mr and mrs incredible

DO YOU EVER THINK ABOUT MR. AND MRS. INCREDIBLE BEING OVER THE MOON WHEN THEY FIND OUT THAT THEY ARE HAVING A CHILD FOR THE FIRST TIME LIKE SO EXCITED BC THEYVE BEEN TRYING FOREVER TO CONCEIVE BUT IT WASNT WORKING AND THEN 6 MONTHS IN THEY VISIT THE DOCTORS FOR A CHECK UP AND EVERYTHING IS ALL CHILL UNTIL SUDDENLY no baby. AND THEY JUST ALL GO STILL FOR A SECOND AND THE DOCTOR LOOKS AT THE monitor is complete and utter shock and sadness bc he’s really grown to love this couple and he has to tell them that he’s really sorry but she’s had a miscarriage and that these things are common and they’re both just absolutely heartbroken and MRS. Incredible cries herself to sleep that night and MR. incredible just holds her not knowing what else he could possibly do to help her and then a month goes past and they’re still really shaken up about it but she still has all the symptoms of a pregnancy and she goes in denial and is all like “no. I am having this baby. Don’t lie to me this is not real. I am pregnant. ” and so she stays on her pre natal vitamins and all of that stuff but her doctor keeps telling her that she’s having a hysterical pregnancy and that she isn’t having a child but then two months goes past and she goes into labour bc turns out the baby was just invisible the whole time lol

Bc I think about that a lot

CAN I JUST touch on The Incredibles for a moment. I mean, since when do we ever see and superhero growing old and gaining weight and having to deal with normal shit like taxes just like the rest of us? We don’t see that - it’s just rich af Tony and Batman and freaking Norse Gods. But in The Incredibles you have this like fourty year old guy and his wife and their family and he has to work in a cubicle and gets yelled at by his boss and she has to vacuum and clean up shit and it’s so normal for a bunch of super-powered abnormal people. And that’s so cool!!
Even more than that it shows that even though they have powers they have to work for them. He has to stay in shape to keep up his strength, Violet has to practice in order to get her shields going, it’s not just ZING I broke a plane with my lazer eyes, they have to work for it just like someone in track might have to.

Also, one of the best scenes I think is when Mr. Incredible is telling Elastigirl that he’s not strong enough to lose them again. Because he is literally the definition of ‘strong enough’ - he has super strength! He’s super strong and yet he’s admitting that he’s not strong with them. Super sweet.

In general this movie is just boss.


Happy Mothers Day!

(I know some of these ladies are not really moms, but they’re included because not all mother figures are actual mothers)
