First Movie Ever!

First Movie Ever!

If you don’t count the Star Wars movie Zane slept through at 4 months old, this is the first movie for both of the kids.  They were both excited, and both of them behaved appropriately through the movie.  *whew*  With the Palace being $10 for the whole family to see a movie, I think this is something we can add to our rotation of  “things to do”.  Much to Zach’s chagrin, because he grew up getting all the popcorn, pop and candy he wanted at the theater, we decided to forgo the snacks so that we could do this more often.  Now we just have to wait around for appropriate movies to make it’s round to the cheap theaters.  Yay!

The first “Family Movie Night” that worked

Both kids stayed and enjoyed the entire movie for the first time.  Yay!  It was even fun for the adults, which is a bonus.  I am a happy mom tonight.

  • I doubt that we can ever successfully impose values or attitudes or behaviors on our children – certainly not by threat, guilt, or punishment. But I do believe they can be induced through relationships where parents and children are growing together. Such relationships are, I believe, build on trust, example, talk, and caring. — Fred Rogers
