Ever since Ashleigh was 3, going to the movies has been a family event. We would go see the latest family movie and have popcorn, pretzel bites, icees, and candy. We also would leave singing the songs from the movie or repeating the great one-liners from the funny characters. Today was no exception.
Today we went to see Cinderella. Even though the girls know almost every part of the plot, they were in awe of the beautiful scenery, gorgeous costumes, and real live people playing characters that were once cartoons. Ashleigh, my sensitive one, cried 2 times during the movie, once when Cinderella’s mother died and once when Cinderella was so upset at her step-family’s hurtful actions. Mollie, my comedian and scaredy cat, laughed at the funny parts and curled into me when the step mother was being her villainous self. Watching a movie through the eyes of a child is one of the best parts of being a parent!
