This weekend, I joined thousands of mothers and their tween daughters across America (and the globe) in attending the 3D Hannah Montana-Miley Cyrus movie concert.
I must admit I am not a Disney fan. For all the junk they throw at our kids I am grateful most of it does not reach the far corners of the globe—Africa anyway, but the little bit of Hannah we get I’ve been okay with.
Gayla my thoughts of this 3D-movie experience was very different than your U2 post and I admit if the drummer sent my daughter any I love you messages I’d be writing a disgruntled parent letter instead of this post. (hee)
I was so thankful to be viewing this sitting down while eating popcorn than live viewing in a stadium. Can you imagine the high pitched screams from thousands of little girls…yea nails on a chalk board would be soothing in comparison!
Other differences than viewing it in the States would be….we did stand in a long line but it was for concessions and that was due to only one worker at the counter. We also only paid $3 for our movie tickets and an additional $3 for a large popcorn and 2 slush puppies. The movie was sold out but I booked tickets online 3 days ago and there were plenty of seats and it only showed at 1 movie theatre in all of Johannesburg. Furthermore no one dressed up as Hannah Montana and there were not any fathers wearing high heels in attendance (gotta see the movie or news on that comment).
I am pretty sure a rhinestone studded microphone stand will be added to Skyler’s Christmas list after seeing the movie. Secretly, I wouldn’t mind having one around (it was pretty cool) so I can practice my great (HA!) vocal skills after everyone retires to bed.
So as you see I am a missionary in Africa but I am also still a mom with an 8 year old girl…..and a happy one at that! Can’t remember who said it but I guess it is the best of both worlds.
