Yesterday morning, over breakfast, Matthew wanted to watch a show. And not just “Sesame Street” or “Curious George” or “Word World.” No, he specifically requested “The Music Man.”
You know what this means to a musical-loving mama, don’t you? It means that the indoctrination is working.
So here it is: “Marian the Librarian” from “The Music Man.” Musicals just don’t get more joyful than this one. And this is one of my favorite numbers, mostly because I’ve always had a soft spot for libraries. (If you want to go right to the fantastic dance routine, skip ahead to 3:45 or so). And if you’ve never seen the movie, get it ASAP. It’s utterly fabulous in every way.
If you don’t believe me, just ask Matthew.
