When I was a child, one of my all time favorite movies was The Land Before Time. I had the VHS tape, cups, action figures, all of it. But I never could make it through the movie without bawling my eyes out time after time.
Camden, our oldest has taken a fondness to dinosaurs in the past couple months through this new Nick Jr. show called Dino Dan. Christmas brought dinosaur action figures, a robot T-Rex... all the bells and whistles.
Today Camden decided to look through the DVD shelf, and when he came across the DVD of The Land Before Time, he wanted to watch it, and I knew it was going to be an emotional pregnancy roller coaster for me. Not only because the movie is horribly sad to begin with, but because my life has come full circle. I watched this movie as a child, and now my own 3 year old was insisting we watched the same movie I loved so much. As I put it on he sat down and paid close attention and asked a million questions. He really was getting it. Now all he wants to do is watch the movie I had on repeat as a kid.
It really puts life into perspective!
