Sex and the Sippy Cup

So over the weekend the girls and I headed out for a little girls night. Enough of our husbands getting together 2+ times a week for golf. It was our turn. We decided to have a nice dinner at PF Changs (Orange Peel Chicken? NOM!) With girly beverages (The Pink Bellinis were super yummy!) followed with a night at the movies. Of course we chose to see Sex and the City 2. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m not a die-hard, seen every episode, kind of girl and I liked it better than the first one. Perhaps because it was a bit more theatrical? And the rugby?polo? players didn’t hurt much either!

But one of my favorite parts of the movie (don’t worry, no spoilers here, was during a particularly steamy scene. During which the 4 YEAR OLD LITTLE GIRL sitting right behind me started yelling “I CAN’T SEE! I CAN’T SEE!” Seriously? I kid you not. There was a little girl in the theater. Brought by her (I assume) parents, and sister. 4 years old (I’m guessing here… but I was with 2 friends that are moms and they said she was probably only like 3 or 4 years old) and they thought taking her to see SEX and the City was a good idea? She was yelling because Like the good mom that she was, she was covering the girl’s eyes. WTF?!?!

This particular favorite was only topped by another where I became completely distracted by the fact she was prancing in the aisle and kept hitting my seat, jarring me forwards and backwards. But rest assured, there is more. During one of the said gallops across the seats she proceeds to knock over a pop- spilling it alover and I assume losing her balance. Well, it was only natural then that she would GRAB. MY. HEAD! Hello? Anyone else see a problem here?

Overall she was very well behanved and only had a few breakout moments, but knowing that there was an inappropriately aged little girl behind me, made the whole experience a bit uncomfortable.

Parenting: FAIL.


  1. I just have to say WOW. I can't believe some people. I would have complained to the management. That is just not the place fir a toddler to be!

  2. Oh my goodness who in their right mind would bring their child so see Sex in the City they really should have been watching her more carefully then they were sucks you weren't able to enjoy your movie in peace.

  3. Lord. I can't believe you didn't move. Yes, it's a passive aggressive way to make a point, but it also assures you don't get grubby pop hands in your hair.
