Elizabeth watched the Little Mermaid this afternoon. I was sitting on the couch, alternating holding Elizabeth, Annie and Maddie. In a good moment, we can get two kids on my lap and a third by the rest of us. But it only lasts a moment. Someone always gets jealous.
So, while I am juggling kids (literally), I started animatedly reciting the words along with the movie for the twins' benefit: "Les Poissons, les poissons, how I love les poissons..." Elizabeth turned and looked at me with an angry face. "Don't sing with MY movie."
So, I waited a couple of minutes and tried again, reciting some lines of Sebastian: "You gotta pucker up your liPPPs like this..." (Come on, with the lips sticking out...? It makes the twins smile.)
Elizabeth looked at me again. I have a feeling she's perfecting this look for her teenage years. The You-Are-Embarrassing-Me look. Then she tells me, "You can sing with Ariel."
Note- at this point in the movie, Ariel has NO VOICE. I got dissed by a 5 year old.
