First Movie – Toy Story 3

It was his first time to the theater, you see.  And I was worried – all kinds of variables playing out in my mind.  He’ll get bored.  He’ll want to get down or go out or make a fuss or meltdown.  All those worst-case scenarios.


He was amazing.  Nary a peep, or a fidget, or a whimper or a whine.  He was fabulous the entire time.  And fascinated. 

Oh, and his parents?  Totally and utterly ooey-gooey in love with him all over again.  And like two kids ourselves, all excited and bouncing and proud…seeing older kids melting down instead.  (sigh, double sigh)  The only words he uttered the entire time were “me see Buzz?” to which I said “soon!”  And then?  Just total amazement and 2-year old rapture at seeing his favorite characters on such a big screen.

Never mind the blurry pics…you get the gist.

I won’t even tell you how AB and I handled the end of the movie.  Ok I will.  Like a couple of cry-baby criers, that’s how. 

Meanwhile?  Our little boy is something else.

That's a memory you'll never forget! Jacob was about Quints age when we took him to see his first movie which was Fly Away Home. He like Quint, didn't move or make a sound, he just enjoyed every minute of it! We own the movie now and watch it just to walk down memory lane and remember that fun day.

I love it! I am glad he did so well and I love that you captured it on film. We did not make it to the theater so we will have to catch it on DVD this fall.

Toy Story 3 was my youngest daughter's first experience at the theater too and she did great as well. She was so excited for Woody and Buzz and Jessie! And I too cried at the end of the movie. Very poignant!! So you're among friends with that.

How exciting and fun!

You had the same worries we had the first time we took our almost 3 year old to see her first movie. We were worried for nothing as she well :-) Her second movie was a daddy and daughter date to see Toy Story 3. I was told she did very well and they had a great time. Can't wait until it comes out on DVD so I can see the movie myself. LOL!! I'll be sure to have a box of tissue by my side.

We loved that movie too! (And I also cried at the end -- sheesh) It was Ro and Ree's first movie.
