Taking the Kids to the Movies

Thanks for the guest post by Jo Levy.

I have two eight year old siblings at home, and when they saw the commercials for Nanny McPhee, they begged to go to the movies to watch it. My attempts at telling them to be patient it will be on DVD soon fail get past the excuse of "Everyone at class is seeing it." I thought it over, and recalled that they have been very good lately, doing their chores and homework without me or my mother nagging them, so I took them to the day show.

We left a bit late, as both forgot where they put their shoes. After setting the homes alarm system, we piled into the car. While driving, we agreed to pick up one candy for each of them at the store, and buy one bag of popcorn at the movies. Boy, they were giddy when we showed up at the ticket door! As we waited in line for popcorn, my younger sister decided she had to go to the bathroom when we were less than two people away from the counter. I begged here to hold it, but that failed. So we went, and had to start all over in line again.

We got into the movie room just as the show was started, and thankfully all setbacks were erased as they loved the movie. I did not enjoy it as much as they did, but it was fun to get out of the house!
