We LOVE Frozen but it "caused" our first meltdown

For those that have not see the movie Frozen, know that I do really like the movie.  I really don't like when a movie is hyped up as being sooooo good but truth is, I saw the movie, thought it was good, but am now jonesin until it is released.  I WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN!  (smile)

As for you, Miss E, you also REALLY LOVE the movie!  You ask to watch the videos of the songs on YouTube every day, most of the time multiple times per day.  Normally, I do oblige.  But lately, you've been having some acts of, well, defiance and disobedience.  It happens.  We all go through our stages of learning who we are.  You are three. 

But last night, it REALLY happened.  You were good all day.  The deal was, as long as you were good and had no potty accidents, we would watch the videos before bed.  And we did!  I loved having you lean up against me, smiling and laughing at the movie (and also covering my mouth telling not to sing - smile).  But then IT happened.  It was time to head upstairs.  You flipped out.  You see, lately you haven't been napping which I knew would eventually happen as you got older.  I think you've napped once in the last week.  So you were extremely tired.  But when we told you it was time to head upstairs, you had your first all out kicking legs and scream/crying tantrum.  You wanted more Frozen.  You didn't want to go to bed.  It lasted all the way through potty, teeth brushing, and putting PJ's on.  It didn't stop until you were in bed (which was the quickest amount of time we've ever gotten you down).  YOU WERE EXHAUSTED.  We're not mad that it happened, we just wanted to show you how much we love you.  By the time Daddy was done reading, praying, and singing, you were laughing again.  But I can now say, you've had your first tantrum meltdown.  (smile)

Here are some links to a couple of your favorite songs:





Love you baby girl!
