Movie Time – Mom Time

I take my kids to a movie for some me, Maddi and Jordan time.  Just the three of us.

Maddi is elated to carry a bucket of popcorn half her size.  She totters into the theater balancing the treat with great care telling me, "I do it, Mom.  I can do it."  Jordan walks behind us talking to himself. 

I hear him say, “This is so cool!”

Turning around to acknowledge him I see his eyes fascinated by the large screen in front of us.  He glances at me dismissing any need for comment and says, “Mom, I’m just talking to my dad.  I told him this is so cool.  Did my dad like movie theaters?” 

“Your dad loved going to the movies’” I tell him.

“And did he like popcorn?” Jordan asks.

“Yes!” I respond as if letting Jordan in on a big secret.  “And he loved popcorn…just like you!”

Coincidentally the movie is about heroes.  A topic we all connect to.

Later that afternoon during nap time, Jordan gives me a strong hug around my neck saying, “Mom, guess what?”

“What?” I ask.

“I love you,” he tells me.

“I love you, too,” I tell him.

“I love you most-est!” he says.

“I love you more!” I whisper.
