One of Nellie’s favorite movies is Tangled. She is in love with it. She got a Tangled Barbie doll for her birthday (which is cute and sweet and all, but have you ever had to deal with a foot of gnarly, matted Barbie doll hair? No? Well you haven’t lived, my friend.), has a few little action figures and asks to watch it about every other day.
We recently noticed that she was singing a song from Tangled, and I have tried multiple times to get it on camera to no avail. The other night, however, Nellie was in performance mode and decided to let me film her singing her little princess heart out.
To translate somewhat, Rapunzel sings “I could go running, and racing, and dancing, and chasing. And leaping, and bounding, hair flying, heart pounding. And splashing and reeling, and finally feeling that’s when my life be-giiiiiiiiiins!” and when she sings “begins”, she spins in a circle with her arms outstretched.
Nellie will run up and down our halls singing, “ah-runnin, ah-racin, a-chasin!” and it’s the cutest thing ever.
Watch out Broadway, here comes Nellie!
