I did something today that made me question my sanity. I took the children to a movie. Granted, it was one of the summer films offered by our local movie theaters that caters to children . . .but I didn't think there was anything magical about the theater itself that was going to convine the 1yo to stay in his seat for 90 minutes.
Upon showing up at the theater I realized my debit card was not in my wallet, but by the phone at home. I magically scraped together four dollars from my wallet, my church bag, and the van cup holder to get us in.
Apparently the theater did have some magical qualities because James fell asleep about ten minutes into the movie, and woke up about an hour later. Megan hung out in the sling for the most part, but was awake virtually the whole time.
We snuck out soon after we were convinced that the Who's were safe, a smart way to avoid the crowds flowing out of the theater at the very end.
It was a good experience, but I may not do it again for a while.
