Sunshine's and Monkey's new favorite movie is Rio. If you've never seen it, it is cute. You know a kid's movie is good when you're still willing to watch it after having it on over and over and over and over and over...
The best part of the movie? They both like it. Not something that happens often. Now I don't want anyone to think that I plop my kids in front of the television all day but I'm certainly not going to deny that I do let my kids watch it. How much? More than some and less than others. :)
Like all kid movies though, it has catchy songs in it. Songs that will stick with you all day long until the next thing you know, you're the one singing it. It's like a commercial jingle; you don't realize you know it until you're washing dishes and you start humming it. Next thing you know, you're thinking that maybe you should go ahead and break out the popcorn and watch the movie again.
The catchy jingle type songs aren't age discriminate either. Sing the song enough and others will join along, even if they don't know how to talk yet. Bug has started to sing along too. Although his goes more like, "Wio. Wio. Wio." It is definitely him trying to sing the words. The baby says no more than a dozen words but he can sing the words from an animated movie.
On the positive side (always look at the glass half full) he is learning words and he is exploring his musical side.
