I mentioned earlier that my children are obsessed with Disney's Frozen. This obsession has only been fed by receiving for Christmas the musical soundtrack which has been listened to a mind-numbing number of times AND the movie itself which, as of yet, has been watched zero times.

The younger children's play seems to be centered on the movie a fair amount of the time. They make up dances to the music. Sometimes they even have analytical discussions about the movie--who is really the main character--Anna, Elsa, or both?

Yesterday my children (who have been nursing colds of one kind or another since before Christmas) insisted on going outside for at least a little bit to play. I allowed it, thinking that maybe some fresh air would do them some good. The three-year-old couldn't find her coat and ran outside without it, leaving the door open. Before I could lay the sleeping baby down and run the coat out to her, I heard her tell a concerned sibling, "The cold never bothered me anyway!"

My niece's daughters insist on being called Anna and Elsa. At our  Christmas get-together, I heard them correct their mother repeatedly when she called them by their given names.

So, is this an obsession peculiar to my family, or is this going on all over the world? Please tell me I'm not alone. Please tell me it will go the way of winter when the spring thaw comes.


  1. Sorry to tell you it is an obsession that has been going on for quite a while. At the 'talent show' at church/daycare in February, I think there were three or four renditions of Let It Go.

  2. Well, then. I guess I'm glad we were saved from it until fall. Now, don't get me wrong--I do like the movie. It's just the excess.

  3. Our Little Miss is only 2 and a half and we've escaped the obsession so far, but even at this age some of her friends have caught the bug. My condolences, hopefully they'll grow out of it soon!

    1. Thank you, and may you escape all such obsessions with your daughter. . . be they Disney ones or boys bands.
