But not tonight.
Tonight, I got Maggie to sit down and watch her first full-length, grown up movie. From beginning to end. And what did we watch?
We skipped over the ROUS's in the fire swamp, and we put on the mute for the yelling and torture scenes (though she wouldn't let me skip them) scenes, and we skipped over the holocaust cloak because that's loud and scary. And there were lots of explanations before each fight scene and I explained to her how blood works in the movies and all of that.
But she watched it. Beginning to end.
And you know what she said to me as we were going upstairs to brush our teeth?
"When I'm big, I'll go to your class and sword-fight with you and your friends."
And I said, "Yes. You will."
I am the coolest dad ever.
