The King and I

For this weekend’s family movie night, we watched The King and I (1956).

Starring Yul Brynner as King Mongkut of Siam and Deborah Kerr as Anna Leonowens, this classic musical was another standby for me growing up. 

Lauren and the kids never having seen it before, they now can say they have seen it.

And a whole host of interesting topics came up in the course of watching.

For instance, “Who is Buddha?”

Also, “Why would you give a person to another person as a gift?”

Also, “How does that work that he has so many children by so many different women?”

Are my kids ready to talk about those sorts of things? I figure there’s only one way to find out, and that’s by diving in and seeing how it goes.

And so we did. Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
