Yesterday was my last day of my week I had planned to drag myself around getting all the things done.
Unfortunately it didn’t entirely work but I am a lot more ready for someone to arrive in a couple of weeks.
We had lunch next to my local movie theatre and my son asked over and over to go to the movies, and over and over I told him there just wasn’t any for kids at the time. Which is sort of true, there are none that I want him to go see in a theater right now.
At three years old, I’ve been picky about his movie experiences.
All of his little friends went and saw Cars 2 in the theatre, something that I pondered, studied and finally said no to after hearing about loud explosions and knowing my son would cry in the theater at the overly loud noises since he startled easily.
I was lucky enough to take him to his first movie theatre experience last summer with the Oogieloves , which was perfect for him since he got to get up, get down, and there were no loud noises.
He speaks of the movie theater with a little reverence, which fascinates me because I’ve been to the movies about as much as he has in his short life.
While I’m dying to see The Great Gatsby and the newest Star Tars before the baby comes, other things and my body telling me it’s bedtime keep getting in my way of the cold dark room and a handful of Sour Patch Kids.
However, I know by the end of summer he will get a chance to go to another movie.
I’ve been following the Disney Planes movie news for a while, but not as long as my son has been obsessed with the Air Mater short on the Cars 2 DVD (or as he put it, “the scary Cars with bad guys in them” movie).
He and his friends have all had the same little plane toy along their treasured piles of little toy cars and several versions of Lightning McQueen- a Falcon Hawk 1 that zips along and frequently gets under my feet.
And hopefully by then I can leave the baby for a few hours and spend some one-on-one time with a sweet little guy who has spent all of the long hot summer dealing with a new baby brother.
What movies are you looking forward to most this summer?
