A Conor Breakthrough With A Little Help From Shrek

Conor made a major breakthrough today with a little help from Shrek and some careful planning by Mom and Dad.  Conor has not gone to a theater to see a movie since we took him to see Cars and left 5 minutes into that movie.  That was about 4 years ago and Conor has not wanted to go into a theater in the time since. 

In fact Conor does not generally want to go into crowded environments like malls but we noticed he had been improving lately and we were waiting for an opportunity to try our luck with another movie. Recently he has been watching an old Shrek video so we had decided to give it a go with the new Shrek movie.

We waited until SHReK The Final Chapter had been in theaters a few weeks and we went to an early showing this Sunday afternoon. Before arriving we ate Uncle Burgers at A & W, one of Conor's favorite meals,  so he had a full belly. Then we arrived just before the showing of other movie previews. We picked seats at the back corner and things could not have gone any better. Conor laughed quite a bit during the movie and smiled though out.  He enjoyed every minute. We started out with a Dad arm around him but he did not need that either after a bit.

Conor deserves full credit for the progress he has made. Mom and Did helped a bit. That's what parents do and we felt great over the result. Great? We are ecstatic. And a thank you to all those behind SHReK  The Final Chapter for a helping hand with our Buddy.  

We hope to make another try with Toy Story 3 after its been out a few weeks.

A breakthrough, I LOVE IT! Am a bit jeolous because we have not been to see Shrek yet.

Way to go Conor!

After reading about his success, I took my daughter this afternoon. I don't think she sat still for more than a couple of minutes, and watched perhaps 10 minutes of the movie in all. She was however very happy during the entire thing.

great. we are giving Shrek a try today My main concern is the 3D glasses. We've done OK on non-3D movies lately, but 3D glasses seem to get launched about 10 rows down at some point during the show. The last time, some poor old man thought the ceiling was falling on him.
