It Takes an Iron Man and a Woman

The esposo and I had another round of our #NotYourTypicalDateNight series last Friday. It was a movie date, showing no less than the Iron Man. I’m not sure when our last cinema date was, I’m guessing years ago. I do not know that a movie pass costs P200 on a regular cinema now. #MissingMyMTRCBPass. Oh well, what makes this date not the typical one was the fact that we bought our last-full-show’s tickets a night before the screening. We wanted to be responsible parents 1st and sneak like teenagers later, so we secured a ticket before hand. lol 

So that Friday, after office, we went home as usual. Not giving the kids a hint, we performed our usual parental routine, which includes eating dinner and giving them night-bath, among others. We wanted to put the kiddos to bed as early as possible so we could be on time with our 20:25 movie date, but our Uno might have felt something and stayed awake after all the bedtime stories. When I realized we were running late, I decided to be honest with her. I told her, “Baby, go to sleep, Nanay and Tatay will go out and watch movie”. She said, “Okay Nanay, go out”. I never thought my girl was not as hard to deal with as my parents way back. Haha 

So off we go to the movie house. Mi esposo was still anticipating for an extra scene after the full length movie, so we waited until all the credits rolled up, maybe about 5 minutes and true enough a bonus scene came out. It was a little over 5 seconds and says nothing about what he's anticipating, a possible part 4. He was frustrated.

The movie was great, btw, funny and all. 


The photo above was taken at the parking. The esposo was astonished by the look of our car that he can’t resist say it out loud, he even took a photo of it. He never took any of his gorgeous wife’s (ehem) stunning (ehem, ehem) OOTDs mind you. I playfully squeezed myself in to destroy the moment. lol

I laugh to myself when I saw the photo. I thought, was this an act of responsible parents? Would a loving father be mesmerized by the charm of a toy? And would a caring mother breaks all the fun?

That’s what I like best about “us”, we’re parents yet we’re also children.

  1. Well that's what makes any relationship still burn! When we're still silly and child-like with our partners and laugh like we're in high school then that's healthy! :)

  6. Yay, 200 na ang movie pass? Hay, the last we watched a movie, I can't remember when lol, the movie pass was just 100 pesos. Anyway, I'm so inggit because you can have a movie date. We are working overtime kasi with our MTOs. I am honestly so tired. If I just don't love crocheting maybe I have already quit na.

  18. My guess is there will be a part 4 of Iron Man... Feel ko lang hehehe... Glad you enjoyed your date. Married couples should always do that in whatever season in their marriage, even if they are already old. They should always have time for just the 2 of them, kasi time will come when the kids would move out eh...

All i know was that I was already pregnant then and my baby inside my tummy was jumping and kicking because of the loud sounds he hears. hahaha! anyway, that's a cute movie date you had. it's really important to make some time with each other to keep the fire burning. :-)

  29. Missed the Iron Man 3 so I don't have any idea about it right now. Perhaps I'll just watch it when a DVD copy comes out. Well parents like us need some time off and dating together with our spouses are just one of those missed moments. Great that you enjoyed your date.
