I sit down for dinner tonight and Eva pulls out a phone cover and and then her brother leans in. She then pretends to take a “selfie” with the “phone”. It cracked me up so I had them do it again so I could take this picture. Eva had taken an old phone case and then cut a piece of paper to put inside of it. She drew on some apps and things like that to pretend it was a phone. Then she rattled off a bunch of apps that she added to it including Snapchat.
Now, we do not use Snapchat. She remembers that one time I used Facebook Messenger to put silly faces on myself and the kids. For some reason she thought it was Snapchat. Probably because those apps use silly faces.
I did enjoy the silliness and innocence of what they were doing. Just being together and having fun. I also know that, soon I will have to talk to them about social media and being responsible on it.
MASTERPIECE on PBS, Playground and BBC to Co-produce three-hour mini-series based on American Classic “Little Women” Beloved Louisa May Alcott Book to be Adapted by Celebrated Writer Heidi Thomas
Boston, MA: May 4, 2017— PBS and MASTERPIECE have announced they will team with Colin Callender’s Playground and the BBC for a television adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s coming-of-age classic, Little Women. The three-part drama will be scripted by Heidi Thomas, well-known to PBS audiences for her acclaimed adaptations of Call the Midwife and Cranford. Vanessa Caswill (Thirteen, My Mad Fat Diary) will direct all three hours. Playground’s Golden Globe-winning adaptation of Wolf Hall aired on MASTERPIECE in 2015.
“There are only a handful of American books that have resonated with readers for as long as Little Women,” said Rebecca Eaton, MASTERPIECE executive producer. “To put this deeply moving story in the hands of a writer with the heart and depth of Heidi Thomas seems just right. And Colin Callender will oversee this production with the magic he brings to everything he touches, whether its Wolf Hall or the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, currently selling out in London.” MASTERPIECE is presented on PBS by WGBH Boston.
