I didn’t sleep so well last night. Stella didn’t let me sleep. She got me up at 1:30 a.m., 4:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. I love her anyway.
When I did get up for good I had a breakfast of blueberry toaster struedel with the kids for breakfast. Peter worked on laundry. The kids played with the puppies and watched movies. Kayla got a bath. I made homemade sausage pizza for lunch.
Then it was time for the movie.
The kids had never been to a movie in a theater before so we decided to give it a shot. We showed them trailers for Coraline and The Race to Witch Mountain. They agreed (surprise!!) to The Race for Witch Mountain. We decided on the 3 p.m. show, hoping it wouldn’t be too terribly crowded.
We got there early, about 2:20 p.m. Peter bought the tickets and then we got in line for popcorn and soda. The kids each got a movie theater kids’ meal, which included popcorn, a small package of skittles and a sprite. They were THRILLED.
We got to the theater, and as it turned out, it wasn’t a crowded show. They did well. Better than I expected. They didn’t sit in their seats for the entire movie like little statues, but they seemed to watch most of the movie. They moved between where Peter and I were sitting and the row in front of us.
All in all, a good time was had by all, I think.
I love being involved with their “firsts.”
