|Yes, definitely distracted!|
Every once in a while he even tries to sing it himself, in a cute little basso, and accompanies his singing with a very serious face expression. (The lowest and the most serious version of the piece in the world, to be sure, but why not, anyway?)
As much as Troy likes the DVD, strangely enough, he prefers to watch Juan Diego singing 'Ah! mes amis" in concert, under the baton of Gustavo Dudamel, whom he lovingly calls "Doodah".
I could never understand how a 3-year-old could prefer a concert setting to a staged production, until last night I finally got a sound explanation.
So Troy asked to watch "Ah! Mes amis" on La Fille DVD, but as soon as he saw his favorite Juan Diego marching across the stage, along the green map-covered mountains, he said:
"Mama, let's take those mountains away from Mr. Juan Diego - they distract him from singing!"
Yeah, tell me about it: here in Toddler-Land we are having so much fun - you have no idea.
