a WHOLE movie!


Last week Nathan and I had our first date night in forever. We went out for burritos and then saw Prince Caspian, using up our Christmas movie theatre gift cards finally (thanks Drew and Jamiey!). I absolutely loved the movie, it was entertaining and inspirational--though as often seems to be the case, the book is better.
I don't remember the last time I got to see a whole movie in the theatres! I was prepared to take our baby out and walk the lobby if she got sad or if the content was inappropriate. (Yes, we bring our daughter on dates. She's a lot of fun :) ) We were concerned with the scary creatures and battle scenes, as our little Rosebud has an innocence that we want to protect and nurture, so we timed the movie for her nap time, put her noise-canceling headphones on once the theatre got dark, and covered her with a nursing shawl--she slept peacefully through the whole thing! What a wonderful little girl! :)

Doesn't bringing your baby with you on a "date" defeat the purpose of dating...haha. Glad to hear that the movie was good... can't wait to see it :) The book is always better... why is that??
