It has come to light that I may have a teeny tiny addiction to Frozen.
Dave called me on it recently when I divulged to him I purchased
a stack of a little bit of Frozen merchandise online for myself Miss almost Four. (Just quietly, you have to grab this stuff while you can. It’s as scarce as hen’s teeth, am I right?!)
To be honest, it took us awhile to hop on the Frozen bandwagon.
It was only a few months ago that Dave, Curly-locks and I watched it together for the first time.
In the climactic scene where Anna is turned to ice, I was overcome with emotion. When I looked at Curly-locks to see how she was coping, she had her bottom lip out and a solitary tear rolling down her cheek. Meanwhile, Dave all of a sudden started blinking weirdly and mumbled something about walking into a dust storm. In short, all three of us loved it.
Months later, Curly-locks’ love of Frozen has plateaued, while mine appears to be ramping up.
I’ve tried to conceal, don’t feel, don’t let people know.
Well, now you know. It is time I let it go. I can’t hold it back anymore.
I am addicted to Frozen.
I am more addicted to Frozen than my four-year-old.
If you show any of the signs below, which I currently display, then I fear that you too may be more addicted to Frozen than your child.
You have a compulsion to purchase Frozen merchandise (commonly known as ‘Frozen merch’ amongst mum groups).
You trawl Facebook and eBay at every opportunity for new merch. You may even make public announcements on your personal Facebook page desperately seeking Anna or Elsa costumes. Each time a new Frozen item flashes up in your Facebook newsfeed you fight a frightful urge to purchase. Purchases are often made in a blind frenzy. It is not until the invoice arrives that you realise what you’ve done. Dolls, costumes, hoodies, jeans, undies. You want it all. Let’s face it, if you saw a pack of Frozen undies in women’s size 12-14 you’d be clicking that PayPal button in a heartbeat.
You beg your child to watch Frozen with you.
Me: I’m bored with colouring. Let’s watch Frozen.
Curly-locks: No, I want to watch Mary Poppins.
Me: No, you don’t. You love Frozen. C’mon, let’s watch it.
*Puts DVD in to watch it for the millionth time*
You use quotes from the movie in everyday conversation … with other adults … and at work.
‘Thanks for your request to make changes to the website. We’re undergoing a content freeze at the moment (let it go, let it go, can’t hold me back anymore). I will action your request when the website is no longer Frozen ;)’.
You’ve done the Which Frozen Character are you quiz.
I’m Anna by the way.
You belong to a Facebook group called Friends of Frozen.
You know all the words to the songs and ask your daughter if you can practice the moves together.
When your daughter does a performance to Let it go at ballet class you openly weep.
(I wasn’t the only one okay).
How did you fare? Are you or your kids addicted to Frozen? Do you want to build a snowman?
