Saw Happy Feet . Finally. It is so cute. Adorable misfit ( tone deaf and fuzzy ) turns into the hero. It reminds one of Jonathan Livingston Seagull - a bird that dares to be different from the pack and is ostrasized for it before it finally braves the odds and proves to be of use to the community. And I did not know so much about penguins. The father nurtures and the moms go out fishing. I loved the songs, all of them. Anush did not watch the film as i had hoped she would. But she was drawn to the dances and the peppier songs. She has taken to doing whirls and shaking her arms about in a more defined dance.
More on Anush. She repeats the choicest things from what I say.
- I said" You must move your butt in or you will fall off the chair" She chanted "butt" again and again in great delight.
- "Are you eating vada, baby?" - she kept saying" vada baby"
- I was on the phone and said "Wow" to my MIL and Anush went woooooooowwwww! in the very same congratulatory tone
She did the most moving thing last night. I get pampered by my mother with a head massage, weekly once. I get the oil and the comb and then the moda. I was just fetching the former two last nght, when Anush noticed and got the moda for me to the exact spot where it is done. So now I am indulged by both my mom and my daughter!!
This is what they call heaven.
