BE is seven, but she’ll only watch animated movies. In her mind, live action movies (even those meant for kids) are actually for adults. Over the weekend, J rented “Where the Wild Things Are,” and BE lasted about 10 minutes, insisting that she only likes cartoons.
However, there is one live action movie that she’s seen countless times – “Martian Child.” J and I bought this movie even before we had kids, and it’s really not a kids’ movie. (There’s nothing inappropriate about it, but I don’t think it was aimed at kids). BE calls it “The Adopted Movie” and asks to watch it often. If you haven’t seen it, we all highly recommend it. In my opinion, it’s a good depiction of foster care adoption.
