The Eight-Year-Old Goes to the Movies

Cinderelladisney

A few weeks ago, a miracle happened and we were able to convince The Eight-Year-Old to go see a live-action film (Disney’s Cinderella) in an actual movie theater out in the world. (She definitely prefers to only watch animated movies at home.)

The Eight-Year-Old ended up liking it. But it was touch-and-go for a while.

When Daddyo asked what she thought when the movie was done, The Eight-Year-Old said in great frustration: “Why do the Moms always have to die in these classic stories?”

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book, Did Dinosaurs Have Belly Buttons?, is currently planned for release in 2018. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
