We have never been big movie watchers. There always seems to be somewhere to go, or something to do, or someone to see… or at least there was.
Lately we’ve instituted a once a week movie night. And while it is nice to watch a movie more than once every six months the actual reason we started it was for the snuggle time. The girls have all been in need of more hugs and more cuddles, (Who hasn’t?) and everyone, even the teenager, wants “just two minutes of snuggling” at bedtime.
So now once a week we all pile on the couch, the dogs and cats are optional and frequent add-ons, and re-charge our snuggle-meters. And if we enjoy a movie in the process, so much the better.
Where is your snuggle-meter at these days and do you have a family movie recommendation?
When I was a teenager in Western Australia there was just one film a week on television, Friday night! So it was a real family treat in the days before videos and now the many ways you can get to watch a film at home.
Not a movie, but the Neil Patrick Harris version of a Series of Unfortunate Events as a TV series was kinda delightful. I mean, it’s terrible. Terrible things happen. But it’s also lovely. 😀
