We were lucky enough to get to go see the Broadway production of Mary Poppins on Friday.  We headed downtown to The Paramount to catch the bedazzling presentation with my parents, niece, nephew and, of course, the whole LJ crew.

They included a lot of the music from the movie, but it was very different from the movie.  Some additions could have been left out (as it was 2.5 hours long already) but their take freshened up the story. But really?  Two and a half hours.  With four kids.  And a 60 something year old man.  It was a long play!

The special effects were fun, but most of all, the actress who portrayed Mary, truly embodied Julie Andrew’s version of Mary Poppins.  If you have read the books then you know that Mary?  Not such a lovely nanny, rather she is kind of mean and bossy, but of course in that way where the kids and parents love her.

While we were there we had the added bonus of running into Nancy and Shyla, my sister in law and other niece.  It was a lovely night out that left us all with a skip in our steps and a song on our lips.  “Supercalifragilisticexpedalidocious…”

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
