Being raised in a strict household, television was taboo for most of my upbringing, but we watched many educational films and movies that we would rent from our local library or video store (remember those?). I grew up with BBC’s Shakespeare series, Jane Austen’s classics, documentaries and National Geographic films.
Disney wasn’t a big thing in our home, however my father, who was a little softer than my mom, would surprise us once in awhile with movies that excited the heck out of us. Those films included Beauty and the Beast, Fantasia, Jungle Book and Bambi. We watched them over and over again, until we quite literally wore a couple of them out. They added a little bit of magic in my own life and introduced me to new possibilities and discoveries.
Fast forward a couple of decades later, and I now have my own brood of 3 little people who have fell head over heels in love with the company that has become such a big part of many family’s lives. I have tried to keep a balance and introduce them to other films, but for now all they want are Walt’s classics.
Cinderella is a story that still widens my daughters eyes and renders her speechless at the age of 5. You can only imagine her thrill when she received her first princess dress on her 4th birthday.
After Snow White kissed my second daughter during our first trip to Disneyland, she has become completely entranced and wears her dress everywhere, daily.
And my son? Well, he’s just chill and reacts to everything with squeals and laughter.
You can only imagine how excited I was when Disney Baby asked for me to join their incredible group of bloggers. They will be showcasing some exceptional content including baby fashions, entertaining ideas, decorating inspirations, activities for kids, pregnancy advice, DIY projects and quite a bit of the same kind of thing you can find here at Child Mode!
