|Babies at the Movies|
This past Thursday I attended the "Baby Pictures" screening of Eat, Pray, Love at the Legacy Place theater in Dedham. Baby M and I, along with two of my good Mama friends and their tots, sat in a theater amongst (approximately) 100 other moms and babies and took in the mediocre movie (I don't recommend rushing to see it - wait for the Netflix). But at $6 per Mama it was worth every penny. Hell, I would have paid $20 a ticket! But don't tell the theater that.
Once the theater doors open you, those with strollers checked them at the "Stroller Valet" right out side the theater. See the photo for the hilarity that was the stroller valet. When we entered we were politely greeted by the Baby Pictures Hostess who told us about the changing table area, and later went around asking about the dimness of the lights and the volume of the movie. We found our seat and settled in.

Overall it was a very pleasant experience, and one that I will take advantage of whenever I can. It helped that it was a noon showing, as that is Baby M's nap time and she slept through the entire thing. Actually I kind of wanted to sleep through the entire thing too!
