Carla and I took the kids to see the new penguin movie "Happy Feet" tonight. (For those who may be newbies... Carla is my two yrs younger sister who is a momma of four) Luckily, she had four free movie passes since it cost us about a thousand dollars for popcorn and treats at the concession stand. This was Teagan's first movie experience ever. All I can say is that it's not a good idea to take a 21 mth old to the theater and expect him to sit still. He was okay for awhile but got bored about halfway through. He would've been fine if we had let him climb up and down the stairs in the lower section where no one was sitting. But after a few times it seemed to be distracting to the other patrons so the idea was nixed. By the time, we did the photo op above he was having no part of it. Speaking of which, now that I'm blogging my life, I feel compelled to carry my camera everywhere to photo-document things. Yes I'm officially a freak!
The movie was cute. Especially for fellow penguin lovers. It wasn't as visually dazzling as some of the other recent animated movies. Probably because it was set in the Arctic so most of the colors were whites and blues. But we enjoyed it. The funniest part was when the theater was silent and Tatum turned around to me and said my name...... which, by the way, is pronounced "Kri-ta" these days. Yes the "s" is silent in her world. I used to be "Sheesha" but not anymore. Anyway .... she turns around and declares loudly "Kri-ta I farted!" Carla and I just looked at each other and laughed. Kids.... they say the darndest things!
