Earlier today, I watched a dinosaur and then took a ride on a zebra.
It was my toddler sister’s first movie at the theater and this auntie was invited along. The Good Dinosaur might be for the little ones, but I feel certain that the grown-ups in the audience were the only ones bawling their eyes out.
It was a movie about family, loss, friendship, getting through fear (and not getting rid of it) and letting someone go so that they can follow their own path to happiness knowing we have to follow our own.
Heavy, right? It was for me. It has been a while since I have seen a “kids” movie, and I had forgotten how they tend to do that for adults. I didn’t get that at all from the previews Pixar!!
There were intense messages throughout that my toddler sister couldn’t have possibly comprehended—just yet anyway. She was a champ making it through the entire movie!
Afterwards, we rode a zebra through the mall, which was a wonderful change of pace.
Dinosaurs and Zebras make for a full Saturday if you ask me. What have you done today?
Day 28 and totally recommend the movie if you are in need of a good cry!
