My Cutie Pie Date
|Henry & me outside the theater.|
Our orthodontist and friend, Dr. Jeff, rents out a movie theater once a summer and gives his patients plus one friend, free passes to see a movie! The other children already had plans, so Hen & I went. It was nice because it's never just the two of us. Today we saw Ice Age 4. Very funny & very cute, and it actually has some good themes in it. I love it when they combine funny & helpful life lessons into children's movies.
Hopefully all the little people, and bigger little people who see it will pick-up on those themes: being a true friend; being yourself; making the right decision; saying you're sorry when you make a mistake; forgiveness; loving family members you might see as a little weird; the importance of family; parents having trouble letting go and letting their children grow up. That last one hit a little close to home. For me it's not a trust issue, it's a 'I'm not ready to accept that children are growing up' issue.

Make a date of it, you'll be glad you did! Thanks Dr. Jeff!!!
