there are a few deliberate rituals that i create for my niece.
1. to teach her how to cook. i never had anyone teach me and i survived, but i want to also expose her to a range of different things.
2. movie night. with a nice dinner and popcorn in the temporary rearranged living room.
last night we had fondues, chocolate and cheese, because i thought it would be great to see her in glee as her ate her 2 favorite foods. and we watched "chitty chitty bang bang"- a little forgotten fact is the perv benny hill is featured in this movie- i had forgotten how much i love these movies and all the theatrics and colors and how much of a genius dick van dyke was.
someone really needs to use this song in their wedding.
