In 3rd grade, I told my mom one day that I was going to put on a play in our basement, and she was to invite family over to watch and make some coffee and cake to serve. Mom then found me an old wig of hers and died it red. I had received the Annie locket (from Avon!), so wearing that, a red dress, and my newly dyed wig, me and my friend from down the road put on a play. My friend was "Molly". Then, we finished our short play by stepping up onto the ledge of our fireplace, and singing along to "Tomorrow". Ahh, memories.
I, of course, own the movie (on DVD) and over Christmas break, introduced Keifer to it one day as we were playing. She must have liked it, because a few days ago, out of the blue, she said, "watch Annie", which blew me away. She remembered this movie! Was she going to be a fellow Annie fan, just like mama?
So, we trekked down to the downstairs TV and I put it on. K prefers to watch the scenes that have songs and dancing in them, and she quickly has caught on to the fact that "the doggie" is named 'Sandy'. So cute. Just another reason to gush over my girl.
