Snips and snails and dragon tails

I introduced Daniel to "Pete's Dragon" during our little storm Saturday night. Now it's his favorite movie.
We go through these phases - "Aristocats" lasted about two months, "Oliver and Company" lasted almost six - I think that's because the lead dog looks like our own pup. "The Brave Little Toaster" probably would have lasted longer than its two-week run, but I couldn't take it any more.
But "Pete's Dragon" has all the winning bits for boys: Dragons and ships and colorful bad guys. Plus, lots and lots of kids in the cast. Singing, playing, dancing, there are kids everywhere. And I watched the movie just grab his little imagination and plant ideas. So the next few weeks should be fun - who knows what he'll come up with?
