wow, i wanted to just lurk and read and eat popcorn but i ...well... wow. i know this is a thread bout those who don't like the movies, and why the moms are against the movies, but i'll type anyway
my daughter is turning 4 in August and loves the movies. We've gone to the movies as a family since she was about 2 1/2 and she's always loved it and begged to go again.
I bought a summer pack, 10 movies for $7 for us. We go every thursday at 9:45am, get popcorn and watch kids movies. Sometimes her 2.5yo friend comes. We meet another mom with her almost 5yo. I nurse the baby soon as the lights go down and he sleeps on my chest in the sling for his morning nap thru the movie. Today we saw the movie Spirit and she and I talked the rest of the day about horses, the army , treating animals with respect, freedome, how the two horses fell in love, how the horse got to go back and see his mama, friendship and loyalty - all kinds of things.
we've seen lots of movies on dvd at home and in the theatre. she's also seen some live theatre and live music on stage.
I'm not surprised some children don't enjoy the movies, or that some are frightened or that some moms think its wrong that i take my kids to the movies either. But in our case, its just a fun thing we do in the summer arizona heat
