ledger's first movie
so many guys are excited when they become a father to have a first catch with their sons, or teach them how to play different sports. not me. i have been excited to show my son movies! well, i finally got the chance to take him to the movie theater for the first time! he's been old enough to enjoy a movie and handle himself in the theater for a while now, but i wanted his first theater experience to be connected with a special movie. one finally came out that i thought would be a great first one: the peanuts movie! we've been talking it up for the past couple weeks, watching the preview a few times to get him excited about it. he's been asking what's different about seeing a movie at the theater compared to on the tv. i told him that the screen in the theater is as big as a house! this totally blew his little mind and got him really eager to check it out.
the day finally came, so diana and i took him to the theater and he loved it! he was really amazed at the size of the screen and he kept wanting to go up and touch it! fortunately we went to an early show the second week it was out so the place was empty except another young family with kids who were just as chatty as ledge was. at about the 45 minute mark he got a little antsy and was wondering if it was almost over, but once snoopy, woodstock and the other birdy friends were back on the screen he was into it again. the movie was fun, but the experience of being able to share my love with my son was an amazing experience i'll never forget!
