Speaking of movies, I had to leave a movie early for the first time ever this afternoon. We had taken my son (almost 5) to see Wreck It Ralph, which he's been wanting to see for weeks. As always, I read reviews online and looked at Common Sense Media to see if there was any cause for concern. DH and I agreed that this one seemed fine.
Turns out, it wasn't. :-/ Poor guy, he got upset pretty early on in the movie and never really recovered. So we decided to leave about 45 minutes into it. When we got home this evening, he turned out to have a fever... So I'm thinking that he was actually more sick than scared, but who knows for sure? He went right to bed and fell asleep instantly, so hopefully tomorrow is a better day. Either way, I sure wish that I had planned today differently -- I'm definitely having a guilty evening. :-(
Have you ever left a movie early?
