Horton Hears a Who.....
Well, the kids' spring break is nearly over and we really havent done anything fun. So today, since Soren left us early to get a shot (ouch!) I decided to take the kids to see Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who. I figured any movie with both Jim Carrey and Steve Carell in it, kid movie or not, has to be great. And, I was right. I thought it was very smart and witty. The kids were cracking up all through the movie. And it was just long enough to keep their interest without fidgeting too much. Now Addison was a different story. We went to the 4:00 movie and she hadnt had a nap yet so my hope was that she might just fall asleep in the middle of it. Yeah right. She was all over the place. Up the stairs, down the stairs. From one end of the isle to the other. On my lap, off my lap. It was a good thing that we went in the middle of the week to a matinee because there werent too many people in the theater.....she wasnt noisy either which was a bonus. Of course there was that little issue of her loading her diaper halfway through the movie. And brilliant Vanessa forgot to pack diapers/wipes. I remembered the illegal treats though, very important.....but diapers, who needs those! It was painfully obvious how unaccustomed I am to going out these days. Thankfully there was no gagging or dry heaving from the horrid smell. This is one of the reasons I let her walk around a bit....I was hoping it would allow that wonderful aroma to be evenly distributed rather than hover like a toxic cloud in one spot! Ok, so enough of that. Im sure you are all happy to hear about my daughters diaper issues. The movie is a hit in my opinion.....Go see it! Especially if you like Dr. Suess and the ever talented Jim Carrey.
