Why I Just Can’t “Let it Go” + Fun Frozen Finds for Your Little One
The thing about a good Disney movie is that you just can’t let it go. Especially if it’s captured the eyes and ears (and subsequently heart) of your little one. One of the things that I love so much about Disney movies is that these beautifully told stories often manage to capture our hearts too. They speak to the inner child in all of us. The part of us that still believes in magic. The part of us that sees parenthood as a multitude of things, among them being a chance to experience the magic of childhood again.
Not since the Little Mermaid and the Lion King has a story spoke to me the way the story of Elsa and Anna did. Perhaps the fact that I am a mother of two girls made it even easier for me to fall for these two sisters. My girls and I have sat and watched this movie several times, and each time they look as their mama’s eyes get glassy. The first time we watched it I wept. Yes. I know. You too?
And despite welcoming an occasional break from the soundtrack (currently in my car CD player) I just can’t let this movie go. It’s found a place amongst my favorites. This mama is moved by a story about sisterhood and love in its many forms.
Perhaps for me, the takeaway, the message that keeps me coming back, is that sisters will always be sisters.
In the end, nothing was a match for the love of a sister. People will come and go, but sisterhood – that is forever. And as I’ve said before, my hope is that my two girls – sisters – will be there to hold each other and love and support one another when their daddy and I no longer can.
At almost two, I don’t think my toddler really understands the significance of a movie that has managed to warm the hearts of many, despite what the title might suggest. But when she looks up at her sister saying, “Hold me sister” — and when the first words that come out of her mouth in the morning are “Sister where are you?” — it’s clear to me that she understands the gift she has in the form of a sibling.
As a tribute to the movie that we still can’t get enough of, here are a few Frozen products currently available for purchase at Disney Store.
