The Croods

Akila was home for the Easter weekend.  She did pretty well, a few bumps here and there, a lot of riding on the fence, but all in all, a blessed weekend.

We did go to see the movie the Croods which was a funny movie.  My favorite part was driving home listening to the kids talk about it.  The main character, Eep (have no idea if I am even close on the names or not), was a girl who climbed everything and was fearless.  As we were driving, the kids were saying she was like Imani.  Makes sense, Imani is a crazy climber.  They were saying Dad is like the dad in the movie, as he was protecting his family.  Made sense.

Then, Akila said she was like the baby in the family because she bites.  I looked at her, and burst out laughing.    The baby girl in the movie was fierce, attacking, and biting, and was a fearless spaz.  Akila laughed, and for the next 30 minutes, talked about how she was the baby in the Crood family.  We laughed about this together.  Not inappropriately, she did not feel bad.  We embraced something that she recognizes in herself.  I told her that we love her, even if she is a girl who bites occasionally and acts like a total spaz.

I was impressed that she recognized this within herself.

glad to catch up, we went to see the croods yesterday too. Except our experience wasn't quite so great. First movie was sold out, we had to go to a 3d movie already half an hour in, Ivy was so loud, and so antsy, and laughed way too long at some stuff and was kicking the chair in front of us. I said at one point, I really am not having a good time, and was sad to admit embarrased because no matter what I said it didn't matter. My idea of getting out and doing something different turned out to not be such a great idea after all. Spring break is long. Tomorrow we go on a plane, I am very worried about how she and I are going to handle it.

Hi, Hope you all having a great day, I'm so happy, I don't know how to explain my happiness I'm totally complete,My name is Natasha Bella. i live in Manchester England, and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with three kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven {8}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website { http://lovespelldrbrave.weebly.com/} and you can also reach Dr Brave through his mobile number +2348072370762,if you are in any condition like this or you have any problem contact Dr Brave ,{ bravespellcaster@gmail.com }, Thanks for reading.
