Something I’ve heard from many parents is that they don’t get to see any movies for the first year of parenthood. Maybe it’s because I’m a movie buff, but I’ve made a concerted effort to keep movies in my life despite having a one year old. In fact, I saw Gravity in theaters after Maddie’s first month (taking turns with Valerie to see it on alternate nights). Sure, I only watched one more movie in 2013 (Bernie), which was…okay), but in 2014 I’ve so far averaged at least 3 movies a month. I’ve watched 39 unique movies, 7 in theaters (Guardians of the Galaxy) twice). Pretty good, I’d say.
I think I’ll watch number 40 this afternoon.
