I don’t even try to hide it. I cried during The Lion King.
When it first came out in theatres, my mom took me to see it. We both cried.
And more importantly, we bonded. My mom and I have had a pretty difficult relationship. My parents divorced when I was really little (I think I was 5 or 6 years old? I was in Kindergarten, I know that much). My mom stayed in Florida, and my dad and I moved to Wisconsin for a few month, then to Minnesota.
What happened is kind of a long story, but the thing I’m trying to get at is that I would visit my mom every summer, and the summer The Lion King came out, she took me to see it.
I just looked up when The Lion King was released on IMDB. Wow, I’m getting old.
Ok, so my mom and I had a moment during The Lion King. Why am I writing about it now?
Well, for one thing, because I was thinking about it and this is my blog so sometimes my random thoughts appear. But mostly because I want to go see the live performance that’s touring now. Yep, instead of buying movie tickets, you can buy Lion King tickets to see the live musical performance. And I sooo wish my mom could go with me.
I’ve only seen my mom twice since Levi was born. She came the week after he was born to help me out around the house, and then came to visit again for his birthday. I miss her and I wish she could be here all the time.
The Circle Of Life seems like a pretty fitting memory. Levi, me, my mom…we’re all part of that circle. I’d love to take Levi to see the live performance with my mom and start the fun all over again.
So, if anyone wants to buy me an early b-day present, Lion King tickets are the way to go 🙂
