This is one of our favorite Disney movies. The Little Mermaid is a classic with wonderful music and amazing characters. But we couldn’t help but think of how old we are now because we were constantly telling Ariel how she IS just a child. We remember being kids watching this show thinking that Ariel was so grown up and her father should listen to her and stop treating her like a kid. Now we are watching it and we hear Ariel exclaim, “I’m 16 years old, I’m not a child.” Uh, sorry Ariel, but yes you are! Suddenly all her choices make so much sense. The fact that she instantly falls in love with a boy that is off bounds and that she is so willing to give up her life for him…It’s because she is a little teenage girl. But yes this movie is still amazing. It is a sweet fairy tale about a girl who wants to follow her own path and her heart.
