Our regular Family Day having been distrupted for the last couple of weeks, we were very
relieved excited to have been invited to attend a pre-screening of the new Disney movie, Brave.
With loads going on, it was nice to have something planned and organised that we didn’t have to think about.
We got up, got organised and got out the door in plenty of time.
I ensure the kids were dressed correctly. We had been requested to “dress up” with a bit of a Scottish theme. Not only am I not that organised, I’m also not that creative. The best I could think of was dressing Chippie in the Dorothy the Dinosaur paraphernalia we have; pyjamas, hat and tail, and calling him the Loch Ness Monster.
Sadly, the tail is in storage somewhere, and … I’m not that organised. It’s been a huge couple of weeks, leave me alone.
We did also entertain the Buzz Lightyear dress up we have, but he didn’t want that. He took his Buzz Lightyear toy instead. I did put Monkey Boy, with his gorgeous, long, unkempt hair – because he claims to have brushed it, but clearly hasn’t – in one of my green dresses so he looked like the heroine, Merida. But then I wanted to wear it, so he missed out.
Off we went, to be greeted at the cinema by the dulcit tones of the bagpipes and a gajillion people, before being ushered into the cinema.
The movie was lovely. Funny. Bums were shown and my kids sat through it all without incident.
It was a lovely story.
There were more bums.
And the mischievous antics of three boys (Triplets. In the movie. Not my kids at all. I promise!)
It was funny, moving, emotional, entertaining, and well worth going to see. It has a lovely story to it, too. And witches so your kids can say “She looks like you, Mum” … or is that just my kids, because they are so awesomely hilarious?
It opens in cinemas, officially, on the 21st (this Thursday).
If you do get to see it, come back and tell me what you thought, yeah?
Then we caught the tram back to our car, which is always fun … and requires us to be somewhat brave ourselves, at times …
