M is for Movie

Each month, our local movie theater shows a different children's movie on Sunday morning. This month, they were showing "Abby in Wonderland". Since Sesame Street is big in our house (hence the name of this blog), we thought it would be a great morning out.

So, we head off to the movie theater in hopes of enjoying Mini Me's first movie. Overall, I'd rate the experience a "C". We were there early, so we had lots of time to kill before the show even started. Once it did, there was no less that 30 minutes of commercials and mini films. Of course, Mini Me sat through those like a champ. She was enthralled at the big screen, the darkness, and yes, the cupholders. Unfortunately, by the time they got around to showing the "feature presentation" Mini Me was done.

She watched Abby and Elmo with mild interest for about 10 minutes. After that, it was downhill. Mini Me only wanted to walk up and down the theater stairs. She also thought it was great to lay on the floor. Um, YUCK! So, after about 20 minutes, we had had enough. With that, we gathered up our stuff, and headed home.

I was a little disappointed because I thought it would be so exciting for her to see her favorite characters on the big screen. However, for a 19 month old, I think she did fairly well. Heck, an hour is a long time for ME to sit still. Maybe we'll try again in a few months.
