That's Going to Be A Tough One to Explain to the Other Parents

Every year, the elementary school music teacher selects a musical.  His classes watch a bit of it each week on video, and they learn all the songs.  The last one was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Q-ster, arriving home from school: We started watching the musical of the year.  It's Mary Poppins!

Me: That's great!  We love Mary Poppins.  All those fun songs.

Q-ster, thoughtfully:  I hope that when I'm in fourth grade, we sing Les Miserables.  I'm going to ask Mr. G whether we can choose it.

Me: . . . um, yeah, don't get your hopes up on that.
