Go, Kids, Go!

We went to see the movie Wreck it Ralph last weekend. It was super cute! The kids loved it. If you’re a gamer and/or if you played as a kid, there are a ton of references that you’d love! It was amazing the amount they must have paid to get rights to put in some of the old school characters. Just awesome.

Down falls to the movie: a lot of toilet humor. My daughter loved it because that’s whats funny to her. In her mind there is nothing funnier then to call someone a diaper head. Throw dirty in there and you’re a riot. So, in the sense she was very entertained, the humor was just right. However, as a mom trying to get her 4 year-old to stop talking about diapers, yeah. It was a bit much. The only other negative I’d say about the movie is the end there was a clown/spider thingy that was scary for me. I felt my daughter who was on my lap tense up, it obviously scared her a bit too. I don’t get why they have to ruin a perfectly good kids movie by throwing in scary stuff. UGH! Anyways, after he was down for the count, she was fine and it didn’t cause any nightmares. So I guess it must not have been too traumatic.

Beside the overall enjoyment from the gaming references, cute little girl, and family time, the biggest bonus of the movie was my husband’s creativity leading to the kids have diaper (I bit ironic….) box go-carts. They were really excited to get them until they realized they didn’t actual move. Yeah, that was disappointing for them. But then they conned their dad into pushing them around in them. Fun in a box! If time allows this weekend I’m going to see if they want to decorate them. I have some construction paper. Hopefully there will be enough to cover both cars. If we do it, I’ll post a f/u blog entry with updated pictures.
