The girls had the day off of school and I thought it would be a nice day to go do something fun together.
Brave is at the cheaper theater here. $2 per person, I can afford that once every six months or so!
When I first saw the trailer I thought I’d hate it because Merida seemed to be a whiny brat of a child but then I heard from someone’s blog post (can’t remember who) that it was actually a good story about the mom and daughter having differences so I got excited! haha
I cried through certain parts of the movie! So did Brooklyn and Sierra! Oh my gosh it was SO good! Raising a daughter who is very, very, very different than I am, the movie had a powerful message about that and I really appreciated it. lol- from a child’s movie.
The girls had tooth fairy money and birthday money left and they wanted to go to McDonald’s for ice cream before the movie. So I bought all of them happy meals for lunch first.
Ember spotted this one year old little boy and decided they were best friends. She played with him the entire time. And he was giggling at her and loving it. So cute!
We got to the theater and settled into our seats when I noticed Payson clutching his crotch with a death grip and squirming around like crazy. “Do you have to go pee Payson?” “NOO! I don’t have to pee!!” He squirms even more and he uses both hands to hold himself. *sigh* (he always lies about having to pee, no matter WHAT he’s doing and has accidents all the time because of it)
I grab my stuff and get up to take him potty. In the restroom while I’m helping him Ember is doing her usual routine of touching EVERY SINGLE SURFACE in the entire place! UGH, WHY?! So I help them both wash their hands and then they only have those stupid air hand dryers! I HATE those. I’m fine using them but my kids always leave with sopping wet hands AND I hate having to open the bathroom door with my hands and not with a paper towel. (Yes I know I’m an ultra germaphobe but I think in a nasty public bathroom I have every right to be! haha)
But then the kids want quarters for games. I allow them each one game. The games are 50cents each and we’re on a tight budget. The $2 I coughed up (after $12 for McDonald’s and $16 for the movie and treats) was just too much for me. I shouldn’t have even spent any of the money I did, but… well. I did.
So after all that fun all three of the older kids were WHINING and even CRYING about not having more money for games!!!!!! Can you believe that? I told them next time they had a day off of school we were staying home and doing chores. haha
