Yesterday, we took Benjamin to his first movie. We haven’t taken him before for two reasons…1. We weren’t sure how he would handle it 2. Lennon thinks movies only come in 3D, and Benjamin is definitely not ready for that. One of the kids’ favorite movies (and ours) is Despicable Me, so what better movie to see first as a family of five than Despicable Me 2.
Benjamin loved it. As soon as the screen lit up and the lights dimmed, a smile emerged from his face. Between the smile and the occasional waving of his arms, I knew we would be doing this again and often.
I think I missed a good bit of it though, sitting with the Sat monitor in hand ready with my thumb on the silence button. I finally turned it off for everyone else’s sake and decided on just keeping an eye on his face, still missing a good part of the movie. No worries. I am sure I have many viewing opportunities in the future. 🙂
