I admit it- I went to the newest Twilight movie this weekend. I even admit that is wasn’t horrible. I enjoyed my movie time.
She wanted to read the first Twilight book. When she told me it was about vampires, I told her I would have to read it first to determine if it was age appropriate. It was addictive to me. I couldn’t stop! I ran through books 1 and 2 which were out in paperback. I then broke one of my cardinal rules and bought 3 and 4 in hardcover- at an airport! They are very quick reads and I couldn’t run out while somewhere over Kentucky!
Yes, Buttercup was just as hooked.
I have always been a big fan of doing things with my Buttercup-
I think that these books and movies came along at just the right time for us. She was old enough to enjoy something I could enjoy. It gave us a kick off for some good conversations (Bella and Edward WAITED until they were married!) and built one more connection for us.
I can feel our time slipping away as she grows more independent and intelligent and outgoing. She will someday conquer the world and leave Twilight behind.
I just pray that all of the bridges we have built will keep her connected to me.
Rule #184- To Buttercup- Don’t be a Bella!
