Meredith, my little sister, has always enjoyed going to the theater to watch her big sisters in a play. Then, for weeks afterward, she sings the songs and quotes the lines. This goes on for a few weeks, then she'll forget it and prepare herself for the next show.
Not so with the Prince and the Pauper.
Meredith LOVED that show. She only saw it once, but between that and coming to a couple rehearsals and hearing us sing it around the house and listen to the CD, I believe she knew the music better than we did...just kidding!
All that said, Meredith still talks about the Prince and the Pauper. She still occasionally sings the Prince and the Pauper. And, on the way to Music Man this year, she got mad and yelled, "I just want to see the Prince and the Pauper!!" And yesterday, while I was pouring myself a glass of milk, Meredith asked to hold the jug. Swinging the jug into the air, she gleefully yelled, "Let's Toast!" (I know, I wonderful thing for a three-year-old to be saying) Of course Rebecca wanted to get in on the act, and so while I ran for the camera Rebecca got out the Nesquik container (which is somewhat shaped like a jug/mug/thing). Enjoy!
