Has anyone watched the Disney movie Up?

Postby princess purr » Tue Aug 02, 2011 02:54 pm

Thanksgiving day weekend my hubby wanted to cheer me up because that is always a super hard time of the year for me because Veronica was born on Thanksgiving so he rents up... let me just say after the beginning I cried so hard I had him crying... if you haven't seen it, just avoid it!!!

Yeah, that movie really messed me up. I can't remember if I saw it before or after we lost Gracie, but I know that I cried and cried because I imagined us never having children. I love my husband more than anything and deep down I know that we would survive never having kids, but it still hurts to think about.

That movie should carry some kind of a warning label, I get sad just thinking about it.

I *loved* _Up_, because it was honest enough to acknowledge that not all the endings are happy. Women like us are a little less invisible because of that movie.

I kinda think anyone not like us or knowing someone like us just brushes over that part and forgets about it. In fact I just saw engagement pictures to the theme of disney's "up"... I was like wow... that is not how I would want to start my marriage.
