This afternoon, after a long day of play, we put on Ratatouille, the girlie's FAVORITE movie. I don't know what she loves about this movie, but she really likes it. She asks to watch it at least a couple times a day! (We don't, just in case you were wondering.) So, I put it on tonight, thinking the combination of that, and the pile of toys we had out would keep their interest long enough for me to get the house back in order!
But, when I put it in it wasn't loading right. I took out the disk to inspect it, and somehow, sticky little fingerprints had decorated the back.
I breathed hot air on the back and rubbed it on the inside of my sweatshirt, then again, while the girlie was asking, "I smell it?" I didn't quite know what she meant, but I held the DVD toward her. She leaned in, closed her eyes, took a BIG whiff and sighed like she had smelled something really delicious "ahhh... I smell it!"
I then put the disk back in and it loaded right up.
What a helper I have.
By the way, the house is significantly cleaner! My kitchen and dining room are de-cluttered and most of the stuff that had been strewn throughout the house is now back where it belongs. And, we vacuumed. What a difference a favorite movie can make.
