The whys of Frozen
07/01/2014 § Leave a comment
Am’s first movie was Frozen and she is really into it.
Now she claims that she is a Princess.Am: “I am Anna.” “I am a princess”
(She is already the princess at home, and she doesn’t know it?!? What!?!?)
And she will say: “I want hair like Elsa. Make my hair like Elsa”.
On Sundays, she will have special request: “Mama, make me a crown. I want a crown.” Those 2 theme songs from frozen” Let it go”, “Do you want to build a snowman”, we must have sung the song at least 20 times that Sunday, the tune got soooo stuck in my head, as it did in hers. So much so that she was singing the chorus in her sleep “Let it go….. let it go….”Frozen doesn’t freeze here. LOL. This is the conversation that takes place almost every time we watch the video clip of “Do you want to build a snowman”
(in the part where the ship capsized, I’ve got lots of explaining to do)
Am: Uh-Oh, what happened to Elsa’s mama and papa?
Me: There was a storm and the ship sunk. Elsa’s parents got drown in the process.
Am: Did they catch fish for Elsa?
Me: Uh, no. They died.
Am: (totally not convinced) No. They jumped into the water to catch fish.
Me: No, they died. Look, their tombstones.
Am: Oh. (Pause) Can we make Elsa new papa and mama?
Me: Eh, nope. Doesn’t work this way. Some things are irreplaceable.
Am: Oh.Long pause.Am: What happened to Elsa’s papa and mama? The conversation would start all over again. I understand why little girls are so sold into the Disney’s lifestyle of princesses and castles.
It’s really magical. The princesses, even the doll, Elsa, looked so superior in comparison with the other stuff toys, I can imagine the sense of intimidation the other toys must have felt if they can feel.Anyway, her toy – Princess Elsa, has settled into our little home. She sings the theme songs of Frozen very well, teaches and reads to Amelia, laughs with her, fell too many times on her face (when Amelia dropped her), been to parties and speaks Mandarin and Singlish.
For now, she is Am’s best pal.Until a new princess comes along to steal her heart.
