I took Astrid to see the movie, "Up" today. We got home at 6:30 and it was sweltering inside the house. I got an idea to go to the movies - for the cool air conditioning - and also because I had heard people raving about "Up". It was playing at 7 PM - so Astrid and I jumped in the car and went and saw the movie.
And this is what my 4 year old got out of it:
Astrid: "Why the man hit him on the head and make blood come out? And why the police come?"
Mama: "Well he didn't want the man touching his mailbox and he got really angry. But you can't just hit people, or you'll get in trouble."
Astrid: "Yeah you can't hit people. You're supposed to say - 'Please don't do that that.' Right mama?"
Mama: "That's right."
Astrid: "I say sorry when I push people at school sometimes. And they supposed to apologize to me too. When you hurt someone on accident you have to apologize."
Who knew there was a built in proverb?
