Movie Monday with Mary Poppins

It's been all snowy again here so our plans to enjoy being outside have been pushed to the back burner. Adelle's new thing however is Mary Poppins. We've watched it 4 times this weekend. I know there are a lot of people against kids watching TV but how could any parent object to watching Mary Poppins. I think she has some good points to teach kids as well as parents; 

Mary Poppins: In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun, and - SNAP - the job's a game!

I have to say the following quote is probably the most convicting! 

Bert: You're a man of high position, esteemed by your peers. And when your little tykes are crying, you haven't time to dry their tears... And see their thankful little faces smiling up at you... 'Cause their dad, he always knows just what to do...
George Banks: ...Well, look - I...
Bert: Say no more, Gov'ner. You've got to grind, grind, grind at that grindstone... Though childhood slips like sand through a sieve... And all too soon they've up and grown, and then they've flown... And it's too late for you to give - just that spoonful of sugar to 'elp the medicine go down - medicine go down - medicine go down. Well, so long, Gov'ner. Sorry to have troubled you

I think Monday's are going to become Movie Mondays. what do you think? Do you have movies that have taught you something?
