My kids have been watching Mary Poppins a lot lately. They have already seen it several times, and now it is on repeat in the car. Needless to say, they can pretty much recite the entire movie to you.
Do you all remember the scene in which she is giving the children medicine because they had been outside in the rain? Just in case you don’t, I’ll give you a little recap…
She pours the medicine from the bottle onto three spoons. Jane takes hers first and exclaims “Lime Cordial! Delicious!” Michael then takes his and says “Strawberry. Mmmmm.” Mary Poppins gulps hers down and then says “Rum Punch! Quite Satisfactory.” She then hiccups in true alcoholic form.
So the other night we were at Chick Fil A and the kids were playing on the playground after dinner. A little boy came out there and had a red drink and Bryce asked what it was. I told him it was fruit punch. Of course then my kids had to have fruit punch. Brian took Rylie and Bryce inside and bought them both a fruit punch. They came back out to the playground and were running around with their drinks in hand, and every time Bryce would take a sip he would say “Rum Punch!”
Thank you, Mary Poppins. Now all of the other moms that were at Chick Fil A that night either think I'm an alcoholic, or that I serve drinks to my kids. That's just supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
