Boo and I haven’t had a girls trip since Little Man arrived. That’s quite a while. Yes, we have time together when he naps where we get up to our own activities, but it’s not really the same. Of course, until Little Man came along, every day, every outing was a ‘girls trip’, but I wanted to have a little special one on one time with my daughter, so we had some fun together yesterday.
She wanted to go to the cinema. She’s been a few times before, with the Husband and with her grandparents, but not with me, so I was looking forward to it as much as she was! We went to see Frozen, and I’d definitely recommend it. I’m always wary of Disney offerings, as they tend to favour some sort of parental abandonment storyline, which invariably has Boo in floods of tears, but all was well with this one! OK, so the parents did die at the start (not really a spoiler there – you knew it was coming!) but it was glossed over quite quickly and I’m not sure that Boo even caught that storyline fully. After that is was magical, funny and with a lovely soundtrack. We giggled throughout and I suspect I’ll be buying this one for her when it’s out on DVD. If you’re looking for something to to take the kids to this month, this is a good one 🙂
She was totally enraptured as soon as the lights went down – even throughout the adverts! And around halfway through the film, she decided it would be nicest to watch it from my lap, so we had cuddles, too 🙂
Back home, Daddy and Little Man had been having their own fun, but were happy to have us home, especially as we’d stopped off to buy some cakes for us all on the way back. Boo thoroughly enjoyed our trip, and I felt great having had a little mother, daughter time.
