Another classic

My three-year-old watched this movie in its entirety this evening, a reward for going #2 on the potty:

I remember seeing this movie as a kid, one of the summer flicks shown at our local museum. We lived blocks away, and my dad (or sometimes my mom) would walk my older brother and I over there to see weekly Disney classics shown in the big auditorium. Those are some of my favorite childhood memories. We're definitely going to have to check Toby Tyler out from the library again before we go to the circus here in October. It was a great introduction for my boy to the wonders of the circus, and now I can't wait to see how he reacts to seeing it in person!

I was so impressed that my three-year-old actually sat and watched the whole thing, especially since it is not a cartoon. Add in the fact that we were able to "discuss" it afterwards and work on his verbal skills -- a nice bonus. And the going #2 on the potty? Made this Mama's day. No, her week. No, her month!!!!!

Hope you have had a great Saturday as well!

Yahoo!!!! I am the lucky recipient of the wonderful Esther Williams quilt. It is lovely and the theme is perfect for this summer's Olympics. Since swimming is one of my favorite events in the games, I feel that the little quilt will be a perfect match as I enjoy watching them. Thank you so much.
