I was really happy that Hubbie and I got to take baby girl to her first movie tonight.
In some ways, she is a latecomer. I know of bubs who are exposed to the bright lights and noise before they’re even two, so for baby girl’s almost 3 and a half years, she comes maturely into it.
For a bevy of reasons: busy life, moving house, work/life unavailabilities… things didn’t happen in the movie department for a while. Hell we haven’t watched any flicks for a whole year either, and even then the cinema got evacuated because there was a fire threat, so I still haven’t seen the rest of The Big Short to this day.
But anyway, when we do things, Hubbie and I, we do them in style. And what would be better than taking a child to gold class?
Why, a child’s version of gold class.
Vjunior at Southland. The first cinema designed for kids, BY KIDS.
Even we were excited. We were late to the movie of course, with a rushed TGIs dinner nearby beforehand, but still were witness to the car tracks, little tables with crayons for drawing, huge wall of lego building, and slide running down the length of the cinema, with comfy beanbags and recliners throughout.
It was pretty spesh.
Highlights of the night:
*Watching baby girl eat a choc top to death while sitting quietly in her seat gazing up at the screen.
*Singing out “firework” every time she saw the Pig character on screen. (We watched Sing).
*Squealing with glee as she flew down the huge slide during the movie’s 10 minute interval.
*Dancing wildly in the aisles during the films finale of songs.
As happy as we all were during the experience and upon reflection of the night, we have a few notes for next time:
don’t go so late
pick a shorter movie
and give more snacks to baby girl.
She is an energetic, on fire, ants-in-her-pants baby girl after all.
