First Moive

We took Croix to see his first movie in a theater on Saturday.  We saw Megamind in the dollar theater.  I figured that was a good first movie selection.  First of all it's the dollar theater so people know not to expect too much.  Second it was a kid movie so it was just kids and parents, people who would be more forgiving of a meltdown if one occurred.  He did great the first hour and fifteen minutes.  Which with previews was about an hour into the hour and a half movie.  He really loved it!  He pointed and bobbed his head, was pretty adorable!  He watched the movie, and all the other kids in the theater.  He ate his snack and spilled it everywhere.  We chased his sippy cup as it rolled down the floor.  It was an adventure.  Then he got restless so we made our way to the back of the theater where he checked out the wall, the door, the booster chairs and everything else.  We went back to our seats.  More restlessness.  Out to check out the hall way.  Then back to our seats.  Just as the movie was ending he was done.  We all stood in the back and watched the end and headed out before the credits rolled.  He did really well considering his age.  But I think we'll wait a little while before we try it again.  We sure did have fun thought!

You are brave to take him to a movie this young! We waited forever to take our boys. And the dollar movies is totally the way to go with kids. That way if it's a huge disaster you don't feel like you wasted a fortune.
