We have never been big into television with Little Man. Because of his night terrors, we have been exceptionally careful with what he allow him to see. Word World, Veggie Tales, Super Why, Mickey Mouse…that’s about it.
A few months ago we borrowed “Cars” from friends and watched Lightning McQueen over and over. We had to give that back, and other friends loaned us “Finding Nemo.”
On a separate, but related note, we have been working with LM on obeying the first time.
(and disobedience has consequences)
Shortly after the belly conversation, we popped in Nemo for the first time. And watch Marlin’s wife/ Nemo’s mommy get eaten by a fish.
Fabulous. Mommies disappear.
(let me note that Keith and I hadn’t seen this movie since it was in the theatres)
Then, when Nemo swims up to “touch the butt (boat)”, LM says, “He’s disobeying!”
“yes,” we say, “yes, yes, he is.”
And then he is kidnapped.
“What happened, Mama? What happened?” says our slightly panicked little guy.
“Well, he got swept up in a net. But just watch, honey, it’ll all work out.”
And then we have to explain that disobedience is not good, but does not result in being separated from mommy and daddy.
