Spoonful of Sugar

Mary Poppins.

My older kids watched it so many times (back when I had to put a movie in FOR them) when they were little that they hate it, now. The younger kids only get to watch it now and then. When I make them. So I can watch it, too and sing along.

It was the first DVD I bought. But I still have the VHS, too. I have the whole movie memorized. Dialogue AND all of the songs.

And every now and then, this useless information that clogs my brain comes in handy.

Like when I walk into the girls' room and blurt out the first thing that pops into my head:

"It IS rather like a bear pit, isn't it?" (said in my best Mary Poppins accent)

Now if only we could snap our fingers and watch the mess pick itself up!
