It is winter.
I swear my palms are already sweating at the thought of being locked up indoors with the little treasures for 2 whole weeks.
My kids love the Kung Fu Panda series. They've just about worn out the first two movies.
Thankfully, the universe has taken perfectly-timed pity on me (or them)....
Kung Fu Panda 3 is out now on iTunes
You can download it here.
I had promised Mstr7 that I would take him to the movie when it came out in cinemas.
I totally forgot.
Unfortunately, he did not forget.
Allow me to use Kung Fu Panda 3 to demonstrate how that all went down......
Today's iTunes release of Kung Fu Panda 3 not only saves my poorly parenting, but it also pleases me greatly for providing me with an in-home viewing option - my preferred method when kids are involved.
Top 10 Reasons Why I Prefer In-Home Viewing:
- No brushing of hair
- No putting on of make up
- or daytime clothes
- No whispered threats to shut up / sit down while maintaining a loving smile in case anyone is looking
- No refereeing fights over who got one more kernel of outrageously over-priced popcorn
- About that - no paying for over-priced refreshments
- No 38 trips to the toilet....before the main movie even starts
- or 129 trips during the movie (they never ever need to go when you watch a movie at home)
- No judgy eyes from more responsible parents for my consuming wine at a kids flick
- The ability to pause and rewind if the fighting and bickering gets too loud and I have to take my attention away from the wine and movie to intervene.
I plan to put this gem of a movie on repeat throughout the 2 weeks of winter school holidays.
I expect we'll all be quoting the movie by the time school returns.
Obviously I'll have to lie to their teachers about being incapacitated or the like, to excuse my 2 weeks of digital parenting.
Don't judge. Just join me - get your iTunes download of Kung Fu Panda 3.
