Movie Madness

This weekend we decided to take the girls to see a movie. We chose Oceans because we figured that was something both Miss H and Baby B could enjoy. So we loaded up the diaper bag and headed out to our local theater.

Miss H LOVES the movies, probably because she knows she gets to eat her favorite snack...popcorn. We have taken Baby B to movies before and she behaved well. I had no reason to believe that she would behave otherwise. WRONG. The little cutie could not keep her mouth shut. She has recently discovered her voice and felt that everyone in the theater needed to hear it. She was also wriggling all over the place trying to grab Miss H's hair, popcorn, and straw.

So out we went.

I purchased a veritable buffet of snacks for myself and we sat on a bench in the movie theater hallway. One of those snacks happened to be Twizzlers (one of my favorites!) Baby B was feasting on her favorite snack, Puffs. At one point she reached for one of the Twizzlers. I figured, what the heck? And let her have at it. She was just playing with it, bending it in different directions, looking at it with amazement.

I watched the people going into and coming out of the theaters. A mom and dad with four kids all dressed nicely. Couples on dates. A lady with a large Coke in one hand and a large Popcorn in the other using her tongue to pull the popcorn into her mouth because both hands were full. I love people watching. I was lost in my thoughts and observations. It was actually really relaxing.

Choke! Gag! Bleck! Cough, cough, cough!

Snap back to reality!! Baby B is gagging herself with the Twizzler! Whilst I was daydreaming, my little baby decided she liked the taste of a cherry Twizzler and was quietly gumming it before she tried to shove it down her throat.

She was fine. It was over before it really got started, but I still feel guilty. Chalk this up as a big Mommy fail!

Oh, girl, doesn't always go that way, Lol! I love movie popcorn--I cannot wait to take Bella to see Toy Story 3!

Oh no, the almost choke! It happens to us all.

I'm a people watcher too! I'm sorry your little loud mouth couldn't be in the theater. My oldest was a loud one too. Sorry about the Twizzler choking though!

Kmama said...

Aww, poor Baby B! It's kind of funny though, seeing as she decided she wanted to eat it!!

I'm glad she's okay!

I give you an A for effort! I wouldn't even have the guts to try to take the girls to a movie.

I think we have all been guilty of that and much worse! I'm glad she is OK. Now, on to the hard part - forgiving yourself.
