Last night our family lounged in the living room and watched the classic movie “Home Alone.” This was the first time Connor and Bryce had seen it.
Of course they were laughing hysterically when the two cat burglars were getting their butts kicked. These guys got set on fire, they get crushed in the face by full paint cans and let’s face it, seeing someone getting hit in privates by a BB gun is hilarious no matter how old you are. Now my wife and I are just hoping this movie doesn’t give the boys any ideas…
I have not seen this movie since I became a father over 10 years ago. For those Dads out there, you know how your perspective changes when you see movies from being a single guy to a father. Your filter tends to change and now you see messages in a different light. My takeaway in the past was pure laughter and watching two bumbling robbers getting the crap kicked out of them.
Last night I was left with a different feeling. I saw in through the eyes of a somewhat scared 8 year old’s eyes, who realized, “I better be careful what I ask for because it might just happen.”
