Deep thoughts with…..Bambi?


There’s just nothing like seeing your 3yr. old’s brain growing! As she’s watching Bambi this morning, Abbi begings to ask me the deep questions. “Mommy, what happened to Bambi’s mommy? Why did she fall down? Is she dead? (we get the dead question often ever since our fish Oscar died about 5 months ago) Is Bambi hurt? Where is Bambi now?” and my favorite, “Where is Thumper’s daddy?” That is a good question! It’s neat and a little scary to see her brain working out complex issues instead of just sitting and taking it all in without a thought in the world. And by the way, have you ever noticed how often the “dad” is missing (whether by death or not) in many of the Disney movies? Where’s Dumbo’s dad? Cinderella’s dad dies. Bambi’s dad is mostly absent. Lion King? dead dad. Snow white? dead dad. You get the picture…
