Let's go to the movies

Maya had her first movie-theatre-movie experience this weekend. We took her to the new Winnie the Pooh movie. She was so excited, from the moment we entered the theatre to getting her popcorn to finding our seats. She sat happily in her seat, with her blue slushie and kid sized popcorn, and I don't believe she blinked for the whole show. While the 1 hr movie length was perfect for her... it was just a tad too long for mommy and daddy. Every other kids movie (ie: Cars, Toy Story, Shrek, etc) has something funny and redeeming to keep the parents interested, but this movie was D.U.L.L. DH even fell asleep as some point. Still, Maya had a ball and declared it the best movie she'd ever seen.
That morning, I wasn't in the mood to think about choosing my outfit for the matinee, so I opened my closet door and asked Maya to pick something. She zoomed right in on this floaty polka-dot dress, and the "little girl" necklace. Since the movie was for 2pm in the afternoon, I didn't want to look too dressed up. So I swapped out the bright tangerine sash for a more subtle cognac belt. The outfit probably could've used a touch of colour, but overall, I was pretty happy with the look. Maybe I should let Maya pick out my clothes more often!
