Let me start by saying I had no idea. But when I googled "mommy taking baby to movies," the search returned 240,000,000 results. (Fun Fact: When I googled "mommy reading to baby," I got 23,500,000 hits. Shall I go on?)
Why would I google "mommy taking baby to movies"? Well, I wanted to see if the baby who cried and fussed through 15 minutes or more of Gone Girl on Saturday night was an anomaly, or if this circumstance is a fresh hell of the 21st century. Turns out it's the latter.
