So it was only a matter of time before she discovered Disney Bounding. What is Disney Bounding? It’s putting together “normal” clothes to make a Disney-character-inspired pseudo-costume to wear when visiting a Disney park. It sounds like a lot of fun!
Here’s a video from Disney Style that illustrates what I mean.
We are so interested in the new Disney Pixar movie Inside Out, mostly because we are living. it. every. day. You know it’s true.
From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind.
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
One of the most challenging aspects of being a parent in this digital age is keeping my child safe online. We’ve avoided social media to this point, simply because I’m a firm believer in following the Terms of Service that detail users must be 13 years old. But it’s harder to avoid using the internet at all. I’ve found that the filters I’ve put on my router and her devices don’t work as well as I would like and it’s frustrating to have her go through me to do all of her homework and research. What’s a diligent parent to do?
Could there be a more wonderful literary holiday to celebrate than Read Across America Day? AND… it’s observed on Dr. Seuss’s birthday?!? I don’t think so!
Ariel and I adore Dr. Seuss books, of which we have many, and one of our favorite musicals is Seussical. The whimsy and creative writing style of Dr. Seuss has been a favorite of generations of children and there’s no better day to celebrate reading than on his birthday!
