My #1 fan
I think that the Bean may like music and singing just as much as her Mama. She has always loved to listen to music since she was born. Now that she's a little older, she is starting to learn a few simple songs and "sing" along with them. By "sing" I mean she gets about ever 4th or 5th word right. Since she "knows" so many songs, she randomly will pick a word in it for the title. For instance, "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" is just "'star," and "The B-I-B-L-E" is Bible, etc. When we were potty training, we were looking for things to pass the time sitting in the living room all day long, so I made the mistake of letting her watch Barney. I say mistake b/c she immediately took a liking to Barney, and started asking to watch him all the time. So I DVR'd two of his shows. Well, to get through potty training week, let's just say we watched them a lot. She knows EVERY song on them and has made up her little one-word titles for them. So she wants Mommy to sing them to her, oh, about 1,000 times a day!! Literally, she's constantly (and I do not use that word lightly) saying, "Mommy sing Special." "Mommy sing I Dwove You." "Mommy sing Twistin." "Mommy sing Essa." (Her word for Fiesta.) And the list goes on. Thank goodness she doesn't ask me to do the choreography. Wouldn't y'all like to see that? Scary. But you may see me walking around Wal-Mart or somewhere singing Barney tunes. Oh, the things we do for our kids!
