How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?

I watched The Sound of Music after a very long time. I was thrilled. It was a godsend.

Two days ago I was trying to soothe my daughter to sleep and I realized I have forgotten my nursery rhymes. I tried some songs from the movie but I couldn’t remember all the words.

I admit it is a trite flick and no one should prolly admit that they still sway their heads to Edelweiss but goodness, did it tag at the heartstrings!

Where did all the fun of childhood go? We knew so many songs and it was completely normal for us to break into any tune even as we stomped in the puddles. Life was great. No one ever told us that growing up would be this stressful.

For a movie made in 1964, this flick takes the rolex.

    The fun of childhood is still here. You’ll be able to experience it again through your baby. Trust me, I know.
