Do You Want To Go See The Lego Movie With Me, Son?

2 years, 11 months.

Dear Jack,

By the time I was your age, I had already seen a movie in the theatre: it was E.T. back in 1982.

But as for you, Mommy and I still haven’t taken you to experience a movie on the big screen.

Actually, we had planned to take you to see The Croods back in the spring, and then Planes during the summer, or Monsters University, but you never seemed impressed by the idea… maybe because of the instant gratification of Netflix instant streaming.

If only there was a kids’ movie about Batman that was going to be coming to theatres this winter…

After all, you dressed up as Batman for Halloween. (That means we let you wear your Batman pajamas out in public.)

Or maybe if there was a movie about Legos. You love to watch those amateur stop-motion videos on YouTube that feature Lego men.

Hmm…

And Ninja Turtles, too. You’re starting to think they’re cool.

What if… what if there was a movie that contained all these fun characters and it was a kids’ movie and I actually wanted to see it too?

You guessed it, this hypothetical movie actually exists and it’s coming out in February.

So, I think we should go see it. If Mommy and I haven’t taken you to your first movie in a theatre by then, I declare it shall be The Lego Movie.

I’ve been so hesitant about taking to you to see a movie because I don’t know what kind of attention span you might have for it; especially in public.

Here at the house, you’ve sat through entire movies before, but I think it had a lot to do with the fact you were able to avoid a nap because of it.

(Sometimes it’s just easier to let you watch a lazy movie with me on the couch instead of bothering with a nap. It works for both of us.)

Well, February is only three months away. You’ll be over 3 years old by then. I think you’ll be ready for it. Right?

I know I am.

 

Love,

Daddy
