Little Nugget of Happy

There are so many things I’m looking forward to sharing with PJ as he grows up – it’s actually kind of overwhelming when I think about all his firsts that are coming down the road! One of my firsts that I’m excited about sharing with him is this:


I love this movie. It’s the first movie I clearly remember going to see in a movie theater, and I was SO excited about it. I loved every second! And then it became a staple on the summer “kids trips” (more about them another day). I know every single word of dialogue and song – no lie, I once recited the entire thing on a dare. This movie, and The Princess Bride, are my childhood on film.

And it came in the mail yesterday, through the Disney Movie Club! I was terribly tempted to stay up late and watch it, but alas, this is PJ’s childhood and not mine – and I can’t even use the excuse that it will be a special memory for him yet. So we did the boring, responsible thing and got baths and went to bed on time.

But Ariel, Eric, Sebastion, Flounder, and the rest – we have a date this Friday if I need to nail your fins to the floor!

  1. I was at Wal-mart at around 8 AM on 10/1 ready to do battle with crazy people if necessary to nab my copy. My girls have already watched it and have twirled around the room singing songs. One daughter is going to be Ariel for Halloween – the other wants to be a hot dog. šŸ˜‰ I’m working on ideas for a Flounder costume because their school only allows ‘story book character day’ instead of the dreaded Halloween. The Little Mermaid might be a stretch… but we pulled off Rapunzel last year. I’m going for it.

    • The Little Mermaid is a story book character but I wouldn’t read it to the girls – the movie has a MUCH happier ending! And I bet you could find (or write if you’re feeling rebellious haha!) a story about a hot dog šŸ˜‰ I was just discussing with a friend that we should found a charter school where the entrance exam is taken by the parents, who must demonstrate common sense and a sense of humor before they can enroll their kids. Halloween will be fun again in our school! Your blog posts qualify your girls for admission lol!
