This past weekend, the kids wanted to go to a movie. So I had them search online for a movie theater near us that had a matinee for the movie they wanted to see at a time that worked for us.

When searching oldest daughter said, What’s the name of the theater where we saw Like Mike?  (We don’t go to that theater often… did you guess that already?)

I told her the name of the theater.

A few seconds later, she said, “Mom! There’s no theater called TINKLETOWN!”

Silly girl. 🙂
