Meet the Robinsons...A Kid's Movie???

We rented this last night figuring you can't really go that wrong with a Disney movie, not a movie from Pixar in conjunction with Disney, but a pure Disney movie. Looked pretty good, animated, with space ships, time travel and cool inventions. Kevin and I thought Kyle was enjoying the movie until at the end he all of a sudden burst out crying and came running to me. Running to me is pretty unusal for Kyle because if something scares him he generally goes to Kevin. Anyway, Kyle comes running to me, crying, and lays down on the couch with me. Kevin and I were shocked because there were not any scary parts in the whole movie and particularly in the part we were watching. Had no idea was he was crying until we finally got out of him..."why is the mama leaving the baby?" Now, if you have seen this movie you know the main character is left on the door step of an orphanage as an infant by his mother. The movie shows this scene again towards the end. I could not believe it when Kyle finally got out what was so upsetting to him. So now, we have had to have a discussion with Kyle on why some children have to go to orphanages and why these children's mama's have to leave them. And a discussion about how I am NOT leaving him. I am still upset with this Disney movie. On the plus side, we pretty much knew Kyle is our sensitive child...we are definetly sure of that now.

I knew Kyle is a perceptive kid but I am blown away over that one. That ranks up there with the movie Bambi when his mama gets killed. I never took you to see that movie....learned my lesson with your sister. She cried for a long time sobbing that "they killed Bambi's mommy" I think she was 4 or 5 at the time. God love Kyle for having such a caring heart.

bless his little heart. he has so many babies in his world right now, that i'm sure it WAS upsetting to think that a mama could (or would) leave her baby.
