I Will Get Back Up Again!

I Will Get Back Up Again!

Pretty much everyone I know has told us to watch the movie Trolls. We finally took the advice and watched it this weekend. We have watched it three times already (it’s only Monday – that’s once per day). I’m pretty sure this movie is going to be a staple in our house.

Even if my kids get sick of it, I’ll be watching it forever. Why? Oh, let me count the ways. First of all, the nostalgia of those fuzzy-haired trolls takes me back to being a little kid and having my (admittedly a little creepy) troll collection. I can’t believe this was like 25 years ago (huh?!).

Second of all, it’s hilarious. One of the trolls farts sparkles, for goodness sake. There’s Lionel Richie’s “Hello” (who doesn’t love that?). I could go on.

But lastly, and most importantly, it’s a positive movie with a great message, brave and heroic characters, and it celebrates love, friendship, kindness, and happiness. I don’t see myself as much of a sap, but truly, this movie got me. Oh, my heart. And after a weekend that ended on a sour note, this bummed-out mommy needed a little splash of happy today.

So if you’re having a case of the Mondays, throw on this movie. Trust this skeptical mommy. You’ll thank me later.
