A little background: My 18-month-old daughter's favorite "word" right now is "uh-oh." She says it anytime something unexpected happens (such as a streaming video suddenly pausing to buffer) or when she drops something.

This past weekend we were visiting my brother in Atlanta. We had grown tired of watching back-to-back episodes of "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood" (my daughter's favorite show). So, we decided to browse Amazon Prime for a free family movie. We chose "The NeverEnding Story."

She largely ignored the film until we got to the scene where Artax and Atreyu were in the Swamps of Sadness. Once Artax started sinking, suddenly she was completely invested in what was going on! As the music got more intense and Atreyu began to plead with his horse, she got the most serious look on her little face. She kept looking back at us like, "Why aren't you doing anything to help them?!" Then she began hitting the TV with her hand as though she could somehow stop what was happening on screen. I started to worry that I was going to scar the poor kid.

As most of you probably know, when the music reaches it's climax and the scene ends, it fades out and fades back in after the horse drowns. Right after the music stopped and the scene faded back in, she turned around to face us. She then uttered a serious and most appropriate, "Uh-oh." We all started to laugh. It was one of those moments you wish you had caught on film!

Once the "crisis" was over, she soon forgot all about Artax and went straight back to her toys ;)
