Last night I watched Parental Guidance with Billy Crystal and Bette Midler. No sillies, they weren’t watching with me; they starred in the movie along with Marisa Tomei and 3 really cute kids.
The movie made me excited to be a grandma someday. Not that it’s close yet, but I still dream of it.
Billy Crystal was so funny singing in the toilet to help his youngest grandson get the “urge” to poop. I would totally do that.
Bette Midler tried hard to stick to the vegan diet her daughter prescribed for the kids but when her cooking efforts tanked, they ordered in pizza. I would try to follow my daughters’ dietary restrictions but a little pizza couldn’t hurt!
Trying to be forward thinking, Artie and Diane (Billy and Bette) use appropriate strategies to preserve the kids’ self esteem, but they know when good old-fashioned discipline (served with love) is in order. I would never let my grandkids run amok no matter how precious they will be!
If you haven’t seen the movie, you should. You won’t be sorry. I laughed a lot.
And nowI’m daydreaming of grandkids.
