Happy Monday Luvs! I hope everyone enjoyed a great weekend! For as long as I can remember I've been an avid movie fan. Watching movies is one of my guilty pleasures and I can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Things have really slowed down since the birth of BabyFab but when I felt the Need for Speed I knew the timing was right for him to attend his first movie.
We chose the early afternoon time (12:00) because I figured if BabyFab somehow went on a screaming spree, fewer people would be affected, but little did I know BabyFab behaved just the opposite. His behavior was downright amazing! He was asleep in his carrier/stroller travel system when we first entered the theater and the volume inside the theater was perfect and didn't bother him or wake him at all! I was pleasantly surprised by the movie theater setup. It was very easy for me to find a seat where I had a full visual of him and also where I could get up and leave if his behavior warranted it. He managed to stay sleep for maybe the first 45 minutes of the movie and once awake I fed him his bottle and he spent the remainder of the time sitting on my lap smiling and cooing at the screen. He absolutely loved the movies! Not only did I find the movie theater very accommodating but I also found out that they offer a certified babysitting service for kids ages 3-8 for a $9 charge so parents can enjoy the movie without having to worry about their kids as well. Can somebody say genius idea! All in all at 3months BabyFab gets an A for his first movie experience and I can't wait to do it again.
Have you ever taken your baby to the movies and if so what your experience like?
