Today we had a first. Unexpected. We went to see The Spiderwick Chronicles. It was shaping up to be quite a good movie when we discovered that it was too scary for Coco and we had to leave.
It may have been pretty scary for Madge, too, because she wasn't too upset about going home. And her other choice - that she finish the movie while Coco and I wait in the hallway - didn't please her at all. So we'll try again another day, without the young'un.
And it wasn't the main bad creature that scared him. It was the house creature who seems basically good except when he gets cranky and turns into something green and bad. Maybe that character cut too close to home for Coco.
