On premiere day, Greg and I took the girls to see the new Muppet Movie. We were all excited…and we loved it! I have to admit that I got choked up a few times – especially at the idea that I was sharing this happy part of my own childhood with my girls. And well, a comeback story always gets me. And Rainbow Connection? Bring on the tears.
My girls? They laughed! And they were sad when Walter was sad. And they cheered at the end.
And Mommy was a hero!
Because I know Walter! Peter Linz, the amazingly talented actor who plays Walter played Polka Dots & Doodle Board on Blue’s Room. My girls remember meeting Peter who was always so sweet to them. Congrats to Peter! You were awesome!
I seriously wish more movies for kids were like The Muppet Movie. Silly, heartfelt, fun for all ages. “Forget You” in chicken bok? Genius.
And my girls can’t stop singing, “Manamana!” Bonus!
