We took the girls to see Tangled today. We were a little apprehensive about some of the darker scenes. We had read that there is a stabbing scene. Turns out the "stabbing scene" was just the sound of the hero being stabbed by the evil witch - they never showed anything. What was scarier was the demise of the witch as she turned into a skeletal thing that staggered out of the tower and fell all the way to the ground below. I recommend covering their eyes on that scene.

But then the hero dies. I know - pretty dark for a kid movie. So Ivy turns to me during this death scene. Her eyes are wide. Are those tears gleaming?

"Mom...." she whispered apprehensively. Uh oh, I thought. This was a mistake. Why did I ever bring her to this movie?

"It's ok, Ivy," I whispered back. "It will be ok in a minute." I peered into her face, trying to see if she was crying. "Ivy, are you crying?"

"Mom..." she whispered again. No tears, I could see now. But she looked distinctly anxious. I gripped her hand, darting glances at the movie screen, wishing it the scene would be over already.

"Don't worry, sweetheart. I am right here with you."

"Mom........... I want some popcorn."


  1. Hahahahahahaha...this seriously just made me laugh out loud!

  2. Oh, no!!! you gave up the end! Now I won't go see it, I might want to eat pop corn.

  3. LOL. Dark times call for popcorn, gotta eat your feelings and all.

  4. LOL She knows what's important!

  5. Oh gosh! Too cute! We saw that too and loved it but yes, I agree the evil witch dying was a bit much. Yuck!
