I've been wanting my boys to see Sleeping Beauty for years, but our local video store doesn't carry it. (Yes, it is criminal that they don't; and no, I'm not with it enough to have Netflix yet.) Yesterday at the Goodwill I found a copy for a couple of dollars. VHS, of course, but the kids aren't picky.
Yesterday afternoon they really enjoyed watching it. Especially the dragon part. When it was done, they played with their trains. Hearing a lot of noise from the room they were holed up in, I opened the door to find our entire wooden train set dismantled and spread across the room with every train in a smoldering (I have imagination too) heap with a large Rescue Heroes plane flying overhead.
Seeing the shock on my face, Patchy Pirate said with great intensity, "Mom, Malesifent astroyed the entire Island of Sodor."
Scallywag clarified, "With the guns on her big ship."
I backed away and closed the door with a sigh. Nice to know they identify with SOMEONE from the princess movie.
