so i headed to langley on wednesday to see 500 Days of Summer with ben, his friend caedmon, and liz. there weren't as many people in the theatre as i expected. we were there early because i was anticipating crowds but instead we had our choice of seats.
even though this movie is played for moms with kids and it's "ok" if your kid is crying...it doesn't stop you from feeling worked up about it. so when ben started to cry a very short time into the movie, i couldn't stay at my seat. well i could, but i just felt like i was still disturbing everyone. but other babies were crying here and there as well. nonetheless, i stood at the bottom and walked back and forth in the hall where i could still see the movie. ben cried out of control for awhile for no apparent reason (umm except maybe the darkness and the crazy huge screen? or maybe it was the fact he'd had 3 shots earlier that day?) and then finally fell asleep in my arms halfway through. i headed back to my seat. ben wasn't too much of a distraction from the movie, i barely noticed the other babies crying and i enjoyed seeing a movie without having to leave him behind.
next week is julie and julia...we'll see if i make it to that.
