eavesdropping

We had one of Hunter's friends over for a little while yesterday afternoon while his parents were still at work. The boys had gone to hit some black diamonds for a few hours prior to this, so they were tired.

Wall-E was babysitting in the living room.

Oh, the sweet love story between Wall-E and Eva. Although I've never made it through the entire movie, I have seen the "love connection" between the two robots.

I was in the kitchen, just one room over and heard my almost eight year old say to his friend:

"I want to fall in love someday. Have you fallen in love yet?"

His friend quickly answered that he had, but I couldn't hear the rest of the conversation without entering the room.

Hmmmm.

What I find really interesting is that there is no real dialogue in this Disney movie. It is through robot body language that Hunter figured out that Wall-E was smitten for "EEEEE-va."

I hope you fall in love someday too buddy.

Pick a good one.

  1. such a sweet story of youth and innocence. It's hard to believe 8 is already thinking about falling in love.

    I too am amazed at the depth of Wall-E's story conveyed with so few words.

  2. awwwww! How sweet! I've never made it through Wall-E all the way, either. Sounds like we need to have a movie night and watch that. I love catching little conversations like that, too. It's nice to hear what's going on in those little boy minds every now and again. :)

  3. What a sweet, sweet story.

    I pray that my boys marry well. (After all, those poor girls will have to deal with a crazy mother-in-law. :)

    What a great moment to remember...

Messy and wonderful perfectly describes my life as a wife and mom of five. I'm passionate about advocating for orphans by telling their stories and encouraging adoption and orphan care. My schedule is messy and wonderful as I am charged with four sons and one daughter. We love living in our little mountain ski town. We do a little camping, a little skiing, a little hunting, and a lot of laughing and loving. Life is dirty and loud around here but we wouldn't want it any other way. Okay, maybe a little less dirty!
