On Thursday our Family was invited to an advanced screening of the "Winnie The Pooh" movie, and let me tell you I was SO excited to go!!!
So when I got the invite to attend the screening I was besides myself and I decided not to tell any of the kids, I wanted to see how happy they would be when they found out. So we get to the movie and we're all excited because we love watching the trailers; and to our surprise like with Cars 2; there is a mini cartoon before the movie. LOVED it!
Now of course there is nothing I can say that will spoil the movie, because in my opinion there is nothing that can be ruined about a "Pooh" movie at all; but I will tell you a few things that I loved. First and foremost, have you ever heard the giggles of a squeaky 5 year old? Lovely right? It's a sound that is as contagious as the cooties!!! Well my 5 year old decided he wanted to sit on my lap during the whole movie. At first I was upset, Me: "get your own seat!" he then proceeded to melt my heart by saying:
"Mommy, I only want to sit on your lap during the movie, not my own seat. know why?"Me: "why Ant"
Ant: "because it's a Winnie the Pooh movie and it's our special cuddle time, so I want to be your baby during the movie"
INSERT THE MELTING HEARTS OF MYSELF, HUSBAND, OUR KIDS AND A FEW OTHER PARENTS THAT HEARD HIMSo he did, the whole movie; and it was the best time I have had in a very long time. He giggled so loud during the entire movie, he was into the suspense, the "ooh's and aahhh"s"; it was all priceless!!!
Best part about him sitting on my lap other than the hugs and kissies and "I love you Mommy" and the MANY "thank you Mommy for bwinging us to see this movie" ?
And this is great for Parents of younger kids who typically won't stay sitting for too long, the movie is 69 minutes long!!!
So take my advice (because let's face it, when have I EVER steered you wrong?) and go see this movie with your Family, you will Love it!!!
In Theaters July 15th
My Family was invited to an advanced screening of the film, we received no compensation (because this was compensation enough!!!) and all opinions and suggestions are awesomely my own.
