Sound of Music
Since last Thursday, every night after dinner, we put on The Sound of Music, and show Zara 3 clips from the movie (thanks to DVD scene select) : 1) Maria teaching the Little Von Trapps to sing Do Re Mi 2) The puppet show put on by the Little Von Trapps 3) The Little Von Trapps bidding goodnight to the guests in their father's dinner party She loves it! Keeps asking for more (replay) after each song is sung (the below pix show her concentrating on the show) On Saturday, while on our way to Ipoh, she started singing the last word of the Do-re-mi song with me. This is how we sing together : Me : Doe a deer, a female Zara : Deer Me : Ray, a drop of golden Zara : Sun Me : Me, a name I call my Zara : Sef (Self) Me : Far, a long long way to Zara : Run Me : Sew, a needle pulling Zara : Dat (Thread) Me : La, a note to follow Zara : So Me : Tea, I drink with jam and Zara : Bed (Bread) Me : That will bring us back to Zara : DO And then she'll clap her hands upon completion of the song. Still a long way from Luke Von Trapp, but both Daddy and I were extremely surprised that she had actually learnt up the last words in 2 days. She also likes to hum the tune sung during the puppet play, but it goes something like this : Zara : *mumble mumble* eh- Hoo Hoo Last night, when I told her it's time for bed, she pointed to the TV set and said, "Put! Put! Bye Bye! Seep!" Haha.. she wanted me to play her Clip #3. After that song, she took my hand pointed upstairs, and said, "Go Seep!" See, I'm happy taking a rest from Barney!
