! And an adorable outfit also. Good finds.
    I have never seen that movie all the way though. Though, I have seen bits and pieces that may add up to the whole. LOL

    “you’ll shoot your eye out…”

    Have fun at the movies!!

    Peace and Love

    One of our all-time fav movies! I actually bought it a few years ago, we love it so much!
    I think that love was cemented into our hearts the Christmas night 6 years ago that I had to rush Ben to the emergency room… We had just eaten Christmas dinner. Ben was seated at the table, trying to figure out how to “open” a totally age-inappropriate New Year style “popper” (more accurately, “death on the end of a string” gizmo, with a large. very heavy gauge spring that was, literally, the size of an adult male’s thumb, compressed inside it), part of a “goody bag” from a party a few weeks before. I had not seen, and therefore, not surveyed the contents of the bag prior to Ben emptying it onto the table and starting to twist and pull at the “popper”, which, though much larger, did somewhat resemble the old-time, wrapped Holiday party favors common in Britain. Talking with my Dad, I was only vaguely aware Ben had begun to empty out a small paper bag onto the table.
    Then came the loud POP, not unlike a gunshot, and I watched what seemed like an awful slow-motion crash scene, as Ben recoiled and screamed “OW!! OW!! MY EYE!!). I saw pieces scattering onto the table, and with speed that matched that missile of a party favor, I was gathering him up and trying to get a look at his face…his EYE. It was red, the skin already bruising in a strange circular shape, just below the lower lid. Then, I saw the spring, next to several other bits of “schrapnel” and I saw red…I was livid! I called the Pediatrician on call, who agreed a trip to the EW was needed. We waited in the EW waiting room for several hours, then spent another hour and a half with the doc (it was a very busy night there). We kept time by counting the number of times “The Christmas Story” replayed back to back on the TV there! We counted 4 times, from opening scene to closing credits, while we sat and waited, before and after being seen. Thank God, Ben’s eye was intact, and, after numbing drops and a full exam, the EW doc ordered antibiotic ointment, eye patch and rest. And, thanks were said for the Christmas night TV programmers who gave us the gifts of laughter, distraction and silly, sweet kid humor to calm us and help make a scary and long wait bearable and even…fun! “You’ll poke your eye out, kid!” has stuck with us ever since, perhaps for more than one reason! 🙂

    • Oh my gosh, Kathy, now there’s a Christmas you’ll never forget. I’ll never NOT think of you when I hear that line now!

  6. How fun is that? I wish our theaters did that!!! Have fun and I am always a fan of the Griswold’s. 😉
