You haven't lived until ...

... you've listened to a four year old belt out "The Bare Necessities" at top volume while getting herself ready for bed. Such heart! Such spirit! Such uninhibited glee! Such charming disregard for the proper key! Even her big brother had to chuckle over her cuteness, and he's not really one to waste a compliment.

(The kids are all really into The Jungle Book movie these days. That's as Disney as it gets in our house, and they'd probably watch it every single day if I let them.)

Speaking of movies, we all watched Singin' in the Rain the other night, and now Lizey's quite hooked. "Moses supposes his toeses are roses," she chanted the other day, while bouncing in the Johnny-Jump-Up she supposedly outgrew three and a half years ago. Ian and Oscar even liked it, although they vastly preferred the tap dancing and other acrobatics to any of the "kissy, romantic scenes with GIRLS in them! Yuck!" One could easily mistake them for Fred Savage in the Princess Bride.

Let's enjoy that attitude while it lasts. :-)

Yes, one day, kissing and "bare necessities" won't be so far removed.

Aw, I love Singing in the Rain...well except for that bizarre "Gotta Dance" part in the middle of the movie...what's with that? I sing "Good Mornin" to my kids almost every day. :)
