I’m still not exactly sure what made me think that I should take my just turned two-and-a-half year old son to a movie. I mean, this kid bounces off the walls and just never seems to sit still. Ever. Period. At two, going on three, his prime objective in life is to just run (well, when it’s not to torture his little brother) and certainly not to sit still for any given period of time. But, there was something in me this time that thought, OK, let’s give it a go and see if he will watch a full movie. In my favor was the fact that Gnomeo and Juliet is in 3D – he love love loves his sunglasses so I thought we might have it made in the shade (pun intended) with the 3D glasses.
