An historic event occurred in Anvilcloudia this week. No, it wasn’t that Nikki Dee had a sleepover. Or that she soaked herself while watering the garden. Or that she got her Amma up at five o’clock. Or that she was as cute as the dickens. Because all of that is par for the course and not historic … though occasionally histronic.
Historically speaking, I and Cuppa took her to her first show, which in Nikki Dee’s mind is a big DVD. And I suppose that pretty well nails it.
Perhaps you would care to join us on this milestone adventure?
After waking up at 5, the little impy-doodle had a wee kip on the drive in. Unfortunately, Amma didn't although she kinda like needed one.
I don't know why she posed like this, but I thought I might as well do likewise ... although I forgot to point my toe. Silly Buppa!
Popcorn, of course! Niks always seems to think that she should be the one in charge of such exchanges, her chief interest being in getting her hands on the paper: ie the receipt. The young man was quite cooperative.
Both before and after the show, she felt the need to explore the almost empty venue. (Note: it was a morning showing.)
This is what we saw. It was a good choice: not too scary for a sensitive four-year-old. She squirmed a bit early on but then got quite wrapped up in the story. In case you are not in the appropriate demographic, it was a new Winnie the Pooh flick called, oddly enough, "Winnie the Pooh". Whodathunkit?
After movie, lunch, and a few errands, which included purchasing the magnifying glass that she is clutching in the photo, she was able to grab a few more zzz's on the drive home. Unfortunately, for Amma, she wasn't.
It was a good day! Perhaps, we will remember it, which would be nice because we sure can’t remember our own kids’ first movies. While we do recall taking them to various flicks, we don’t know which was first. Of course, they don’t either, so I don’t feel quite so bad. Now, due to digital cameras and blogging and our old age (thus, we are now wise enough to know that it’s a monumental event not to be easily forgotten), it will be enshrined in our memories. Or at least the record of the event should remain extant for quite some time to come.
