They are forced to find out what it’s like to spend the holidays in each other’s shoes.

This movie was an instant hit in my house!  The main reason is we can relate.  Some days I have so much work to do and I get frustrated with my boys and what I like to call "nonsense" at the same time this nonsense is pretty important to them and they can't seem to understand why I waste so much of my time doing unimportant things like laundry and cooking.
Some days I have to stop and remind myself that reading a book with them or going for a walk is so much more important then folding clothing or cleaning up a mess that will be there later.
This movie drove that point home, that you need to some times just stop and spend time together.  Mitch and Robbie found out the hard way the grass is not greener on the other side :)!
I think if I had to trade places with my boys for a long period of time my house would collapse!  I just don't see them keep up with everything.  And I have a feeling that if I were forced to go to my sons school and do common core math I would freak out....
No for real everytime he brings home math homework my eye twitches!  WHY CAN'T WE JUST ADD 57 + 56!!  For the love of god why do we have to make it a ten step process...
Okay sorry had a bit of a mom moment there.
Back to the movie!
It is super cute and the acting is great.  The story line is one we all know well, but it was cute to see it with a holiday twist.
