Ok parents, how many of you have seen “The Greatest Showman“?? ?Yes, I know you probably can sing every word to all the songs, and maybe you even know all the words to the movie by heart. LOL ?

Our kids have watched it more times than I can count! I have even sat and watched the whole movie from beginning to end. Usually, I am the type of person that needs to be doing something else while watching a movie or TV show. I just need to be busy scrolling Pinterest, Facebook, or writing this blog post.

But, with The Greatest Showman, I sat and watched it! Not doing anything else! LOL,? It has so many great lessons to learn in it. And I think each time the kids have watched it, I have picked up something new to apply to my life, or remember.
