Movie watching 101

My 8 year old son is just like me when it comes to movie watching. If there is something suspensful or potentially embarrassing for a character he covers his eyes or hides under a pillow or blanket and plugs his ears, or sometimes just gets up and runs from the room. He also giggles and laughs continually throughout a movie; sometimes it's more fun to watch him than to watch the movie! Occasionally while riding in the car he will burst into laughter over seemingly nothing. When questioned about it he will say that he was thinking of a certain part of a movie and then try and describe it to you all the while giggling uncontrollably. He certainly has the art of movie watching down!

Yesterday I took my kids to see The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything. We love Veggie Tales and thoroughly enjoyed the movie. My son was sitting beside me and was his usual entertaining self: giggling, plugging his ears, squirming in his seat. The only problem was he didn't have a blanket to hide under and he couldn't get up and run out of the theater, so to compensate, at one point when he had his ears plugged. he yells out "Mom, quick! Put your hands over my eyes!"

Oh, how cute!

We almost watched that one yesterday, but James and I wanted to see Enchanted more. We told the kids that we'd end up buying the Veggie Tales movie anyway if we couldn't see it in the theater. We love Veggie Tales!

It sounds like your son and my Professor would get along well!

Cute little video ; )

I think it's so fun that he wants you to cover his eyes

How funny! What a giggle-box, he and b-bop would get along great!

We went to see that movie too, the whole family. So fun.

So, were you able to pull your hands from your ears to lend them to him??He,he:D

Hilarious! I liked the movie, but my four year old did not. Ah well, he'll get over it!

We saw the preview for the Veggie Tales movie, and I told my 12 year old son I wanted to see it. He just looked at me like I was a lunatic!

Oh well, I tried, tee hee! :D

That giggling could be contagious!

Your son sounds fun to watch during a movie. :-)

Hee hee!

I can't wait to see that movie!

Alas, no movie theater in our wee tiny town!
