Proof! I finally have it!

This afternoon, Jennifer dropped off her two sons and her youngest daughter while she and her older daughter went to Brownies.

Sarah and Cheyanne practiced their handwriting and when they got bored with that asked to watch the My Little Pony DVD.

I popped up a couple of bags of popcorn because I knew the minute Cody, Colton and Peter smelled it they would drop their Lego's, guns and swords and coming running.

Sure enough before the second bag had finished popping the three boys began to come out of the woodwork. I assumed they would grab some popcorn and head back into which ever rooms they had emerged from to continue playing their testosterone games.

But no! The three boys sat completely rapt for over 45 minutes watching the Flutter ponies flitter and flutter all around Flutter Valley.

45 minutes! The popcorn was long gone so it wasn't the food that was keeping them there. I think they were actually enjoying the movie.

So I have it! I finally have it! I have proof that men do enjoy chick flicks.

It might be time to rent a good Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore or Reese Witherspoon movie and watch it with Dan. Surely he won't mind. After all - I have proof.

Don't do it! Chick flicks are not as enjoyable with the menfolk around.

Make sure you make some popcorn to get him hooked!

The first step is ALWAYS food :)

Rob will actually sit through a chick flick with me, as long as I am willing to see whatever action/ comic book adaptation he likes.

How funny! "Confessions of a Shopaholic" was a good one for me. Of course when I rented it, my husband went to the basement to watch the kids movie.

THAT's funny. One time I had put in a grily Pony movie or Dora or Tinker bell... something, for my daughter when the boys were gone. When the boys came back, she was still watching the movie and the boys joined her and were just as glued as she was! I knew better than to comment!

So funny! R2 loves to watch the old Parent Trap over and over.

I LOVE My Little Ponies!!! SUCH a great movie! My friend found a VHS version and got it for me for my 18th birthday after I was telling her about it and how over the years the copy had disappeared that my grandpa had recorded off the television.
