Should Have Been a Lesson Learned

Lucas and I went to see Monsters vs. Aliens on Friday. 3D movies have come a long way since the last time I saw one with the paper glasses, one eye red and the other blue. We were handed black plastic sunglasses, very Drew Carey-like, and headed on into the theater. Lucas was excited for about half a minute and then freaked a bit as 3D hamburgers went flying by his head. He yanked the glasses off and loudly announced to a full theater that he wasn't staying. I told him I paid $16 to see a matinee and he needed to put those glasses back on his face and give the movie a chance. And he did. Which is amazing, 'cause he can be a very stubborn and vocal kid when the mood strikes. It was such a fun movie, and it was so darn cute to see his little hand come up to swat things away in air in front of him. Except, he decided that he just loves those 3D glasses and he doesn't want to take them off. He put them back on as soon as he woke up yesterday, and wore them non-stop, even though I kept telling him he needed to take them off. We pulled in to Costco and he tells me, "I don't feel right., I 'fink I might be sick." Yeah, no kidding, you've been wearing those funky glasses all morning. He hops out of the car and barfs all over the parking lot. "Hmm" he says, "tastes like lemonade. I feel better now." But he still doesn't take the glasses off. Dude...boys are gross.

If you would like to put those glasses to good use, try searching the internet for some 3-d graphics or short cartoon clips that he can actually use his glasses for. It gives him time during the day to actually wear them without wanting to wear them all day.
