I thought we wouldn't take Sam to see his first movie until he was a little older, but he has a really amazing attention span for a 2 year old. When I picked him up from daycare one day last week Sam's teacher told me he was the only kid who sat and watched all of Toy Story 3. I acted all surprised and impressed, but really I was thinking "yea, he does that at home all the time." I couldn't have her knowing how much we let him watch tv!
In all honesty I cut the tv off quite frequently, much to the dismay of my little munchkin. But do I think it's gonna kill him to watch a few episodes of Mickey at night or a couple of movies on the weekends? NO. Do I think it's gonna kill my sanity if I have to watch one more episode of Mickey? Possibly.
(I must admit, there was a lot of Mickey watching last week as I was totally hooked on the book "The Help." If you haven't read it, you must, like now, before the movie comes out this summer.)
All this to say, we thought he might be ready to see a movie on the big screen so we took him to see Gnomeo and Juliet this weekend. There was a little hiccup in our plans when I paid for the tickets and the guy handed me 3 pairs of 3-D glasses. Hahaha, you're funny, buddy. If you think my child is going to sit with these dumb glasses on for 2 hours, well, you're wrong. Turns out the non-3D version wouldn't be playing for another 2 hours. Sigh.
