we told carter today that if he was a good listener, he would get to go to a surprise. since he complied, and also as a side benefit to us kept his pull-up dry the entire day (small victories!) so we went to toy story 3 - his first movie in the theater. he did so great, and was so cute when the first preview came on! that is, until it was super loud, you know, like theaters are. near tears, but a good save with a quick hug - and some fruit snacks. only once did he start to get a little antsy, but overall he had an awesome time - and we did too!
i'm not gonna lie, though...it'll probably be a while before we do the whole movie-at-the-theater thing again. :-)
