We made an attempt at family movie time today with a viewing of last year's Lion King remake. Two minutes in, Miles said, "Nono...the other one!" (Asking for the original version of the movie. That's my boy!) It wasn't long, however, before he really got into it.
Amidst all the holiday craziness this weekend, Jaclyn and I managed to sneak away from Miles today to see a couple of movies. One of those movies was the Fred Rogers biopic A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. "Biopic" isn't quite the right term for the movie. It's not really about Fred Rogers's life.

Also, at some point a human catches on … Continue reading Day 119: A Sort-of Review of Hereditary
