We took the girls to see Annie at the local Community College. They were so excited, they have been counting down the days since we told them about it. The first time they saw the movie I think Eden was about two and a half. They would watch it everyday. I remember the first time I watched it with them. Watching it with adult eyes, was very different than watching back in the day...I began to question how appropriate that show really is. Where to begin...
Alcoholic Miss Hannigan...seriously every scene she is either drinking or drunk.
Sleezy Miss Hannigan...clearly doesn't have any morals. She throws herself at every man she sees.
Abusive Miss Hannigan...screaming at the orphans, depriving them of food, making them work like slaves and constantly belittling them.
Disrespectful Children...name calling, lying, fighting, stealing, not sleeping at bed time.
Children running away...the worst part is that you are relieved when Annie gets out of that dreadful orphanage.
Children hanging out alone, at night, in a big city....and you are hoping they don't get caught.
So, yeah, this is the show I took my kids to. Here they are in the car, with "Holly" or "Holls" (as in Holly Hobby). She had to stay in the 200 degree car during the show. When we got back to the car Edee asked her "So how was it?" If that poor doll could talk...wait...her lips would be melted together so that really wouldn't work...
Here are some shots of the show. I kept my flash off, as to not get kicked out of the show for using flash photography.
Here they are with that sassy, sneaky, smart little orphan, Edee was a little star struck. (They even got autographs!)
And here they are with Miss Hannigan and her "brother" Rooster. Those two are a little too close, if you know what I mean...
After the show, my hard knock life continued.
