Madeline's First Movie
David and I took Madeline to her first movie today. She did really good (of course a bucket full of popcorn didn't hurt!) David and I enjoyed getting out to a movie and were actually excited about the prospect of a whole new world of family activities that opened up to us. Madeline behaved well and responded appropriately to the movie's scenes.
I do have to say that we watch *very little* television at home. Consequently, Madeline is exposed to very little violence, even comedic violence. I have to say that I was proud of Madeline. There were a few comedic violent scenes. (1) There was an old lady that kept beating up on the animals and (2) okay, this was a bit closer to nature, but the Alpha and Beta lions fought and Madeline kept saying, "No, No!!!!" during each of these scenes. Good girl, Maddie! Keep it up!
