Pull out your favorite old film and watch it with someone you love.
As you know we’re movie and sports people around here. Watching TV shows is somewhat of a special occasion. And while I love new releases, I love classic films.
I suppose “classic” is in the eye of the beholder. Typically, I mean “classic Disney.” I am a sucker for the films that I grew up watching.
So how fun was it to watch the Diamond edition of Cinderella on Blu-ray with my kids? And yes, even some of the bigger boys watched. In fact, this was one of my brother’s favorite films when he was in preschool. That may be why my boys were willing to watch it, now that I think of it.
The girls, of course, are enamored. While I love the substance of character demonstrated in more recent movies like Beauty and the Beast, Brave, or Tangled, I do like Cinderella, particularly her voice.
The Cinderella film is filled with great Disney classics, like Bibbidi Bobbidi Blu, A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes, and our favorite, Oh Sing, Sweet Nightingale. The girls and I have been singing the songs at bedtime which is a fun way for us to make girly memories together.
And to stop and smell the roses.
Watching a classic film is a great way to stop and smell the roses.
The days are long, but the years are short. I don’t want to miss them! For more short and sweet ideas on how to stop and smell the roses, to enjoy the little things in life, check out my 31 Days to Smell the Roses series.
