Thanks A Lot, Frozen

When you are parent you want to give your child everything.  More than anything in the world, you want your kid to be happy – because they way less annoying that way.  But what happens when your little angel wants something you just can’t give them?

I ran into this problem the other day after The Munch watched the movie “Frozen.”  If you are not aware of this charming film, there is a character named Elsa who has magical powers in her hands where she can turn everything to ice.  I mean, call me a stick in the mud, but that is kind of a lame magical power if you ask me.  Yet like all Disney cinema, “Frozen” has crack in it, and The Munch is obsessed – despite the fact that Elsa keeps brutalizing her sister Anna with these powers “accidentally.”

Munch: Mamma I really want to have magical powers like Elsa.

Toni: Oh.  Okay.

Munch: But Mamma, where did Elsa get  her magical powers?

Toni: I don’t know Munch.

Munch: Mamma I really want magical powers like Elsa! Where did she get them???? I REALLY WANT TO BE LIKE ELSA!!!

Toni: Munch, Elsa is a cartoon.

Munch: (Sob) Mamma please!! You have to tell me!! My hands can’t to anything.  See. NOTHING! I really need magical powers!! WHERE DID ELSA GET THEM? PLEASE!! Wahhhhaaaaahhhhhhaaaa!!!

Toni: Man I really don’t know?  I mean, I guess she practiced? She like tried really hard? Ummmm perseverance is everything?

Munch: But who gave them to her??? Wahhhahhhaaa!!!!  Can you please give me magical powers??! Wahhhhaaahhhhhaaa

Toni: Gosh Munch… I just don’t know.

Munch: Well I could get magic sneakers that light up? Just like Hazel.  And then my shoes can light up and be magic….

Toni:  That’s a good idea.

Munch: But what about my hands!!?? Whahhhahhhahhhaaaaaaaa!

Toni: I don’t know what to tell you Munch…

Munch: Well can you give me a little sister named Anna?

Toni: You want a sister?  I mean I already have you and you are more than enough for me.  Like seriously, you are more than enough.

Munch: I need you to put a baby in your tummy right away so I can have a little sister named Anna.

Toni: Dude, I am not sure I can make major family planning decisions because of a movie.

Munch: BUT I NEED TO BE JUST LIKE ELSA!! WAAAHHHHHAAAAAHHHH!!

Toni: Munch, even if I did put a baby in my tummy, it could be a boy! There is no guarantee that that I could put a girl in there.

Munch: But you made me into a girl so make another one! PUT A BABY IN YOUR TUMMY AND MAKE ME A SISTER NAMED ANNA AND GIVE ME MAGICAL POWERS IN MY HANDS!!! WAHHHHAHHHAHAAAAHAAA!!

Then she buried her head in my lap and cried and cried at the unfairness of the world.
