We learned a song when Max was a baby while watching Nic Jr.
We were ridiculous parents.
God bless the t.v. for introducing us to Laurie Berkner and her music stylings! Back to the song . ..
It is a catchy little tune that goes something like this:
“My mom has a lion on her head,
My mom has a lion on her head,
My mom has a lion on her head
Aaaaand she keeps it there all day!
What does a lion say??”
There are several verses and they all end with the making of the named animal sound. When we found it and called it our own, we didn’t stop with animals. Anything that could be placed on the head was sung about and each kid has learned it in turn.
Tess has got some chonies on her head . . . Philip has a bowl on his head . . . Ellie has some spaghetti on her head . . .
That is to say that EVERYONE knows it.
The other day, I was getting Lu dressed for the day. That girl . . . she is the wiggliest and fastest bare booty we’ve had yet. She also really likes to adorn herself so we get some fun combos. The morning in question, she flipped over, sat up and tried to put the folded diaper around her neck. We laughed and I stuck the velcro together and made her a bonnet.
“Lucy has a diaper on her head,
Lucy has a diaper on her head,
Lucy has a diaper on her head
Aaaaaaand she keeps it there all day!
What does a diaper say??”
From the next room, I heard Gemma answer in song, “Poop! Poop! Poop, poop, poop!” Best. Song. Ever.
That Gemma is one smart cookie – sounds like she knows what she’s talking about.
