The JAKE and I were discussing Winnie the Pooh during a recent Walmart run. We were talking specifically about the incident when Tigger tries out carrots and honey and haycorns and decides that none of them are what Tigger likes best. I love how even the big kids remember reading these aloud and to themselves. I love that it’s something we have shared together.
Then the conversation shifted a bit as Andy recalled that Winnie the Pooh was one of his all-time favorite videos when he was very young (I leaned on those quite a bit when Katie was new and Andy was only 18 months older!), and what a shame it was that we don’t have a viewable copy anymore since we had to pitch the old VCR.
Andy: We really should buy the DVD, Mom. It’s a classic!
Mom: You think so?
Andy: Of course! Like The Godfather and Toy Story! A classic!
I’m sure Michael Corleone would feel right at home with Pooh Bear and Buzz Lightyear, don’t you?
