This may be one of the reasons I love him. The Sound of Music and his amazing grilling skills.
Since Addie was a babe I have sang her Baby Mine at bedtime and he has sang Edelweiss. Needless to say, when Addie realized that "her daddy's song" was in the movie she was hooked. Since Christmas we have watched about it two or three times. Addie is enamoured with Maria and likes to pretend she's running down the mountain, late getting to the convent. She loves to sing all the songs in the car Do Ri Me and My Favorite Things and Sixteen going on Seventeen. Nightly she thinks she should perform Song long, farewell as she heads up to bed. But suddenly, her most requested song is Maria.
Today as we were running around town she said to me "Mama, let's sing the Maria song" - so I started a loud, off-key rendition of Climb Ev'ry Mountain with enthusiasm.
No! Noooo Mama! Not that one!
Well, which one do you want babe?
The one with Maria and the witches.
Maria and the witches? I don't know that one, honey.
Yes you do Mama. The one where the witches sing about about Maria.
The witches sweetie?
Yeh-us Mom! The witches in black who help take care of baby Jesus.
Trying not to drive off the road while laughing - Honey, those aren't witches, those are nuns.
Oh? Well, sing that nun one then.
Dear lord parochial school is going to be eye opening for my sweet child.
