Baby's Day Out

HAPPY NEW YEAR everybody!
This one is about my nephew's very first theater experience. He just turned one year old on the 20th of December. Well, we had all gone to see 'Tanmatra', (Mohanlal movie, directed by Blessy...very good) yesterday because it was new year and all. We had this big bag with us, my nephew's emergency pack...diapers, feeding bottle, clothes, napkins, you name it and it is there in his big pink bag. We were hoping to get seats close to the exit because we were expecting him to cry and make a fuss atleast five times in between the movie, but unfortunately we couldn't get those seats. Infact we got the corner most seats. Whew...we were kinda anxious about how the next 3 hours would turn out, I mean, baby's first movie and all, so you never know.
6.20 pm The much awaited advertisements started...advertisements without which the pleasure of watching a movie in a theater is never complete. Sarees that take you to the heights of professional success, Sarees for the modern women, brand after another, seen it so many times I know it by heart every move everything!
My nephew sat awstruck through all this...taking in all the massive display of sound and colour...haai! We thought, wow, it is good that he is enjoying himself...well, movie started and it was very interesting. But guess, my one year old cool dude didn't think so...5 minutes later the dude was fast asleep. He slept so soundly that he woke up way after the movie was over, when we almost reached home ie.
Now, we got back home and everybody was really tired and all. 11.30pm getting ready to retire, but my nephew was as bright and fresh as ever. Gosh..! haha..can't blame him really, he had just woken up from a 3 hour siesta.

So that was baby's first movie experience...go to the theater, watch all the advertisements, rest well throughout the movie and then wake up fresh as ever, ready to taken on the world!
