A "Hop" and a skip to the movies
We saw the Easter bunny movie, "Hop." Here's a breakdown of our day.
Noon: I ask Sam if he's excited. "Go to movie, daddy," he said.
12:30 (as my wife drags to get ready): "Daddddy, go to movieee!!!"
1:05: We're settled in our seats. Sam: "Want popcorn."
1:10: Sam has his popcorn, and he's munching away.
1:20: Sam takes his shoes and socks off and lounges back in his seat. The king is in full relax mode.
130: Sam: "Go home, go play."
1:40: Sam begins throwing popcorn at mom, who is not pleased. I think Sam woke her up.
2:05: Popcorn is flying everywhere, except in Sam's mouth.
2:11: Sam throws his sippy cup into the row in front of us. Daddy's cell phone becomes a flash light while searching for said cup.
2:15: Sam begins swimming in popcorn on the ground. My wife and I look at each. "Bath tonight."
2:25: Sam begins talking really loud.
2:35: The film's climatic scene has the audience riveted (well, maybe some of the children in theater). Sam really doesn't seem all that thrilled.
2:40: The movie's over and I ask Sam if he liked it. "Like bunnies. Like chickens."
By the way, "Hop" is awful, but your kids will love it.
