I thought when I first saw FROZEN the movie back in November, the emotions I felt were a little exaggerated because of the pregnancy hormones. I got a case of the feels when Anna was singing to Elsa as they were growing up. And they just kept coming.
The ending, oh, the sisters and the sacrifice and the love? As soon as I got home, I told my sister she had to see FROZEN. To me, it was all about sisters.
(At no point am I implying that either one of us is an ice queen or a naive girl who falls in love too quickly and only sees the good in people!)
FROZEN reminds me of the bond sisters have; through the good, the bad, the crazy, the disagreements and the happiness. In the end, sisters are there for each other for everything. They’ll give you the dress, fly into town for your surprise birthday party, help you clean up your kids’ puke, show you how to wear your baby by wearing your cat, show up to your house when you experience great loss, and offer to come stay with you to help out when you hubby has to fly out for a family emergency. Sisters will wear your baby and let you wear hers. Sisters are awesome.
Even though it took like 20 years for us to really get along, and took both of us being moms to really “get it”, just like Anna and Elsa (well, I have no idea how old they are), we finally got to a place of love and understanding.
My girls are pretty awesome sisters. They are always looking out for each other, trying to protect each other, and for the most part being nice to each other.
I know there will be some turmoil (ha! some…) down the road but hopefully not resulting in one running off to a cold icy castle. Hopefully, they will continue with their amazing bond and showing their love. After all, it’s the act of love that fixes everything!
I knew when I first saw FROZEN that I wanted to buy it for the girls. They waited very patiently as we didn’t all see it in the theater. So, as soon as the movie came out on March 18th, I went to Walmart first thing in the morning and added the FROZEN DVD to add to our collection. To sweeten the deal, they had a price drop from $16.96 to $14.96. I could have saved another $5 with a coupon on specially marked packages of Eggo Waffles (24 count).
I wanted the girls to see the story of Anna and Elsa and to see that an act of true love can fix pretty much anything. I wanted to check out the FROZEN toys, too and lucked out that they were being stocked right when I showed up.
I scooped up some Anna and Elsa dolls, and a mini set with an Olaf for E. I’ve got them hidden away to give to them before we go to Disneyland next month so they have new dolls to bring with them. They are going to be so excited.
The movie was the most exciting thing to them! We set up a picnic blanket and had dinner while watching the movie. They all started on the blanket, but my emotional girls didn’t last long there.
Shortly after it started, there were sisters on daddy’s lap and some on mine.
At the end of our #FROZENfun, the girls were so excited, they asked to watch the movie again in the morning. While that didn’t happen, nor did it happen the next afternoon, I found that after watching FROZEN and seeing the sisters interact, they were much kinder to each other. They tried to avoid conflict and help each other when there was something wrong. They played better and were more patient with each other. The message of love really stuck with them.
What did you or your kids most relate to in the movie FROZEN?
