Singing in the Rain

My kids and I have been wrestling around since the Wife went to work. I am pooped and need to get supper started. So I popped in one of their new favorites... Singing in the Rain, with Donald O'Connor, Debbie Reynolds and Gene Kelly.

We borrowed it from my folks awhile ago, and it has rapidly become one of the most watched around here. That's OK with me, because I love little more than old musicals if I have to watch TV.

Right now the Sweet Pea is sitting at one end of the couch, completely engrossed and dancing when the music plays. The Boyo is doing the same, except he's singing along with the songs.

Very little more amusing to hear your five year old singing,

"I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love"

Of course, he also does a pretty great version of "Make 'Em Laugh" too! Complete with the dance. Though he gets frustrated that I won't help him do the back flips.

More Later

Sounds like you three are having a GREAT time! 'Singing in the Rain' has always been one of my faves!

Luckily he's too young to do the walk over the couch trick - but I doubt that stops him from trying, so keep an eye out!
