Just needed to vent. Was going to write the local newspaper, but figured what good could it do. Probably be labeled as a child hater. Took son to see transformers. ( Man was it lllooooonnnngggggg) Sit in top row farest left. In walks late, after movie started, a family with 3 young kids. They have folks move in the top row to accomodate them so they can sit in the middle, there were other seats open lower but anyway....after about 5 minutes the youngest toddler starts whining. Loudly. Ok, been there did that, but generally at more age appropriate movies.....The mom takes the young child and I thought walked out with her. Instead, she stood at the foot of the stairs to watch the movie while her toddler proceeded to walk up and down the stairs the entire length of the movie, almost falling several times. Every so often the child would start yelling MO(M! MOM! At which point a slightly older sibling would be sent to the stairs to hush up her sister. DID I MENTION THIS MOVIE WAS LONG? OK, vent over. Feel slightly better. Good thing I was not "into" the movie.
I "get it" this toddler was BORED. A few times she actuallly laid down on the steps. What are some parents thinking?
