My Daughter’s New Hero.

Yeah, Pumpkin has a new hero. It’s not me.

Last night, we went out to dinner and on the way home I stopped to rent some movies and picked up “Kung Fu Panda” for the girls. We’ve now seen it a few times (yeah, it’s been 24 hours that the movie’s been in our house – what?), and though I’m kinda partial to the big fat panda who will climb up ten feet for some cookies, Pumpkin is just all about Tigress (voiced by Angelina Jolie, who I don’t love. Sorry. I just don’t).

So watching this movie sounds a little bit like this:

“There’s Tigress!”
“Tigress is my favorite!”
“I.CAN’T.SEE.TIGRESS! Where did Tigress go?!”
“Raise your hand if you love Tigress!!”

I am thrilled that if she’s gonna become infatuated with some cartoon character, it’s one that totally kicks butt and is a force to be reckoned with rather than some dumb little Disney princess.


I can’t wait til this movie has to go back.

  1. The Courteous Chihuahua says:

    Ummmm… does that mean you’re not going to buy it for her??

  2. Oh, gosh… You never know. I probably WILL at some point. BECAUSE I’M A SUCKER.

  3. KFP is an awesome movie. But you have to watch it (or have it on in the background) about 200 times before your brain just says "yeah, sure. It's awesome – just go get me more wine".

    My kids divided up the characters & decided that I was Tigress. Not a big fan of AJ either, I was just glad they didn't pick the cricket for me…
