Musical movies, that is. We’ve rediscovered Mary Poppins around here lately and it’s been really fun. Although I did have to ‘splain what a run on a bank was—I had forgotten about that dramatic conclusion. Morgan has jumped off of the ottoman holding her umbrella about a thousand times and I think I caught Ryan trying to imitate Dick Van Dyke’s penguin pants.
The kids have also enjoyed The Sound of Music (Nazis!), and of course, Xanadu (roller skates!) Any other classic musicals I need to get them started on? I’m thinking possibly The Music Man. But then I might have to ‘splain about con men. Do I really want to give him ideas? :o)
Ooooh! What about 1776? Who doesn’t love some singing Founding Fathers?
