What NOT to do...

Have you ever taken your kid(s) to a late night movie at a theater because you didn't want to go through the hassle of getting a babysitter, thinking that they would "just sleep through it" and they DON'T?!

Wish I could have seen that one coming!

Now we know, right? Now we know that babysitters are a key to my sanity. Now we know that no matter how well I think I know my boys, they are just full of surprises. Now I know that if I want to spend any quality time with my husband, it's not gonna happen with the boys around (at least not at this point of our lives). Now I know that it's truly, truly embarrassing to deal with fussy kids in a room where ZERO talking is expected, and how embarrassing it is to have to walkout, across and in front of people, to exit said room. Maybe having Monkey kick someone's head on the way out.

Needlesstosay. No quality time was achieved.

What. So. Ever.

I have so been there. LOL. Good Luck next time. Ask family to babysit. They will usually do it for some chocolate cookies, in my experience.

Oh honey! :) Did you get to see any of the movie? If not, you need to get a babysitter and go see it! It was SO GOOD!
