Ever since I was a little girl I've been a fan of Disney movies.
When a new one came out to theatres, it was cause for celebration. I can still remember the time I went and saw Little Mermaid. I went with my best friend Rose and saw a boy from elementary school and hid from him.
I remember when my Mom bought me Aladdin and my sister, brother and I spent the entire summer vacation watching it.
I started collecting the videos (this was before DVDs were truly popular and affordable) so that one day when I had kids, I could share my love for Disney movies with them.
And while I'm tickled pink that I'm finally able to do that, I think I may have kicked myself in the pants with this one. Especially one of my favorites, Toy Story.
I found this movie while unpacking a long lost box from our move three years ago. I unearthed the Toy Story movie, dug out the VCR and popped it in for Roo.
And the rest is insanity.
We've watched Toy Story 1 & 2 (I found the second one at Goodwill for $2), every day for the past two weeks.
I mean, I'm not too disappointed in this because like I said, I enjoy the movie. But I can quote the entire movie from heart. I don't even need to be watching the screen to know exactly what Buzz and Woody are doing.
I do have to tell you though, I love how my girl lights up and jumps up and down when I mention watching the movies. She races as fast as her toddler legs can take her to the bedroom shouting: BUZZZZZZZZ!! WOOOODDDYYYY!!!
And I melt.
Sure, I've tired the Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, but the Princesses will have to wait. For now, Toy Story rules this house.
