I decided to celebrate Dillon’s recent height achievement (5’0″ at 11 years old) and the fact that I had nothing to do tonight by putting Rose to bed, letting Charles go visit his buddies, and keeping D up past his bedtime to watch the Avengers.

I got the movie for Christmas (the four disk set) from my Dad/Secret Santa and it was the perfect present for me.  As it was literally the only thing on my list and I really, really would have been sad if I hadn’t gotten it.  I saw the movie in the theatre and LOVED it.  And even though Dillon isn’t huge into movies, I knew he would adore it, too.

It was his first super hero movie, but he loves comic books (despite being more into DC than Marvel) and the Avengers really doesn’t disappoint.  He loved it as much as I do, and he was laughing so loud during the “Hulk. Smash.” sequence that I was worried he was going to wake his sister.  But it was a lovely evening, and it really made my week to spend the time with him.  Before bed, Rose made me promise to watch Grease again with her tomorrow morning.  (I fast-forward through the drive-in parts and try to avoid questions about what is happening between Rizzo and Kinickey, though.)  I have to admit, it is really nice that the kids are past Dora the Explorer and Thomas the Tank Engine and into things I enjoy watching with them…

    “You know that ain’t no shit, we’ll be getting lots of tit in Greased Lightning!”
    “You know that I ain’t bragging, she’s a real pussy wagon!”

    Good clean entertainment for the kids! 🙂

    And to followup, being the only movie I’ve seen in a theater in the past 6 years, Avengers was FREAKIN AWESOME. Glad D liked it as well – I’ve since watched both the Ironman movies and will have to view the others as well to enjoy the rest of the Marvel Universe (I was never a comic nerd, so I didn’t have an allegiance to one or the other – Dark Horse Comics for me 😛 )
