My Baby Is Growing Up So Fast. We Went To The Movies Today!
I can’t believe that I took my “big girl baby” to the movies today and she sat through the whole thing!
Many thanks to the lovely people at Porter Novelli for sending us off to see Gnomeo & Juliet.
I must admit, I was a bit nervous about taking my almost 3 year old and little bub along to a movie, but we went to a 10.30am session and were one of only 6 people in the cinema. That meant, we were half the crowd! This made me a very relaxed mama. Bear went straight to sleep, and my girl and I snuggled in for the flick. It was a beautiful thing indeed!
It was a great movie. I really enjoyed it and Bliss was entranced. The only slight hiccup was at the point that Papa Capulet said quiet emotionally to Juliet “I’ve already lost your mother and I don’t want to lose you!” and Bliss’ little lip wobbled, and she started to cry saying “What happened to the girl’s mummy? She lost her Mummy.”
Um….Ok. Unexpected teachable moment. Thankfully Mama Montague was onscreen quickly after that! We had a little chat about “mummy love” which seemed to reassure her. She looks pretty happy here anyway…of course that may have something to do with the box of popcorn that she’d just emptied!
Thanks to Porter Novelli I have 2 double passes to the movie for one lucky reader. I hope the lucky winner will have as lovely a time watching it as we did. Obviously Romeo & Juliet the originial deals with some sophisticated themes and these are carried over into Gnomeo & Juliet, with a happier ending of course.
So, how to win these brilliant tickets you ask??
