Some friends of mine stopped by and after visiting asked me if I’d like to go to the movies with them. I asked what was playing and they said, “The Secret Life of Pets II”. It’s not a movie that was on my “bucket list” but it was a movie I wouldn’t mind seeing. I’m learning that I love my family and childcare families dearly but some interaction with others is definitely appreciated….best is “safe” people that I don’t have to explain EVERYTHING to. My friends who came fit that category perfectly.
We have a little theater in a neighboring town, Sumner Iowa that has 99 cent movies. The movies aren’t typically there when they are first released but if we’re patient they come in a month or so like this one did. The concession stand is about as reasonably priced as we get for a movie theater.
If I have an itch to go to a movie, here is always the very first place I look to see what is showing.
So about the movie…CUTE. Very cute.
If you have a kiddo in your life, this is a great movie to take them to. The story is age old…someone needs to be rescued and someone does the rescuing. There is someone “bad” and the good guys triumph. We all love those stories don’t we??
I will admit to having to wipe a tear away when this was said, “You never know what life is going to throw at you. And you have two choices, run from it, or run at it. It’s a big day, and from this point on, nothing is going to be the same. But I’m going to be brave. And I’m going to help Liam be brave, because he’s my kid, and I want him to see the world. The big scary incredible world.”
I’ve had some of the very same feeling as of late…making a decision to be brave. I think the character in the movie is right. We, as people, have to decide to brave…it’s not always something that comes natural to us. So I wiped my tear and went on with the movie and concentrated on the friends I went to the movie with.
If you get a chance, give the show a watch. It’s fun and super cute and filled with lots of quotes that might go over the kids’ heads but mean something to you…king of like the “brave” quote did for me. Isn’t that great about kids’ movies nowadays..there is something for everyone in them. This one is no exception.
A big thanks to Kelli and Sophie for taking me. You are the best company!! I’ve thought a million times, if I could adopt you, I sure would!!
