What can happen if you let your 2 yo watch musicals ...

2 yo L loves to sing.  She loves music.  She sings as she plays ... Bible songs, silly songs, made-up songs.   Well, her older sisters have been enjoying watching musicals over their summer break, and she has enjoyed them, too. 

12 yo A was watching South Pacific the other night, and 2 yo L was fascinated.  At the end of the beach scene with the songs "Gonna Wash That Man Right Out Of My Hair" and "I'm In Love With A Wonderful Guy", 2 yo L suddenly threw her arms wide (just like Nellie did) and loudly sang in toddler-ese "I'm in LOVE with a wonderful GUUUYYYYYY!!!"   It was so cute and funny.

Last night she was doing that again, although I didn't quite place what she was singing so loudly at first.  That was my first mistake.

My second mistake was leaving her alone in the shower while I dressed, after we had taken a shower to cool off from the hot hot day.

After I was dressed, I went to get her out, only to find her washing her hair ... AGAIN!!  Her hair was covered in shampoo and she was dancing around in the shower.  She wasn't singing, but it sure looked like she was trying to act out the song, "Gonna Wash That Man Right Out Of My Hair".   So, she had to get a second shower to rinse all that shampoo out of her hair.

She's never done anything like that before, so I can only blame it on letting her watch South Pacific. 

So, be careful what you let your 2 yo watch ... even the most innocent of movies can have interesting and messy consequences.  It's a good thing those 2 yo's are just so cute.

Trusting in Him,


  1. The picture in my head of your 2 year old singing in the shower cracked me up! Mine are all currently stuck on the songs from Annie--it's a hard knock life all-day-every-day at the Eastlands here lately!


  2. Yes, those 2 year olds are little sponges! But so cute :)


I love to hear from you. Thanks for your comment!
