Our First Family MovieDate

To get away from all the Schiavo coverage and Barry Bonds absurdity, we attended our first family movie this midday. At one of the downtown SF art-house multi-plex theatres where we saw a few flicks this fall (including the delightful "Sideways"), they have a Thursday noon "Rattles and Reels" bring-your-baby-and-diaper-bags matinee. Today's showing was "Millions" - the new family marshmallow by Danny Boyle of "Trainspotting" and "28 Days Later" fame. A flawed, flip and forgettable bit of fluff. But it was a blast to get out and somewhat about. Maya ate through the previews and part of Act I. Then she snoozed on us through the remainder. Seeing all the other new 'rents struggle with their testy newborns (in general, kids suck) was also worthy of reflection. In short, Maya's a cool chick. And she didn't even mind that we didn't stay all the way through the credits.
