It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.
You know how sometimes you make plans to do something with your kids that you think they will enjoy? And then you tell them you are going to see a movie at the theater? And they say “no thanks, I’ll stay home with daddy!”
No? Not you?
Ugh. The oldest is terrified of so many movies (probably our fault), that the idea of seeing a new one makes her want to hide. And the middle? Well, she feeds off her sister, so she didn’t want to see a movie either.
Then, I said we could get a movie snack. Something we’d ever do.
And they reluctantly went with me.
One day they will get it.
45 minutes later, we arrive at the theater, grab our 3D glasses and find seats. “I’m not wearing my glasses.”
“Just wear the glasses. It makes the movie look cool. It’s so blurry without them.”
So, the oldest watches the entire movie (well, what she watches) without the 3D glasses. The middle leaves hers on the whole time, laughs at the funny parts and enjoys it (until she later hears that the oldest didn’t.
Turbo was very cute and very not scary. At all! Two out of the three of us quite enjoyed the silliness of the story.
Maybe next time it will just be a date for the middle and me. She seems to like them more!
About the movie:
Turbo is a snail who dreams of being the greatest racer in the world. His obsession with speed has made him an oddity and outsider in the slow and cautious snail community. Turbo desperately wishes he could escape the slow-paced life he’s living, and he gets that chance after a freak accident leaves him with the power of incredible speed. The newly turbo-charged Turbo embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the impossible: racing against the best that the Indianapolis 500 has to offer. Joining Turbo is his dedicated pit crew of racing snails – a ragtag group of trash-talking adrenaline junkies tricked out with shells that look like mini-street racing cars. Turbo is the ultimate underdog who achieves the impossible by refusing to let his limitations get in the way of his dreams.

If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**
