I took baby girl to a movie today.
It’s been a REALLY long time. It was made all the more fun because
a) it was a voucher given to her some time ago, and
2) we thought it may have expired, because well, IT HAD EXPIRED.
But, in true post-covid world fashion, the use of the voucher had been extended, affording us the ability to use it and have the best time today!
We went to watch Peter Rabbit 2 at the Vjunior cinemas. It was brilliant. I zoned in and out for most of the time, (let’s be honest, I was with child after all) and when the kids went bezerk at the ‘pause’ mark to run up to the mega slide, I slid my legs out across the tiny aisle from my beanbag seat and went –
But it actually was a really sweet and thrilling movie, and I took great pleasure watching baby girl’s smiling face, happily devouring her kids pizza, snacking on seemingly endless popcorn, and giving me a heartfelt ‘thank you’ when I got her a surprise chocolate milkshake.
F%$K it. It’s school holidays, give them all they want.
It fills my heart. 💖
