We went to see the first Toy Story late at night, where only young college students were in the audience, and we all yelled “to infinity and beyond” at the end of the movie.
Toy Story 3 took me back to that age, as Andy was getting ready to go to college. I admit I cried. But I cried that Andy left Woody behind. I took my favorite stuffed bear to college, and couldn’t imagine having made it through without him.
Toys are such an important part of our life; growing up doesn’t always mean we have to let go.
