I have a lot to be thankful for these days.
So much so that I can’t think about it most of the time because it scares me half to death.
It was a crazy day and we hardly took any pictures, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
I’ll take hectic, exhausting and messy any day.
Going to the movies is something Corey and I used to do almost every weekend before we had kids, so I have been waiting for the day I could take Cooper. Really, I just wanted an excuse to see all the new kid movies, but I digress…
Taking your kid to the movies is a nerve wracking experience though because you don’t know how it’s gonna go down. He could either sit still and get into the movies or act like a complete maniac running up and down the stairs trying to eat popcorn off the floor. Or both.
We’d been planning to take him to see Secret Life of Pets for a few weeks, but something else always got in the way. I was adamant about us doing something special together before baby brother arrived though. Cooper probably won’t remember this when he gets older, but I sure will.
So on a rainy Sunday afternoon we loaded up my purse with snacks and headed to the movies.
And he did so good! Besides getting a little antsy during the incredibly long previews and the last 10 minutes of the movie, he just sat and ate his weight in popcorn. At one point another kid behind us started crying and Coop looked at me and said, “Why dat kid cwyin, mommy? He no wike da movie?”
It’s a good thing we went to the movies when we did though since my water ended up breaking in the middle of the night and I had Cameron the next morning. It’s crazy how things work out! Hopefully the next time is a little less eventful. We’re going to see SING soon, so fingers crossed it goes as well as the first time (ya know, without the whole delivering a baby part at the end)!
We got the chance to partner with Einsteins again, and after how good their last promotion was (we were actually sad to see they don’t offer the twist and dip anymore. Bring that ish back guys!), I just couldn’t say no.
This time they are rolling out three new cracked egg breakfast sandwiches that you can try for FREE on August 16th with any purchase. For every egg sandwich they give away, No Kid Hungry will donate a meal to a kid in need. You can basically give and recieve for free all at the same time. It doesn’t get much better than that, except when you taste how good the sandwiches are.
We opted to try the french toast egg sandwich (applewood bacon, maple shmear and cheddar cheese on a fresh-baked french toast bagel) and just took off the bacon and it was so good. I’ll definitely be back on Tuesday for my free one because #preggoproblems. Coop saw me taking pictures and had to get in on the action. That and he probably wanted me to hurry up so he could have “just one sip a juice. Ok, mommy?“Download your voucher for a free sandwich HERE, or go in before August 16th and a coupon will print right at the bottom of your receipt.
