Yesterday Elizabeth and I went to the cinema. We've been a couple of times now and it's really great! The Odeon cinema company have these special screenings each week for parents with babies, so it doesn't matter too much if Elizabeth cries. The lights are kept low (rather than off) and the volume is lower than usual. This week's film was The Adjustment Bureau, starring Matt Damon.
Elizabeth was really well behaved. She was quite hungry when we arrived so I fed her shortly after we got settled. She was then more than happy to sit on my lap, either watching the screen, playing with her rattle or chewing her hand (or mine!) She had a sleep towards the end of the film and was good as gold.
What the cinema do with these screenings for mums with babies is really fantastic. It's great that I still get to do things like that now I have Elizabeth and it's even better that Elizabeth doesn't seem to mind :)
