Sadly, the word “NO” is becoming an increasingly ambiguous term in our household. After devouring a bagel like a ravenous jungle cat, Savannah decided that it was only fair that her Daddy should share his few precious remaining chips with her. Daddy however, did not think that this was a good idea at all.
“Honey, these are my chips. You’ve had breakfast and just finished a bagel.”
“But Daddy, I NEED CHIPPIES”
I placed the tiny plate of chips into the center island of the kitchen. Savannah used her Go Go Gadget arms to snatch her first chip.
I was hoping to enjoy these chips while putting some groceries away.
Next, I opened up a cabinet and placed the chips up on a shelf.
I thought this would solve the problem once and for all. I ran out to the car to get one last bag of groceries and came back to my 3-year-old, crunching yet another chip while elongating herself off at the top of her stool.
I kept looking for higher perches as she followed me around the kitchen with her trusty stool.
In the end, I did get two chips, but it was clear that Savannah has the upper hand.
A special thanks to AMC Theatres:
I have called, written and e-mailed, but they have made no effort to contact me.
They could care less about how many times you have to hustle your 3-year-old birthday girl in and out of the theater while they show MURDEROUS movie previews for Dracula, Killer Storms, Exodus and a Russian Mob Movie with Denzel.
With each fresh set of murders, we hustled Maddie out of the theater while all of our complaints fell on deaf ears. Mommy kept Mads roaming the halls as the bodies stacked up high on the screen.
After those gentle previews, they gave us some free movie passes and started the film 45 minutes late. But wait, there’s more!!
The movie is almost too blurry to watch – Then someone comes in and says, Planes is not available any longer, you can only view the movie in 3D. Maddie, get those those glasses so you can witness murder in 3d!
All this for my daughter’s first movie experience – Thanks AMC, we will always go out of our way to find any other theater. Thanks for the lousy customer service and complete disregard for small children – you must be very proud.
