Olivia and I. . .we had quite the sweet moments today.  You see, she has never been able to watch an actual movie. .they don’t hold her interest for that long.  We watch TV episodes of Caillou, Olivia, etc that last 15 minutes or so.  Well, today I got out Fox and The Hound. . one of my favorite movies when I was little and thought we’d try to watch it.  To my surprise. . .she watched the whole thing (the whole hour and a half of it!)  And, she loved it and asked questions about it and got excited and sad and scared.  That movie has always made me cry, but today I cried because I got to share it with her.  I just can’t describe the amazing feeling.  Then, later, she didn’t want to go to bed because she wanted to cuddle with me.  (She normally isn’t a big cuddler.)  So, I soaked that all up.  We talked a bit about our movie and how Tod and Copper were the best of friends.  I asked her who her best friend was and she said, “Mommy is my best friend.”  And my heart just melted.  What an amazing day!
