Although Shauna has taken our little girl off to the movies a couple of times, and we watched Monsters Inc. in the gym at her school, I haven’t actually sat and watched a film together with them in an honest-to-goodness theatre before. Lucky for us, The Muppets came to town.
I’ve been pretty excited to see our fuzzy friends ever since I heard another Muppet movie was in the works. I’ve been more excited to share it with Audrey though.
The Muppet Show was one of my favourite things to look forward to when I was a kid and I was hoping some of that magic might rub off on Audrey.
And I think it did.
Every so often my gaze would drift to the that little body lost in the oversized seat she was sitting in. And every time she’d be popping back a bit of popcorn or sipping on an oversized straw with her eyes locked on Kermit or Miss Piggy. When she got restless she sat on my lap a bit and we watched together. And she laughed at the chickens, so she’s definitely my kid.
All in all, a pretty wonderful experience. And yeah, if you ever liked The Muppets go see this movie, it’ll make you happy.
