Disney Classics Challenge

31 January 2017

So I’m told, part of maternity leave is recuperating, enjoying yourself and learning to bond with your new baby. For me, obviously this means subjecting our new born child to all the Disney classics. I’m basically giving them the best start in life by doing so, aren’t I. And, it’s the perfect excuse to sit back and watch the golden oldies myself.  

I’ve found that over the years, some Disney classics that I swore I would never lose touch with do indeed get a little bit forgotten. For example, I absolutely adore 101 Dalmatians and can recite the film backwards, but I cannot remember the last time I sat down and watched it. Same goes for the more lesser known ones, such as The Three Caballeros. My mum used to play the music to us all the time and my brother and I loved to watch the film and sing along with Donald Duck playing the fool.
To rectify this, I’m going to go and watch the 55 Disney Classics in 2017 (as inspired by the wonderful Hannah). I will tick them off and add the date I watch them as I go. It’s the perfect excuse for me to welcome Peanut into the life of Disney, whilst re-watching some of my faves. Obviously, little Peanut isn't here yet, but it doesn't mean I can't get a head start!
