A day that my 7 year old daughter and I looked forward to with much anticipation.  When we saw the first theatrical trailer released for the live-action Disney’s Beauty and the Beast film in November of 2015, we immediately made a pact that on the weekend of the release we would have a girls day out to see the movie.

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my all-time favourite Disney films. We have a copy of the animated film not only in our house, but also in the car. It has been known to play on repeat quite often. Because well – what’s not to love?!?

For the big day, my 7 year old had to dress the part. Between wearing Belle’s Ball gown, having her hair styled to match Belle’s, using Belle’s dress up accessories, and sporting a minimal amount of make-up, she fit the part! She was so excited!

The movie did not disappoint. Seriously – if you have not yet seen it. You must! The cast was incredible. And the movie? It was nothing short of magical. Really there are not enough words to truly describe how great it was.

Cadence has been obsessed with re-enacting the ballroom seen from the movie. She will happily lie in her room, playing with her Beauty and the Beast Grand Romance dolls while singing Tale As Old As Time.

It is moments like these that truly make my heart skip a beat. I love watching her imagination come alive as she plays with her toys.

Cadence reminds me a lot of Belle. She’s very intelligent, finds happiness in a good book or library, does just about anything for those she loves, and sees the world differently from others; always eager to explore and come to her own conclusions.

She really finds Belle’s character relatable, and I think that is why she has such a blast playing with her Disney’s Beauty and the Beast toys.

Nothing has been more fun than sharing in the experience of watching the remake of one of my all-time favourite movies with Cadence, and I can’t wait to share in this experience again one day when my youngest daughter is old enough.

For now – my youngest clings to the Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Enchanted Jewelry Box, playing the iconic Disney’s Beauty and the Beast song over and over again each night until it lulls her too sleep while snuggling her Baby Belle doll.

One day she will understand what all the fuss is about.
