Wordgirl turned 5.
March 31, 2010.
My little girl is 5!!!!!
We had a fun time as a family today.
Chris and I took the girls to a movie. Actually, Wordgirl invited Princess Pea, and little Fourdatzky had to come with. So poor Dash was left at home. But at least he was left at home with Grandma and Grandpa. And he had some INTENSE one on one time.
We saw the Princess and the Frog. I didn’t really want to take Wordgirl (much less Princess Pea) to the Princess and the Frog because I had heard that there was a lot of voodoo in it.
They weren’t kidding. Chris and I were taken aback by how much black magic was in it. It was pretty shocking.
Our options were How to Train a Dragon, Alvin and the Chipmunks, and the Princess and the Frog. The other 2 were PG and we weren’t very comfortable with that since this was going to be Wordgirl’s (not to mention Princess Pea’s) first movie theatre experience EVER. So we thought we would just talk about the movie after we saw it. Wordgirl told me that she was brave during the scary parts. I think mostly the scariness kind of went over her head (for which I am thankful), but I told her that Jesus doesn’t want us to think about those things so we should try not to.
Princess Pea was only scared when the Alligators were chasing the frogs. The voodoo stuff went COMPLETELY over her head.
I think I have learned that I am not going to make promises to my kids that I may not be able to keep. Unless it’s a birthday party, I think we are now going to make birthday celebrations a surprise! (at least for while they are little!)
My most favorite part of the day is still yet to come, but you’ll have to wait on that as I need to sleep while the little one is sleeping!
