"Yes! But I need this toy, and this toy, and this toy. Oh, and my blanket," Natalie answered primly.
Sometimes when we go out, she feels the need to bring most of the contents of her room.
I told her she could pick ONE toy. She reluctantly agreed, but sighed, "My other toys are going to be sad. Sorry, guys. It's my Mommy's fault."
We were going to see Maleficent, a movie Natalie had been aching to see for weeks.
We arrived at the theater early. I wasn't sure how busy it would be. Turns out, only one other family joined us.
Here's Natalie in the theater with her blanket and toy, who was able to obtain its own seat.
The movie wasn't scary. Some people were worried it might frighten their children. If your kid is sensitive then perhaps this isn't the movie for them. But Natalie knew Maleficent couldn't possibly be ALL mean.
It turns out, Maleficent had a reason to be pissed off.
Maleficent is meaner in the Sleeping Beauty film. But you have to understand, these movies are different. So don't expect Angelina Jolie to do or say everything that Maleficent did in Sleeping Beauty.
She does say this though:
And she does have her crow.
There are some dark moments, but really, it wasn't that bad. Natalie wasn't afraid at all. In fact, she's now a fan of Maleficent.
Basically, the moral of the movie is, don't piss off a woman.
