Went to see Sex In The City 2 with the girls last night. So happy to have a couple hours away to just relax, and Daddy had a good night with Ethan too.
Okay. Spoiler Alert. Stop reading now if you haven't seen the movie, and want to.
I think women love the Sex In The City series and Movies because they can see themselves in the characters; and they can dream about who they would be if they could. I've always seen one of my girl friends in Miranda. I love Miranda - she's really one of the best "real" characters in the series. And sitting in the theatre last night, it was like watching bits and pieces of my life - and Miranda was still reminding me of my girlfriend, even though my girlfriend doesn't have quite the same place in my life as she used to. Made me miss that relationship more than I have in a long time.
And Me! (Ryan says it's all about me - and he's right in my humble opinion) I've stood in another room and cried because I want to be a good mom, but my baby won't stop crying. I felt so bad for Charlotte! I just wanted to tell her she's not the only one. However I'm a little more ready than Charlotte to let people know that Ethan sometimes drives me crazy; but I will always love him in spite of making me pull out my hair.
I spent a lot of time today dreaming of beautiful clothes and Martini glasses and closets of shoes.I wish I could have time to write. I would love to write a book, without a toddler pulling on my keyboard. (I think that's the first time I've ever referred to Ethan as a toddler, but he's really 14 mths going on 2)
Ryan is definitely my Big.... So much of that character made me shake my head in amazement. So many nights, I wish we could go out, but are stuck on the "couch". But Big is fabulous and comfortable and right.
Some parts of the movie bugged me. Why have I never notice Sarah Jessica Parker has a chest? Why did she look perma-tanned all movie, but still had horrible tan lines in a backless dress? I'm sure other parts bugged me, but I can't remember anything else that stands out.
All in all... I guess Marriage, Kids or No Kids, Getting Older, Shoes and Sex are topics that most women can relate to. But I really feel like I should get some sort of royalties for the similarities that exist between my life and the various characters in the movie.... I always wanted to be Carrie, cause she's crazy and extravagant....
But even she thinks she's somewhere between Wild Sex and a Baby.
