Two Adults, One Child please…

My husband and I are going to see Iron Man 2 this weekend!!!  I’m beyond excited about going!  The downside is we don’t have a babysitter, so our almost 5 year old son will be tagging along with us.  I am very uncomfortable with doing this.  We’ve done it once before, but my son was too young to enjoy the movie and ended up falling asleep halfway through, which worked out nicely.  Still, even him now being almost 5 and able to sit at home and watch an entire movie without getting restless, I feel as if something will happen to ruin the movie magic.

Nothing beats movie popcorn.  Nothing!

I don’t want to be one of those parents who has the whiny, crying, obnoxious kid in the theater while the adults are trying to enjoy a movie.  Nothing is worse than a kick ass action sequence getting interrupted by a wailing baby.  Or getting hit in the head by skittles tossed by some little brat a few rows back.  My husband thinks I’m being silly, and I truly hope that I am.  Regardless, I know I’ll still feel some guilt bringing him into the theater, but I also know that he’s a good boy when it comes down to it, and it should be a fun Saturday afternoon.  It’s Iron Man!! What could be better?

  1. hmmm. If it were rated R I would say you were in the wrong…since it’s rated pg-13 you’re not. Your kid does get drawn in by comic book inspired movies? At 5 most kids have a grasp of what is going on…unless he is just a.d.d. or something…I would think he should enjoy it and also it’s not as if you’re taking him to…I don’t know nightmare on elm street or something…loud rock music and explosions and transforming costumed people..what’s NOT to love for a 5 year old in iron man?

  2. so how was the movie?

      It was freaking amazing and we are going to see it again this coming weekend! The funny thing is, in the row directly behind us was a 2 or 3 year old boy with a bottle who insisted on yelling at race cars and singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star through the first half of the movie. Made me feel silly about worrying what my kid would do 🙂

  11. Therefore, most of them erase the idea of renovation
    and continue to work in those outdated, dull and gloomy kitchen environments for the rest of their lives.
    In most instances, people usually buy some things just because they seem trendy and not that they like them; they may
    then not like the items only a few months down the line.
    Stunning new pendant lights can smartly become the main attraction of the room.
