I called our two youngest munchkins over to see. They oohed and aahed as they asked a rapid-fire series of questions:
- "How can they breathe in space?"
- "Why do they have to go outside?"
- "How did they get outside? Did it let the space stuff into the space shuttle?"
- "Hello! Hellooooooo"
The viewing didn't last long. Almost as quickly, they were getting up to leave. "This is boring," uttered Noah as he scooted back to his Shrek DVD.
The magic lasted all of three minutes, but it was just enough for them to have a glimpse of another world before they went back to the comfort of their own.
Your turn: What's magical to you? To your kids? How do you know when something actually is magical?
