So I realized tonight that I am officially one of those moms that loves Twilight. I (for only the second time) left Wilder to see Breaking Dawn Part 1. Mommy loves you, Wilder. But, it’s Rob Pattinson on the big screen for crying out loud!
I’m kind of a Twihard and have been for a few years after a friend (that’s you, Krista) made me question why I was so resisting the phenomenon (cut to me reading the four books in 8 days forgoing sleep and any attention toward Daddy Bedgood). In a word – obsessed.
I’ll leave the reviews to the experts and just say it was great. As a new mom there is a new special appeal to the franchise – the idea of caring for a baby as a creature that requires no sleep. Now that’s what I call fantasy!
I’d gladly go through that whole half-vampire-baby-nearly-killing-me/turning-into-a-vampire-horrible-pain thing if it meant a life that requires no sleep. Because that, my friends, is sexier than a honeymoon with Edward Cullen.



About Amanda Jean Elliott

I am a joyful believer in Jesus Christ, a mother, a sister, a writer, a maker of gluten free roux and a style editor. I love my son Wilder and the wild life that comes with a 4-year-old who has the energy of a pack of wolves. I also love naps (a lot). I love to cook and create my favorite dishes without gluten not because I'm trendy and anti-gluten so much as it makes me feel like I've been run over by a pack of wolves. I teach 5th and 6th grade girls Sunday School and have a classroom of the greatest girls I could imagine. Girls who often teach me more than I teach them. I believe these girls and many others are the spark to start a fire for The Lord the likes of which this world has never seen. I see more and more girls learning about more than just who God is ... but, learning about who God says THEY are. It is my prayer for every woman to know without doubt that we have a good good Father in heaven and whatever is not right on this earth, He will make right in this life or the next.
