The 3 month old baby

34 posts in this topic

I could be in the minority, but am I the only one that thinks bringing a baby to a midnight premiere is a bit odd? Leave this situation out, why bring a baby to the movies (some would say at all) that late? And if you can't find a baby sitter do you REALLY have to see the movie at that very second?

I'll confess that my perspective could be skewed because I don't have any kids.

Depends on what news station you tune in to. The age has varied from 3 months to 6 years old.

I thought it was two different kids? I haven't been tuned all the way in.

yeah... I don't see the point of bringing your 3 month old, but I'm not surprised if that, in fact, happened... people are dumb...

I've seen parents do this. As a parents we didn't do this but I don't' have a problem with people that do. Some people don't have sitters (family in town that they trust) and the few times I've seen this at theaters the baby sleeps through the whole movie. It's not like a 3 month old knows where they are.

edit: I take much more issue with the 6 year old being there. A unseen by the parent, violent PG-13 movie at 12 pm. I don't understand how that child was even awake.

a packed midnight showing though?

I think I'd just wait a couple days and catch a Sunday matinee... just my opinion I guess...

Not sure why which day it is matters. Also I imagine parents would rather a late movie so they know the baby will sleep then a movie during the day when they are awake.

As a mom who went through a lot of baby blues but had a lot of great supporting family memebers around I guess i have a hard time judging parents who aren't doing anything that harms their kid (i think we all agree movie theaters are as safe as any where) trying to get out and have a few hours of enjoyement.

I actually talked to my friend who has a young kid about this. While midnight seemed weird to him too, he has brought his young child to movies with his wife before. At that age, their daughter just slept through the entire movie. She's never been much of a crier though I think, so.

My chaps are 4 and 6 (totally awesome, they can kick all of your asses) and I personally would not take them to a midnight premier. I took them to see mib3 in the theatre at around 7. They barely made it through. As a father I wouldn't take them to a midnight premier but I am a terrorist according to our government so what does it matter.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
