Do you wanna build a snowman?

Do you wanna build a snowman? Come on lets go and play. I never see you anymore. Come out the door. It’s like you’ve gone away. We used to be best buddies. And now we’re not. I wish you would tell me why. Do you wanna build a snowman? It doesn’t have to be a snowman. Go away, Anna. Okay, bye…

Oh, I’m sorry. Was I just typing the words to the song “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” as sung by Kristen Bell in the movie Frozen because it’s I’ll I’ve heard for the last 72 hours since downloading the soundtrack for my 7yo?

Right. Sorry about that.

Every time I hear this song, it makes me weepy. I tell this to my daughter and she completely disagrees.

“Mommy! It’s not sad! She doesn’t want to hurt her sister!”

For me, my heart breaks for Anna who is lonely and longs for her sister. For Anson, Elsa is doing the right thing by not turning her sister into an ice sculpture. It makes perfect sense.

If you haven’t taken your kid to see Frozen, do it. It’s good. Then download the soundtrack on iTunes and meet me at the looney bin after you’ve heard it on a loop for 72 hours.

Frozen is nominated for 2 Academy Awards: Best Animated Feature Film and Best Original Song “Let it Go.” It won the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature and “Let it Go” won the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Song.

p.s. I forgot to ask… Do you wanna build a snowman? Ride our bikes around the halls… la la la la la la la…
