Hydrangea Experiment Day Two

So, the hydrangeas wilted significantly since yesterday. They look kinda the way I feel. The walk TO the movie theater this morning to see Horton Hears a Who was pleasant, but the walk home was hot. And my pokey little sidekick made it take much longer than it should have.

It is naptime again, and it appears that in spite of sitting in the nice cool dark theater for almost 2 hours, Daphne is actually going to sleep today. The walk probably wore her out too.

The problem with going to kid movies is that the audience is a bunch of noisy kids. No, that's not true. The real problem is that the kids, who are just being kids, are accompanied by adults who either don't have the know-how or don't have the will to control them. It was pretty unruly in there at first, and as we navigated our way through the line of kids fresh off the bus on a day care center field trip, I thought it was going to be a real drag. But when the lights went down and the opening credits began to roll, I looked down at the Peanut with her bowl of popcorn and her blankie, and she looked up at me with a HUGE smile and said,"This is gonna be AWESOME! And you are one awesome Mommy," it was all good. And the kids (mostly) settled down and the movie was cute and I'd do it again.

So, thank you, Tally Ho, for your summer kid movie program and for having a working AC. We'll be back for the Muppet Movie.

Yeah, kid smiles are great: something that money can't buy.
