Watching Mary Poppins with Baby

There is only one word that comes close to accurately describing the enchanting Mary Poppins, and that term was coined by the movie itself: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Julie Andrews won an Oscar as the world’s most magically idealized nanny (“practically perfect in every way,” and complete with lighter-than-air umbrella), and Dick Van Dyke is her clownishly charming beau, Bert the chimney sweep. The songs are also terrific, ranging from bright and cheery (“A Spoonful of Sugar”) to dark and cheery (the Oscar-winning “Chim Chim Cher-ee”) to touchingly melancholy (“Feed the Birds”). I just love snuggling up on the couch cuddling with baby and watching Mary Poppins. Good babies get special rewards and special Mommy time. *giggles* MMMMMM I can smell the pop corn in the air.
