"Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way."

I have been away for a little bit to spend the last few weeks of summer with my little ankle-biter and get ready for the big day of school. I can't believe how fast this summer has gone! I am glad though to get back in the swing of the school year. I love summer but sometimes it can be troublesome being an event planner everyday. Now the time has come for alarm clocks, packed lunches, backpacks, and homework. Our start has come and went last week. All seems to be going well once we got over some bumps on the first day. I should have known starting a new school, new students, new teachers, and new everything would not go as perfectly planned. There were some hiccups along the way, especially at the end when it came to leave. My little ankle-biter use to be a buser at her old school and now she is a walker. She got a little confused when she was told she wasn't on the bus list and even more confused when someone told her that she was a walker. It all worked out and all was made right when we got home and had an ice pop.

Today will be I am sure one of many days I wish that it was either summer still or my little ankle-biter was still to young for school. Today happens to be the day when the amazing "Mary Poppins" premiered at the Grauman's Chinese Theater in 1964. My little ankle-biter and I absolutely adore that movie. I was even surprised that she picked out a movie star costume for Halloween over me making her a Mary Poppins costume. Well if she won't wear it than I suppose I will. EEPS! I better get cracking. I could use Mary Poppins special nanny magic right about now.

I would love to sit at home watch the movie and of course sing and dance along with every song. Today would have been a perfect day to do sidewalk chalk paintings because it was sunny, then rained, then was sunny. So it would have washed the paintings away in the movie. I have seen these chocolate spoons all over Pinterest, gosh I love that site, and how cute would they be as an addition to your movie viewing experience?

If anyone is thinking of having a Mary Poppins Birthday or is looking for a theme you have to see these amazing decorations from Etsy. I am thinking next year for either the little ankle-biter's or mine or we might just have a Mary Poppins party for the fun of it. Why not?

I am really hoping that this year is the year that I can take my little one to the live performance. We live close to NYC so we could see the real thing but also there is several houses that have performances near Christmas time. That would be amazing all aspects. I know for sure that the one in NYC sells the bird handle umbrellas which is something I have wanted since I was my daughter's age. I use to hold it out and jump off safely high places and pretend that I was flying down like her. Yes I was one of those children! Have any of you seen it? Is it as amazing as I have heard it is?
