A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. --Forest E. Witcraft

Movie, NOT

I took the kids to see Kung Fu Panda 2 this morning. Thought I had timed it so that BB would take his nap right through the movie. No such luck!

Instead, he went through the drinks and snacks I brought during the previews and the first 5 minutes of the movie. He almost nodded off once, and then he caught himself. NO WAY!

BB sat on my lap and was quiet for a couple more minutes, and that was it. We spent the rest of the movie in the hallway outside the theater.  I tried going in a few times, but he would not be quiet.  So, out we went again.  The manager saw us in the hall multiple times as he walked by and asked if I had been in a movie. When I said yes, he told me if I missed most of the movie, I could get a pass from guest services to return another time. It was nice not to lose the cost of admission!

The three older kids liked the movie. I had heard some adopted kids had issues after the movie due to the story line, as Po found out he was adopted.  Luckily my kids just enjoyed the movie!
