"Mom, can we go and watch Disney on Ice this year? Please! Pleeaase!"
, K pleaded with her fingers intertwined, placed right on her chest after watching the Disney on Ice
preview on TV. "Sure!"
, I replied without thinking twice with a huge smile plastered on my face. Immediately after our conversation about her all-time favourite Disney movies, I made a quick thank you prayer that my teenager is still so much a child at heart. What a great relief!
To say she is fond of Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Rapunzel, Belle and Ariel is an understatement. Please excuse my word but the truth is she is crazy
about them! When she learned all those Disney characters I mentioned will be featured on Disney on Ice, her eyes sparkled even brighter!
Based on the number of times we watched the movies on Blu Ray, Disney's Frozen
is the kids' "favouritest"
succeeded by Tangled, The Little Mermaid
and Beauty and The Beast
. I can already foresee how the kids will not be able to contain their happiness when we watch the show next month.
