Life with kids is ALWAYS an adventure. And I have 3 who are only 3 years apart. (yes, we're crazy.) This is my place to capture the craziness in all it's glory, because childhood only happens once. (thank goodness!)

A week or so ago I bought Zoey a pair of fairy wings and a little fairy tutu. They were at the dollar store and she really wanted them and I thought hey why not.

They sat in the closet until last Saturday when she saw then and asked to put them on.

She's been wearing them non-stop since. She wakes up and immediately wants to put them on. And cries when I tell her she has to take them to go to bed. She insists that I call her fairy, not Zoey. And she walks around the house turning everybody and everything into frogs.

So, last night for the first time I put Peter Pan in for my kids. We've had it for quite some time but they have never been interested in watching it. But I told Zoey it had a fairy in it and she got all excited.

She watched for a while and then came to me, very distraught, because Tinkerbell didn't ever talk. And she wanted to see a movie where Tinkerbell talked.

And here's where the Serendipity comes in. Because just yesterday while running errands and listening to Radio Disney in the car I heard that the direct to DVD Tinkerbell movie was set for release today! Seriously, could that have been better timing?

Zoey's so obsessed about it that she came wandering into my room this morning around 6:30 and typically the first thing out of her mouth is "I want a sippie of milk." But this morning she peeks up over the side of my bed and says in her best whiny voice "Mom, I really want to watch a movie with Tinkerbell talking."

And so, being the softie that I am I have promised that as soon as I'm out of the shower we'll go to Target and buy the Tinkerbell movie. And it will be a cheap made for DVD movie probably with no plot. But Tinkerbell will talk in it and that will make my 2 year old insanely happy for at least a week or two. Which is proof that sometimes money can buy least temporarily.

You will have to let us know if it's any good. It is so fun seeing her "girly" side come out.

HeidiPie said...

Cool! Now that is good news. Does she want to borrow Allie's tutu's, cause she never wears them.

What a good mom you are!

It really takes so little to make kids happy sometimes!

I'm waiting for your critique on the "Tinkerbell" movie, before I got shell out any money for it. I did go pick it up at Redbox last nite, but the chances that I will sit down & watch it are slim to none.

@Bonnie-Hey, I've been quite absent from the blogosphere, getting ready for Halloween and all. So, here is my very delayed review of the Tinkerbell movie. It's actually better than I thought it was going to be. John Lasseter is the producer, which is always a good sign to me. It wasn't quite up to par with Cars. But Zoey has already watched it a couple of times. Although she did tell me that she doesn't like the boy fairies. Go figure.

Previews made it look cute I am glad to hear it is. We will have to Netflicks it.

I actually went and bought it at the "W" store the other nite, and this will even surprise you, I sat down & watched it!! Not bad.... my favorite part was the very end!

Niki, where are you, I am going though withdrawals of not hearing about your children. I need some little Miller's quick wit!

Nicole said...

I know, I know. I've been thinking about it. Promise I'll be back soon.
