A March Goal FAIL...

One of my March goals was to do some activities with the kids. Brent and I decided to take the kids to Zootopia. I was really excited because a) the movie looked cute, b) it would achieve my goal, and c) it would be Drew's first movie. Brent was tolerating the idea of going. {grin}

Well, let's just say...this was a disaster!


She looks really excited, doesn't she?

I don't have unrealistic expectations for going to a movie with kids. Do I expect them to be totally quiet? No. Do I expect them to sit still? No. Is a bathroom break likely to happen? Yes. So they behaved about like I expected. Drew wandered around a little, Trent was super hyper, they were both chatting...

What I didn't expect was for TRENT to get scared - to the point we all left. With Drew crying that she wasn't scared and she wanted to go back to 'o-topi'. Then both kids were crying in the car. Drew because she was mad we left, Trent because he was just full of emotion!

So our drive home consisted of me sitting almost backwards holding both kids hands and consoling them. And Brent was just a little too smug since this went about just as he expected. #ugh #men

BUT...I think we redeemed our March goal yesterday! Stay tuned...{grin}

Proof that being right isn't always enjoyable

Aw!! Emmy get scared really easily from tv shows that I find to be totally benign (think the troublemakers on team umi zumi). I still haven't taken her to a movie because this is my fear. She'd actually be the one who was both scared and want to stay at the same time! Ha!

Oh no! I'm so sorry! I really didn't think it would be too scary! I feel responsible.
