The First Time

horton hears a who

Isabel went to her very first movie in a movie theatre this Saturday. We took her to "Horton Hears a Who!"

And since I've been asked three times already "What, her first time to a movie??," Let me say...

She's FOUR People!!!

*Just* turned four. I did not want to be those parents who feel it's their right to bring a much-too-young child to a theatre, to ruin everyone else's experience, because they feel "entitled." Whatever. She was too young and now she's not.

She sat through the whole thing, completely engrossed....except when David snored. I kid you not, he SNORED. Thankfully, only she & I heard it. But then she proceeded to say in her sweet little high-pitched voice "No sweeping Daddy!!" *snort*

The movie was very good. David said for an animated movie, he gave (the parts he was awake for) an 8. Steve Carell gets an A+ from me on his work. Jim Carey was actually ok. Not great, but not crazy-over-the-top guy either.

Congrats on the milestone.
I think it's funny that 3 people were surprised that Isabel hadn't been to the movies, when my first reaction was "she's only FOUR; isn't that a bit young for the theater?"
Glad to hear she did well and that everybody (except maybe sleepyhead) had a good time.

I can't believe people gave you a hard time for not taking Iz sooner. I salute you!! I think it's ridiculous when parents bring babies and really young children to the movies. Especially "shoot em up / action packed" movies. Helloooooo?!?

Glad she loved it and had a good time. :)

Jon was three when fede and I took him. I am pretty sure the movie was "The little Mermaid" I wanted to see it. He remembers that movie also: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Hercules, Who framed Roger Rabbit. Remember those ? anyway it's best to take a child to the theater that will actually let you stay inside the theater and not have to leave because they are not comfortable or crying. People got too many damn opinions hugh ?

Dr. Seuss is classic; after seeing Horton Hears a Who i was reminded how much good stuff that guy can pack into a simple storyline...
