PARKER AT THE PICTURES
I took Toddler MM to his first movie in the theaters yesterday. He did pretty well, lasting about 80 minutes before we had to bolt due to his restlessness and noisiness. So daddy didn't get to see how the film ended. But overall it was a fun experience. Bubba laughed at the silliness of the dogs. We even laughed at some of the same scenes. And he sat on dad's lap and enjoyed popcorn the whole time. It's funny. Parker, at age 2.5, unlike most children, has never been interested in animated movies or TV shows. Instead he likes live action programming like Wipeout and NBA basketball. That's why I chose "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" because I thought a live action film with pets in it would hold his attention. And for the most part, it did. He was so cute, yelling "again" after parts of the film that made him laugh. Unfortunately, dad didn't know how to explain to him that the magic of TIVO hasn't come to the movie theater yet. We will add this film to momma's DVD collection when it comes out in March so that we can own Bubba's first film experience, but also so daddy can figure out how the movie ends.
