Birthday Hit

The song was a hit.

The musical was a hit.

The movie was a hit.

And as a birthday present for Beaver, it was the biggest hit of them all.

The boy enjoyed opening various presents, some that had travelled a long way to get to him.

But the very best one was the Mamma Mia DVD that I had bought for him in the local supermarket some weeks ago.

He's seen the movie twice in the cinema. He's acted key scenes out many times. He sings the songs in the car on the way to school in the morning (I know! And the poor boy has inherited his mother's non-musical voice). And now we watch the DVD most afternoons after school. Sometimes twice. Boo Boo and Possum like the movie too. Boo Boo has even learned to say "Mamma Mia". And sometimes Mum and Dad turn the TV right up, and we all dance in the living room. It's a sight (and sound) to behold.

And no, I won't post a video of that.

Mamma Mia indeed!

Hallo Heike!
Als die ersten Lieder von ABBA im TV waren,hast Du wie ABBA in der Living getanzt und auch gesungen. Diese Songs sind heute noch ein Hit.

Now, ik kan me heel goed voorstellen hoe het daar soms aantoe gaat. Heb ja al een beetje ervan meegemaakt met de CD van ABBA.
Maar, ja dat is wel heel bijzonder voor beaver. Looking forward for the video.

Wow! What a hit! I have to confess I've not seen 'Mamma Mia' but might have to try to see it now after such a glowing review!

Happy bday Beaver!!!

Are the pox (poxes?) all gone?
