This one happened by accident, but don’t almost all true advances happen that way?

Simon heard me asking our babysitter if she was available to work one evening so Patrick and I could go see a movie. When Simon heard, he latched on to what I said and immediately asked, “Go to a movie?”

Lucky for all of us, today was one of the Cinemark Movie Clubhouse movies. A dollar a head. Lots of screaming kids. It would work. Maybe.

In the past, when Simon has asked to go to a movie, he’s never lasted for more than half the movie. After half an hour, 45 minutes tops, he decides it’s time to “go home.”

Not today. Today we did it. He ate his popcorn. He drank his apple juice. He had one bathroom break. And he watched the whole movie!
