My family went to the “dollar movies” this past Friday night. Technically, it isn’t the dollar movies anymore since it now costs $2.50 per ticket. But old habits die-hard, so I still call it the dollar movies.
We saw Monsters University. I know–most people saw it during the Summer, but tickets weren’t $2.50 during the Summer. When you have 5 kids and like going to the movies, patience isn’t just a virtue–it is essential to keep you from going completely broke.
Getting there about 15 minutes early, we had to find ways to entertain ourselves. We talked about their day at school, but my kids soon became bored with that. We answered some of the trivia on the screen, but that didn’t entertain them long. Thankfully, the movie was getting close to starting.
That’s when my oldest daughter did this –
Okay–so this is a reenactment of what happened. At any rate, I ended up laughing about this the rest of the night.
I love that my kids love me. I love that they are growing and learning and becoming the people God created them to me.
And I love their silliness and how it can make me laugh and laugh.
Of all the blessings God has given me since salvation, my wife and kids are at the top of the list.
I am indeed a blessed man.
What have your kids (or grandkids or whoever) done recently to make you laugh?
