My kids make me laugh

You know, I think I can kind of tell I like being a Mom. I am the sterotypical Mom who still share stories of my kids with anyhow who will listen. Not that they care. But some times, at least to me, something is too good not to share.

My children make me laugh. Cordie makes me laugh because she mimics words and sounds, often unexpectedly. We often joke with Duncan when we're going somewhere we'll tell "Come On Duncan! To The Upstairs!" and make that do do do do sound (like this). Well we did that the other day coming home and Cordie totally mimicked the do do do sound. We about doubled over laughing.

Duncan loves to sing. Both kids do actually, but seeing as Cordie's words are quite limited, we can a bit more legitimately say Duncan loves to sing. We sing songs from Yo Gabba Gabba, Thomas, Backyardigans, and fun things like Peter Gabriel, Black Eyed Peas, Tom Cochran. But the funny part is he has his own words. And don't try to correct him.

"I Gotta Feelin'" by the Black Eyed Peas (which he can almost sing the entire song of, very funny in itself) there is a line "We'll paint the town". Except Duncan says "We'll paint the tail". No honey, it's town. "No it's not Mom, it's tail.". If you say so sweetie.

"Life Is A Highway" (Cars soundtrack). "Life is a Highway! I'm going to drive in on my lawn!" (as opposed to all night long).

Yo Gabba Gabba Keep Trying, Keep trying... there is a part where it says "don't stop, don't stop, you'll get it right", except the Duncan version is "No Socks, no socks, in your eye..."

And again, he is quite insistent that those are the words, making it that much more awesome.

What's also funny is he mumbles with songs when he doesn't know the words - he tries, and he wants to learn them, and so he tries and sings anyhow (which is awesome). But when he gets to the part he knows he belts it out. Often this is only two words of a song.

Yeah my kids make me laugh.
