Today, I took my six year old niece to the movie theater for the first time. I think she's gone with her school before, but this is the first time she's been with me. (Her mom isn't a big movie theater buff, but me...I love movies!)
She begged me and begged me to go. We were going to take her to a park and roam around, have a picnic. I gave her a choice, and she picked Alvin. I'm glad she did!
We got a box of popcorn and drinks, and when it started she looked at me, smiled, and said "I can't wait!" Then she said, "I love you." This meant a lot to her, and it made me remember my first time at the theater with my dad. It was the same small-town theater that I went to when I was her age! They shut it down for awhile, but then reopened it to play movies (usually older movies, as you can see), and they have live events.
I was so impressed with the movie, even more happy to be sitting beside my niece! They sang the song that I remember as a child. I owned the record when records were the big thing. It made my heart swell.
I haven't seen very good reviews of the film, but I thought it was nice! It's a good kids movie, and it brought back memories of my childhood.
We came home and danced around the house, colored, and ate dinner. Now it's time for a book...
