kids beanbag #popsecretmovienight

Friday is Family Move Night in my house.  We have dinner, everyone gets in their “jamas” and we snuggle in for viewing time.  All 5 of us.  No phones, no newspaper, no tablets, no magazines…it’s family time.  My son has a humongous bean bag in his room that the kids like to snuggle together on to watch movies- so he and my oldest usually head up to grab that to bring downstairs.  The kids love this tradition, even we’ve only been doing it a few months- and they like it just so.  The littlest one has to get on the bean bag first, then my son, then my oldest.  They like me to “throw” them onto the beanbag and wiggle them around so they are just “so.”

#popsecretmovienight kernelsOnce we’re all in comfy clothes and jamas, we start the movie, or at least get it in hand to put into the machine to play.  (Yes, we do still use machines. We’re archaic over here!) Which is when there is a chorus of protests “MOM!  MOM! Where’s the popcorn?!”  because, apparently, movie night just isn’t going to be movie night without popcorn.  They don’t know it but I don’t like to watch previews so I kind of wait to start popping until those start so I can skip them.  Shhhh.  It’s a mom secret.

We can’t just have popcorn, of course.  Someone *coughcoughMEcoughcough* decided to add a few chocolate candies to popcorn one night and movie popcorn was created.  We must have MOVIE popcorn for family movie night.  no exceptions.  Sure, the kids like buttery popcorn, but they LOVE popcorn with chocolate in it.  I mean, who wouldn’t, right?  My son just wants butter on his.  He likes the sweet, too but he LOVES buttery popcorn. So I guess one of the secrets to our movie nights really is (Pop Secret) Popcorn!

Sometimes the hubby and I have a non “G” movie night after we put the kidlets to bed- it’s a nice way to keep the snuggle time going and really refreshing to just chill out together and relax for a few hours.  Of course, we’ve been known to make an extra batch of movie popcorn.  Just don’t tell the kids.  It’s just really good.  Friday= family movie night. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  • This is so sweet! It reminds me of things we used to do when I was a kid. Doesn’t the popcorn mess bother you? I’d be all over making cookies for this. Lots of milk too.

    • It does but it doesn’t. We do a big vaccuum first thing on Saturday mornings anyway, so whatever the dog doesn’t sneak gets vaccuumed early the next day.

  • We don’t have a set movie night. But we do have times like these and enjoy them immensely. We also enjoy playing games such as parcheesi or trouble together. We really love to have game night outside in the summer, fresh air, relaxation and family time. :)

  • My children are grown up now but we had movie night most every week till dating came in the teenage years. LoL. You are making memories for your children that money cant buy and the love and warmth they will feel when they look back as adults is priceless! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all families did movie night!

  • What a GREAT way to have family time. I love movies and popcorn. I have a little difference in the way I eat my popcorn. I sprinkle Skittles in mine. YUMMY sweet, salty, crunchy, fruity GOODNESS! Try it out and let me know how you liked it. It may be less messy than chocolate for the kiddos as well.
