NaBloPoMo Post #7: A Love-Hate Relationship with Lilo and Stitch


November 6th, 2009

I love the movie Lilo and Stitch. It’s one of my favorite Disney movies (along with Fantasia, Fantasia 2000, Beauty and the Beast and Newsies). It’s also one of Lexi’s favorite movies. There was a period several months ago where anytime she got to watch a movie she requested Lilo and Stitch. And then, we had to ban the movie.

For those of you who don’t have a need to watch cartoons, Lilo is a 5-year-old with some serious spunk. Funny but packed with attitude. Stitch is an alien genetic experiment that was created to destroy – he is irresistibly drawn to large cities, where he will back up sewers, reverse street signs, and steal everyone’s left shoe – and without the capability to love. But, surprise, surprise, Lilo and Stitch become a family.

Now the reason for the ban. Lilo sticks out her tongue. A lot. And Lexi started sticking out her tongue. A lot. So she was told until she stopped doing that, no more Lilo and Stitch. Well, she did a pretty good job of breaking herself of that habit. So we let her watch the movie again. And, I have a feeling there may be another ban coming soon.

The following is a list of Lilo (or Stitch) things that Lexi does:

1. Throws herself on the floor face down when she doesn’t get her way. (on the upside, it’s a very quiet temper tantrum).

2. We ask a question, she says “no”, we say, “What are you saying “no” to?” She says, “Nooooo!” This is a direct quote from the movie.

3. Draws pictures and says “This is you. This is your anger level. It’s very high.” (This is how Lilo explains Stitches initial rage.)

4. And the real kicker…she destroyed a book last night. Tore a book to shreds. Every single page torn out and torn into long strips and stuffed under her bed. And when asked why she did it. “Stitch did it.”

Update: 5. I forgot this one i posted. Stitch likes to call people “stupid head”.

So, the movie may need to go into hiding again. Which is sad (for me) because it’s one of the few movies of hers that I actually enjoy watching with her.

    I am also a huge fan of Lilo and Stitch…and as one I have to say LOL LOL! Drawing the badness levels is just funny stuff…on a side note I said the same thing about one of my coworkers very recently…only I said it about his anger level (in my defense his anger level is REALLY high for someone his size ;) )
    That said I can totally see why it may have to be banned. Thanks for the smile tonight! :)
