Hakuna Matata

April 11, 2011

Whoops! I found myself summarizing the plot for my kids on the way there, and had shown a few You Tube clips to them the night before. Unfortunately, I got some elements wrong–I have probably only seen the movie once, and that was when it came out 15 years ago. Honestly, I had never considered my Disney hesitations would have any impact on my kids that were not positive, but I guess this production might have been more meaningful for them had they some background knowledge. All I hope now is that “hakuna matata” does not become a part of their vocabulary: it is a sure tell that you are not a native Swahili speaker, and we wouldn’t want to give anyone that impression.

    How did they enjoy the show? Did they sit all the way through it?

      Lily did. Peter can’t sit through a night of sleep. Yes–they loved it.
