So honestly, I was a little hesitant to take Anna to see her first movie. Not that I didn’t think she would do a great job (she giggled through the whole thing and kept hitting my arm to repeat the line she just heard that made her laugh), but I wanted it to be special…like Hudson’s. He waited 5 years. 5 years to get to see Toy Story 3.
She’s a second child. Enough said, I guess. Armed with a box of Mike & Ike’s to share, she was grinning ear to ear. She was shaking she could hardly contain her excitement.
We were tired of being stuck inside and looking for something to do a couple of weekends ago and thought we’d frequent the local discount theater. We paid 15.00 for 4 movie tickets, kid’s popcorn, a kid’s drink and an adult drink (with free refills on all drinks)….so it was a cheap family night.
We saw Despicable Me and she had a great time – in fact, we all did. I am somehow in my head trying to rectify the fact that when I take her to a “real” movie theater (that isn’t crusty and have 2nd run movies AND costs a ridiculous amount for a ticket) that it will be for a princess movie or something that she really wants to see. Girly. Just like her ;o)
