Slam
The Sound of Music was on t.v. last night. I didn't get to watch it, but I did see enough commercials to get the music stuck in my head :)
I was buzzing around the house singing "My Favorite Things" and this is the conversation that followed...

Red: Mom, what is that song from?
Me: What do you mean? (I twirl and continue singing) Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...
Red: Is it from a movie?
Me: Yes.... bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens...
Red getting a little exasperated with his crazy mom: What movie is it from?
Me: It's called The Sound of Music.... (singing a little louder) brown paper packages tied up with strings...
Red: Doesn't sound like music to me!

Oh how I love my pre-teen child!

I saw it for about 3 seconds, and then had to turn it off. I hope there's a time where I will be able to watch that movie again without wanting to kill myself. That's what happens when you are forced to watch it for 20 years in a row.

I think you and Red should have a movie date and watch it together! LOL :o)

We just borrowed that from a friend a month or so ago and Boogers LOVED it! She loves anything with songs though so I wasn't too surprised. I agree with Anon, have a movie date with Mom! :)

It's pretty hard to be puffed up when you have a preteen in the house! ;)
