Am sure other parents do this as well, whether they announce it out loud or not…I remember all of MLM’s milestones…maybe not the date but the age he was when he did particular things.
Today he achieved another milestone which doesn’t appear in any doctor’s chart but pretty much everyone around him seems to have gone through it- watching a 3D movie. See? Silly.
If I had my way I wouldn’t have wanted to have him watch a 3D movie right now, thinking it could be overwhelming, he could end up breaking the glasses or just getting disinterested in seeing things hazy on screen but no…the little man doesn’t disappoint. He is predictable and predictably unpredictable all at once!
He shrugged off the glasses since they were too big for his face and he couldn’t be bothered to keep them up on his nose. But at the same time, he just couldn’t let the opportunity go to see Toothless and Hiccup and all the D-R-A-G-O-N-S do their thang either! So he watched the 3D movie without any glasses and had a blast!
That will teach me to not underestimate him. Of course he managed to get more goodies out of us at the end of the movie as well so that bit wasn’t unforeseen 🙂
But we will wait for more fun stuff to come our way and hope that the 2D way doesn’t become a thing of the past too quickly.
