My Sensitive Girl

Lately, we have been having a couple of Movie Nights with Lana. She really likes to watch the stories and she will talk about them for a long time after she has seen them. She loves to watch the Tinkerbell movies (which she regularly watches on our iPod Touch, it's a saviour for when she's cranky at a restaurant!), and a week or two ago we watched Finding Nemo, fast forwarding the frightening parts because as Lana says, "I don't want to be scary" (hehe - so cute!)

Last night, we decided to watch The Lion King with her. Lana has been loving lions lately, and Bernard has been singing "In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight" with her, so it was a natural choice. We decided to fast forward some of the scary parts of the movie with Scar and all that, but for some reason we didn't fast forward the stampede when Mufasa died. It is not so much scary as it is sad.

As Simba was crying out for someone to help him, I looked over and saw a tear in Lana's eye, and as Simba began to cry, Lana told us: 

"The baby lion is crying. And Lana is crying too".


  1. awwww, i balled my eyes out in that part!!!!
    so sweet!
    love you guys,

  2. amazing for her to already be compassionate towards another! (Even if it's just a lion) ;-)

  3. I've got tears in my eyes reading this. Such a sweet girl.

  5. reading that last line made ME cry. so sweet
