Out of the Mouth of Babes…

April 24th, 2008

Kenny sings to himself all the time.   It’s usually a Veggie Tales song or a Boz song or something from his Rolly Pollie class.   I’m talking “This Little Light of Mine” or “Circle, Triangle, Square” or “The More We Get Together.”     Sweet stuff.   That changed today.

While I was getting dressed this morning, I heard him singing to his stuffed animals in his room, and I tip toed around the corner to listen in, not wanting him to see me.   I expected, “Jesus Love the Little Children” or “The B-I-B-L-E” to be drifting through the air.   Instead, I hear his tiny little boy voice sing softly, “If you’re doe-in’ frew hell, keep on doe-in, don’t doe back, if yer scared don’ show it…”  

I have written many times over the last two years about Kenny’s  affection for  Rodney Atkins’ music.   (He actually just went through a  three month phase where he didn’t want to listen to it, but just this week, he heard one of the singles on the radio, and requested it in the car.   It’s been playing ever since.   THANK GOODNESS because that  three month Rodney-hiatus involved an obsession with this random “Go Diego Go” cd that was absolutely mind-boggling torture for me.)

The title song  on the CD, “Goin’ Through  Hell”  was the first of Rodney’s singles to be released,  and one that Kenny  (and I) especially like to crank up when we’re driving in the car.   It’s a great, catchy tune with really clever lyrics.     And why did it never occur to me that the two-and-a-half year old who knows every word to “I’ve Got Peace Like a River” would not also catch every single word to “Goin’ Through Hell?”   And that’s not all…

Fast forward to dinner time, and Kenny asked me to put in the “Dancing CD” so that he could cut a rug while I cut vegetables.   I obligingly popped in Abba Gold, and he was off like a firecracker, running exuberantly around the living room, jumping up and down and giggling.   I even took a chopping block break to dance with him for a few numbers, and we giggled ourselves silly.   After dinner, as he headed to the bath, he starts singing, “Dancing Queen” (although it came out more like “Dancing Tween”).  

Oh boy.   I can’t wait till he starts belting out these new tunes in Sunday School…
