My daughter is developing a love for Disney movies. She used to not be the least bit entertained by TV in any way so this is a more recent development. All of a sudden, movies are fascinating, which is great when she is sick, but on more than one occasion, we have had to say “bye bye” to the movies because she forgets how to play with her trains and her dolls.
What most amuses me is what she calls these movies, and what she picks up from them.
First there is Toy Story 2, Pronounced Stoy Schtory. She loves Mr. Potato Head and has her own which she feels the need to take to bed with her every night. Her favorite part is the beginning where Buzz Lightyear “fly.”
We have just started Pocahantas, prounounced Pocapontas. She hasn’t seen it enough to pick anything up yet.
Lion King is “Tigers”
Charlotte’s Web (the cartoon version) is “Itsy Bitsy Spider”
Cinderella is as it should be pronounced. She loves the first scene where Cinderella is waking up and singing. For the longest time she would run around the house, almost stomping, and saying “Modder, Modder, Modder” and I had no idea why. Then I realized it was because the evil step sisters are often seen in this movie running around and calling ” Mother, Mother, Mother.”
101 Dalmations is “Puppies” and there will be more to follow as soon as I remember….
This post will be updated as to record these things for my own posterity.
