Movie Time Fun

Posted on: January 3, 2010

As we – Grandma Sara, Grandad Greg, Borys, Niko and I – sat around our living room last night debating about what movie to rent from Rogers on Demand, I soon found out that even though the majority wanted to rent one that I had already seen (Julie and Julia – which upon watching the pieces that I saw of it for the second time, made me realize this was the movie that inspired me to start this blog), it really didn’t matter because Niko had other plans anyway.

He wanted to be heard loud and clear; he wanted to overcome the volume of the movie by showing off the power of his own lungs.  Now, we can only sit and watch the movie with a crying Niko for so long, until we have to admit to the fact that we just can’t follow the movie as the distraction of the crying baby is just too much. Even though we attempt to sooth him by bouncing him on our knees, rocking him in our arms, burping him, feeding him, etc. at some point the only way for everyone to actually follow the movie is for us to pause, rewind and for Niko to be brought elsewhere until he calms down. And seeing as I was the one to bring him elsewhere and calm him down, it was a good thing I had already seen the movie as it was easy for me to just jump back in at any point, and fortuitous of us to have rented one that I had already seen, otherwise watching the movie would have been really slow going: having to pause (and probably rewind) every time little Niko did a shout out!

Note: Pictures 1 and 3) Niko enjoying the comforts of Grandad’s arms. Picture 2) Grandma multi-tasking: watching a movie and knitting socks for Audra.

[…] Comment! There’s nothing quite like enjoying the comforts of being held by Gramma and Grandad. […]
