It's the simple things

Yesterday, my three-and-a-half-year-old nephew couldn't wait to show me his new DVD. "It's baseball! With Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra!" I can't tell you how cool it is to hear this little boy enthuse about Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra movies. He started with Anchors Aweigh, then he moved on to On the Town. His new movie addition is, of course, Take Me Out to the Ball Game, which he is already in love with. It may end up being his favorite of the three, given how much he loves baseball.

It's never too early to start the next generation on classic films!

    Next LA trip I'm definitely vegging with Matthew and letting him choose the movie! LOL

  2. I love it!! Those are some of the movies my kids started out with too. :) What fun!

    Best wishes,

  3. Wow, so exciting to hear such a young kid enjoying the classics! I hope that interest stays with him!

  4. Thanks, all! It's very cool. He tries to dance like Gene Kelly, which is just way too cute.

  5. Sounds like you may have a future Gene Kelly, on your hands..
