A New Year's Resolution for You
posted by Amy
We lucked out with some free babysitting today, so Chip and I went to see Shut Up and Sing, the documentary about the Dixie Chicks. I'd spent the day alternating between gazing in horror at my badly-in-need-of-a-haircut reflection in the mirror, wondering why all my pants got so small over Christmas, and being grouchy while taking the holiday decorations down amid the normal chaos of a Saturday morning with three kids in the house (including one on wheels; Henry's Heelys are apparently glued to his feet now).
So I took my bitchy little self off to the movies, where the Dixie Chicks made everything all better. Go see this film: it's funny and smart and inspiring. It also happens to show some real mamas (okay, so they have hairstylists and makeup artists) doing the work they love with babies in tow. (Thanks to Stephanie for telling me this was something worth seeing.)
