Tonight we watched the Spongebob Movie (the original). It was Willow's first time watching.
We haven't watched this movie in years. In fact, it has been years since we have watched a Spongebob episode. Until recently. For some reason, Willow has become interested in it. And she has the best archive to watch it from....Michael LOVED Spongebob. He watched every episode he could when he was younger. He has almost every DVD.
So, here we are, 11 years later...all watching a movie that most of us have seen multiple times. And it is wonderful. And nostalgic. We remember the time we went took five year old Michael to see it. We remember the soundtrack being played through out the next year (its actually a great soundtrack).
Back there in time...and there was our young man there remembering with us, explaining his perspectives. And then we are brought back to the present...with Willow's peels of laughter.
I was getting kinda tired of the Spongebob marathons lately....but now....oh, heck...I don't mind. They are only young once...
