Last Saturday, our initial plans of going swimming were dashed when the unhealthy haze still loomed in the air. So we made a spur of the moment decision and decided to see if we could get tickets to watch a movie instead!
Oh yes. It had been ages since we had watched a movie in the cinema, and it would be Emma’s very first time! After all, we would be going for Hannah’s school concert in a dark hall soon, so I decided to treat this movie outing as a trial run.
The only movie available and suitable was Inside Out. Ethan had already learnt that the movie was all about “voices and things in our head”.
Emma was all excited when we walked together to the cinema. Of course she had no inkling on what to expect.
This was taken right before the show started. Apologies for the grainy picture because lighting was bad and errrr….. it was almost time to put away our phones anyway…
We had the usual popcorn and water for snacks and Ethan offered to share his seat with Emma. The show was, on the whole, very entertaining and the cinema was nearly a full house.
Get this: Emma SAT THROUGH the entire movie without getting out from her seat! No crying, no whining and not even once asked for milk!
I am truly, simply amazed!!
After the show, we asked if she had enjoyed the movie and she gives us her usual, wide-eyed, knowing nod. She said, “I watched the BIG TV!”
