Mary Poppins

We went to Mary Poppins this weekend! I'm still humming the songs.

Some memories:

  • When Bert pops out of the chimney in the beginning, Max hissed, "He looks real!" I whispered, "He IS real." This became the theme of the day, even though I thought I talked about it with them before. They just heard "theater" I guess and thought movie theater.

  • Both boys kept holding out their hands for snacks. Constantly.

  • The part when the toys came alive I found creepy, but that was Benny's favorite part -- and I hear, his 2-year-old cousin Jane's favorite part: "Look, a big bunny!"

  • Benny noticed the stage lights changing colors and was so fascinated he forgot to ask for snacks for about 5 minutes.

  • When Bert dances upside down I about jumped up for a standing ovation. Incredible.

  • Max was rather mad when I took him and Benny to the bathroom. "This one is for girls," he scolded.

  • Near the end, Mary Poppins flies out over the audience and up to the mezzanine. Benny said, rather loudly, "How did she get out of the TV?"

Sounds like you had a lot of funny moments. I think I liked the last phrase the best. Got to love the kids. This is all new to them.
