In fact, we bought Disney Princesses on Ice tickets for this past weekend and he broke down sobbing. Who knew that when we were planning on an outing for the kids it would bring our son to tears. He said it was all about Avery and princesses and he did not want to go. It also didn't help that Grandmommy agreed to take our 2 year old. Spending time with Grandmommy is Cullen's favorite thing in the world besides sugar. So we ended up leaving him with Grandmommy and taking one of Avery's friends with us.
We all went to the rental place to choose our family night pick. The only one who walked out of that place happy was Doc. Cullen wanted Pirates of the Caribbean 3... Avery wanted a princess movie, any princess movie. I think we have exhausted them all, thank goodness. I am always ambivalent about family night. But in the end we decided on The Iron Giant. Cullen found it but when he heard Doc and I talking about actually renting it, he hid it in the movies so we couldn't find it. Is that not sassy? And this from a boy who has been vomiting since yesterday and has low blood sugar from not eating. Can you imagine what i have to deal with when he is at full strength?
So anyway, its The Iron Giant, which Doc is looking forward too. Connor will not sit through it so we will have to deal with his 2 year old attention span. It is iffy as to whether Avery will actually click with the movie. There are no pretty colors or pretty girls running around in ballet slippers. It is guaranteed that her bony knees and bottom will pierce our sides and legs as she jumps from seat to seat looking for a place to settle. Cullen will be very interested in the movie but more interested in how his sister will not behave or is impeding his viewing. My head will start to ache and then throb. Doc will watch the whole movie through and not recognize that any of this is happening around him.
And another Family Night will pass away.
