Makin' Memories {movie style}

Our little man is obsessed with "TB" and "MOBIES."  One of those two is the first word out of his mouth every time he wakes up (morning and nap times) plus he throws it in several times through out the day for good measure.  It starts with "Fish mobie?" (Finding Nemo.) If that's a no, he asks "monsters?" (Monsters University) and if that's a no he finishes with "Wio?" (Rio). If that's still a no, we start all over again!  On a normal week, we try and balance a good deal of morning outside activity with tv in the afternoon because it's so hot. However, Cody's been gone since Friday afternoon, so this week is all about survival... that means that Griffin is getting to watch a lot of fishes!

Despite that fact that we've already watched Nemo several times this weekend, I still wanted to make our time together fun, so tonight, we had a mini popcorn party as we sat down to watch Nemo.  Popcorn.... before dinner... as much as he wanted... wherever he wanted.... with Nemo on the tv... Could it get any better for Griffin?

Actually, it can!

We were able to try out the new Perfect Pop app from PopSecret... which means that as my little helper was manning the microwave, he was able to "see" our popcorn cooking! Popcorn, mobies, and the phone... Griffin's ultimate trifecta!


Nothing ruins a movie night quicker than burned popcorn, so the Perfect Pop app saves the day! It's simple enough for your toddler to use too: put your Pop Secret in the microwave for the suggested cooking time. Turn up the volume on your phone and point the speaker toward your microwave. Start the micro, then the app and watch as your popcorn cooks!  No more relying on the popcorn button or guessing how many seconds in between pops. Pop Secret is serious about perfect popcorn, so the less I have to worry about, the more time I can enjoy with Griff! Perfect Pop listens to the pops, waiting for the precise moment to let you know when your popcorn is perfect.


Griffin was enthralled with the app! Here's a few pics of how the cooking in progress:

Griffin couldn't wait to dig right in!



Griffin and I enjoyed our little movie date and we're one day closer to Dad being home! Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming... :)

Many thanks to PopSecret for helping make our date possible. By clicking the links above, you are helping me to contribute in a small manner to my family. Thank you for your support!
