Winter of 2010/2011 was an exciting time for a couple kids near and dear to my heart.

An unexpected late charge for movie rentals had me asking Blockbuster ‘What all did we rent’, knowing of course that I hadn’t rented anything…. The question was answered with a receipt about twenty feet in length.

While mommy may have been too busy to give any much needed love to her children, she did manage to keep the kids entertained with the following (show times may have varied and repeat performances were guaranteed):

Sadly the receipt stops there – the Blockbuster was getting ready to shut down for good.  I’m not sure why I got the late fees for all these…  But it was all for a good cause.  After all, how could  my youngest possibly have developed ADHD without the help of these movies?
