No, not THAT type of bedtime memory, sheesh, your mind is almost as bad as mine. Which I fully agree resides in the gutter. I’m talking about one of my (and Gizmo Guy’s) favorite memories of when Guitar Hero was little and Gizmo Guy would read him a bedtime story. What bedtime story would GH ask for almost every night? Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak (for Canadians, go here)

I used to shake my head and wonder at the thumps and growls as they acted it out. Didn’t GG know that he was supposed to be settling GH down and get him ready for bed? But I’m really glad I never stopped them because it has become such a favorite memory.

Now normally I worry when they announce a movie is going to be made of my favorite book. I didn’t want to see the Harry Potter movies for a long time because I had some vivid images in my head of what everyone looked like, what Hogwarts was like, and didn’t want someone else’s visions muscling in on my imagination. So when I heard they were doing a movie of Where the Wild Things Are, I worried.

I’m still not sure about it, it’s hard to judge just from a two minute trailer, but so far it’s looking good. Even though my boys are full-grown, I imagine GG and I will be going to see this movie.

(And if you’re wondering about Curly? He used to cry if we read it to him, it frightened him so much, he had such an active imagination.)

    I can’t believe it! I loved this book as a child. I remember when it came out, the hype at my school. Both my kids adore it now.

    I love that book. I’ve got a stuffed blue monster guy with horns from the book. Great memories you’ve got from bedtime story time!
