First, an American Idol recap: Who thinks they should just give the title to the cute girl with the sick daughter? Me, too!
Next: Bambi II arrived last week, and we have been watching it all the time, mostly while WCK sits on the potty refusing to pee. WCK loves the movie, and I have to admit that I enjoy it, too. I think it might even be better than the first movie. I never thought I'd say that about a direct-to-DVD Disney movie. Bambi II is the first one I've ever seen. Jay and I have always been big Disney fans, to the point of being big Disney snobs. We'd always scoff at the idea of the direct-to-video "sequels" -- you know, Aladdin II, Cinderella Part Three, what have you. We always said that when we had kids, we wouldn't allow them to watch anything but the "real" Disney movies. Apparently, we had no idea that there were so many other more important things to worry about -- such as figuring out how to keep a child alive -- so our Disney principles fell by the wayside. I guess I'm glad, because I really do enjoy Bambi II. Maybe I just like hearing Patrick Stewart (who voices the dad) say, "Bambi" all the time.
Anyway. One of the plot lines involves a snotty rival fawn named Ronno who is always picking on Bambi and making snide remarks. At one point, he says to Bambi, "You callin' me a liar?" WCK thinks this is HILARIOUS, and now she goes around saying this. She says it to friends, to complete strangers, to random mothers at AirZone. She often accompanies it with an evil eye, which makes it all the more shocking and hilarious and makes me look all the more like a terrible mother.
At least she's (mostly) given up her favorite line from Milo and Otis, which was "Okay .... PUNK!"
