MY REVIEW:
  In my home we love The Little Mermaid.  I blame my husband, he has something for redheads, even the fishy kind apparently.  We received The Little Mermaid awhile back and the kids instantly loved it, they would sing the songs and dance around playing while it was on.  Who knew, an interactive movie!!  When we were offered the chance to review Ariel's Adventure Continues I just knew we had to.  The kids get a look into Ariel's life before coming human, what made her father such a grumpy pants and why she wanted to run away so badly.  They also get to see Melody and her journey to the sea that Ariel tried so desperately to keep her from.  When it's in your blood there is no stopping you, you always find a way.

  Ariel's youth became difficult with the passing of her mother and then King Triton became a very strict and angry man, he lost the love of his life and didn't know how to cope with it.  He made some anger-filled judgments that changed the lives of the world deep under the surface of the sea.  There was nothing fun to be done any more and his beautiful daughters were suffering even more.  Ariel is how I picture my children, when you tell them not to do something they will find a way to get around what you say and you'll never find out (luckily this has yet to happen but I envision it in their teen years, after all they have all been fantastic leading up to today, it will come back on us I'm sure).  My children learned a valuable lesson watching The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning; they learned not to make rash decisions when you're feeling hurt or angry, take time to calm down and reevaluate the situation and then make any decisions that need to be made.  I'm a good example, whenever my husband and I argue I tend to take myself out of the situation, retire to my room and craft or review, blog, anything that will help me figure out what to do next, two hours later I emerge and we settle things.  Sometimes you just need that time to put things into perspective.  Luckily for me we rarely argue :)  Yeah me!!

  There are equally important lessons to be learned in The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea.  Like, don't lie, it's kind of a big deal.  It's a grey area for sure but I completely believe that omitting the truth is just the same as telling an outright lie.  When you explain things to others you make yourself vulnerable for reactions that you may not be in favor of but really, wouldn't you rather tell your daughter that she's a mermaid then hid it from her and have some sea witch tell her when she's older?  Personally, I would rather know that sort of thing from my mom.

  I really like both of these movies, my children enjoyed both of these movies and now that this review is done I think I'm going to go have a Mermaid-a-thon with Little Miss B.  Have fun everyone, go out and get a copy of this movie so you can enjoy a magical, musical time too.
