Movie? I think not!

After spending time at Disney with her attention on many things, I began to wonder if my child could make it through a kid-friendly movie. A real movie. Like, in the theater and everything. I mean, she sat through "It's Tough To Be A Bug" and "Muppets 3D" during our trip with no squirming or wiggling to get down, but just how much could she handle? I decided to test her limits, at home, of course.

The first test was "The Princess and the Frog", which I love, btw. It's so fun and vibrant, the songs are awesome, and the New Orleans flair is EVERYWHERE!!! It's so familiar and fun that I knew she would love it, and she did! She sat and watched 20-30 minutes of the movie at a time, mesmerized at parts, and laughing and clapping at others! Then she would get up and play, but she came back 4 or 5 times to sit and watch again! Amazing!

Then we tried "Finding Nemo". This one REALLY held her attention. It's so much to look at that she loves it! She sat for about 40 minutes of this movie without moving! It's probably not good for her to watch so much TV, but she never watches TV except for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and the occasional episode of Special Agent OSO, so I wasn't too concerned. She loves Nemo so much, that she picked out the DVD from the hundreds that I have in our DVD case!!!

Needless to say, I won't be trying the theater anytime soon because it's loud, unfamiliar, expensive, and she would interrupt someone elses movie if she fussed, but it's good to know that there is hope one day!

See ya real soon!
