Wesley left Sunday (Father’s Day) to attend Paw Paw’s funeral in Mississippi. We had planned on seeing Toy Story 3 Sunday evening, but understandably had to move that to when he returned. So Tuesday, we dropped off Philip with a wonderful family from church, the Coalsons, and headed to the movies.
Since the day Wesley found out we were pregnant, he has been looking forward to taking his child to his first real movie. Wesley loves going to the movies. Notice that I didn’t write: Wesley loves the movies. I wrote: Wesley loves going to the movies.
He loves the popcorn, Cokes, previews, everything about going to the theater and he couldn’t wait to share this experience with his child. To be completely honest, I was shocked that he wanted me to go along with him and Jackson! But I was so excited as well to share in this fun time.
We got to the theater VERY early. Wesley reminded me that was a good thing so we had time to get our popcorn, look at all the preview posters and get the best seat. Once settled in, we all enjoyed the show. Wesley and I got a little emotional – if you are a parent and have seen the movie, you understand.
Jackson was in heaven because his favorite obsession – a trash truck – made several appearances throughout the movie. I don’t think it counts as being disruptive when a three year shouts, “Mommy, it’s a green trash tuck with two persons on the back” during a movie, is it? Too cute for me!
It was a special night and a great way not only to celebrate Father’s Day..oh, and also, our 8TH Anniversary! Not very romantic, but oh well! That’s the way it is - Happy Anniversary, Wesley!
