This week I know that taking your kids to events, like the Disney 3D Bluray screening of Cars 2 that we attended on Tuesday, can be a great deal of fun.
I know that 3D TV is getting better and better, and that movie-makers are taking full advantage of the new technology to enhance the film experience.
(I also know that, longing sighs notwithstanding, it's not at a pricepoint where we would consider it yet, especially given our renewed commitment to live simply wherever we can. Our current smallish 10-year-old TV meets our minimal viewing requirements, so an upgrade is unnecessary and wasteful right now).
I know that I was blown away by the attention to detail in the food, decorations and activities provided, and have a whole new respect for the work and planning that goes into these things.
I know that getting to go to an event in a penthouse was a huge thrill for all my kids, and me too :-)
I know that the 8-year-old thought that being tucked up in a luxurious bed while watching a 3D movie and having people bring food and drink to her was extraordinarily good form.
I know that my 2-year-old is a social butterfly, comfortable initiating conversations with unfamiliar adults and then talking their ear off for some minutes (and that she did so, happily, on Tuesday!)
I know that mostly people find this charming in a cute curly-haired toddler, but that it might not be *quite* so adorable if she's still doing it in 10 years' time.
And I know that special events can be a great thing if they are done well and used sparingly within the tapestry of a child's days.
