The Movies...with 10 kids

Last night we took all of our children plus one extra to the movie theatres to see "Coraline." What an experience. Not in a good way.

I know it's Brice and Albert's birthday tomorrow but we are a bit behind (suprise, suprise) and were actually still celebrating Jackson's birthday. So we loaded up the new ride and took everyone plus the neighbor's kid out to the theatres.

After we made the requiste trip to get candy and soda to sneak in the diaper bag (to avoid the ungodly cost of theatre snacks) we arrived just on time. The cool thing about having so many kids is the fact that you can just hand the usher a wad of tickets and they don't even bother to count how many kids are walking past into the movie (yes, we were honest about that and did buy the correct amount of tickets).
Alexandria immediately began whinning for her contraban candy and wasn't very quiet when opening it. We had to sit wayyyyy down at the bottom so that we could be ready to make a quick escape if/when a toddler/baby screamed.

The movie was only so/so...it was visually interesting but seemed to drag. Or maybe it was just our girls who made it seem that way. All the boys behaved like angels. They watched the movie quietly, peacefully and nicely...The girls...not. so. much.

Alexandria whinned, cried, and complianed constantly. The more stern we became in our efforts to quiet her, the louder she protested. Sydney cried each time she ran out of food. When the popcorn was gone, she cried. When we gave her gummy bears, she chewed them up and spit them out on her clothes. She screamed when her soda was gone. She screamed when she couldn't sit with me while I was nursing Kambree, who had also begun crying. Finally I put her on my lap and passed Bree to Albert. Even still, she squirmed, squealed, whinned, and kept arching her back trying to get down. I kept scraping up gummy bears from her clothes and putting them back in her mouth. Gross, I know...but desperate times...
Meanwhile, Alex was still crying and fussing over similar issues...she dropped her straw...needed more popcorn. I swear, we just kept feeding them more and more to shut them up.
Finally, mercifully, the movie ended. We took them home, put them to bed. when we got them up this morning, Sydney had diaherrea and Alexandria had thrown up. Too much popcorn & gummy bears?

And that would be one of the reasons we didn't take the kids to movies until they were all older. You're a brave woman!

Ahhh, brings back memories of an ill-fated movie we took all of the kids to see many years ago (pre twins but with a foster baby). Keith slept through the whole movie like an angel but that foster baby screamed through-out. UGH!

You are a brave mama!
