This week, I got to take Megan to the movies for the first time. We have held off until now coz I really didn’t think she’d sit still well enough for even a kids film. But with only one seat change, and minimal talking, she did really well.
There were lots of questions and loads of preparing from me…lots of seats, have to be quiet, big screen, loud noises/music, etc. I’ve found that giving the kids a heads up in these new situations means they know what to expect to some extent.
We went to see the latest Tinkerbell movie, which I LOVED!! (I have a bit of a soft spot for Tink!) Megan loves Tink too, but I think the big winner for her was the snacks. She requested popcorn…where she got the idea from I don’t know, TV I suppose.
And when she saw the size of the box she was over the moon. A “special drink” (lemonade) to top it all off and she was sold on the whole experience!!
Not sure if Alex would be as co-operative, but Megan and I will be back to the cinemas again…soon I hope!
