Oh wise mommas, let me know what you think of this idea :)
We are thinking about going to the movies with our DD, who is 8 and her friend (9) and having the girls see a kid's movie and Mom and Dad see a grown up movie in the next theater over. I would sit with the girls until the movie begins and our movie ends first. They have been to the theater before, they follow direction well, and know about strangers and safety rules. We have explained where we would be and that if they need us, that they can come and get us. (We even have an extra cell phone we could leave with them.)
What do you think? Do you see any pitfalls I haven't thought of?
