From Ketchup...Boy Mom All Tangled Up

So to know me is to know that I love most all Disney movies, especially the princesses. Before we had kids I even started purchasing those said Disney Princess movies in hopes that I would one day share them with my daughter.

Flash forward 3 years later and here I sit with two boys and absolutely no girls! Now I love my boys and I say on a regular basis that God knew exactly what he was doing when he gave me boys. Let's be honest...if we had a girl we'd be broke. And not kinda sort broke, living-destitue-on-the-side-of-the-road-in-a cardboard-box-broke, but you better believe our little girl would be dressed head-to-toe in every pink ruffle, tu-tu, ribbony, lacy outfit known to man!!!

Getting as close as possible! Making me crazy, but as you can tell...glued to the tube!
 
But I digress...having little boys the last thing they want to watch is some Disney princess movie. They're obsessed with Cars (1&2), Kung Fu Panda, Megamind, Despicable Me (I can't wait for the second one), Monsters Inc, and well you get the picture...all the 'boy' movies! Well, I've been wanting to see Tangled and I finally sat the kids down and put it on, promising of course to put on Kung Fu Panda later in the day. OY!

Anyway, I'm obsessed. We're finally watching it now for the second time, which is great for me because who really has the time to sit and watch a whole movie from beginning to end while wrangling 2 toddlers. Not this Mom. Am I right?!

Dance, dance, dance! (Sorry it's a little blurry but he's a dancing fool!)

To begin with I love Mandy Moore, I want to put her and her voice in my pocket and have her make a musical to my life all day long. The movie is super dooper cute, and I love it! AND the bestest part is that the kidlets are totally into it too. I think there is a enough action to hold their interest because lets face it, these kids love anything that has a good music. Ahem...Megamind.

So anyway, if you're a boy mom and have given up hope like me that all those classic princess movies will never get enjoyed, shake the dust off and try them out. I'm pretty sure Snow White is next on our list, but I'm going to ease them (and their father) into this.

What movies are you and your kids in love with?
