Sweet song...

The spud is very keen on music these days. Following a trip to the wonderful Horniman Museum and an enthralled visit to the music room there he is keen to identify any wind instrument in a piece of music as 'a trumpet' and anything with strings as 'a piano' and he loves the music box that came with his baby mobile so much that he still plays it to himself nearly every night,

He's really in to nursery rhymes at the moment and is particularly keen on 'Baa Baa Black Sheep' and 'Ringa Ringa Rosy', although is known to mangle 'See Saw Margery Daw' on a regular basis too.

Today however he excelled himself. As I rewarded him for being Very Grown Up and offered him a treat from his bag of Halloween goodies, he rooted around in the bag and started singing a little ditty which you can sing along with, to the tune of 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star':

Little sweeties, little sweeties
How I love you little sweeties
Little little little sweeties
give me little little sweeties
Little sweeties little sweeties
how I love you little sweeties.

Following this, he smiled up at me beatifically, chose a lollipop, fluttered his eyelashes a few times and, in his bestest, squeakiest, cutest voice said 'can I have another little sweetie Mummy?'.

And I said.................






'No!'

You know, I love him to bits... but that's one tune I'm not falling for.

Hahahaha ... Spud's a charmer! You showed great restraint. I would have caved in for sure.

Diggin the new nursery rhyme. What a little cutie! And I am impressed with your resolve in saying NO. I'm sure mine might have crumbled under the same pressure!

Genius....they do have their ways don't they. We would have done the same with the Halloween goodies. If I hadn't eaten them all.
Our son's favourite son now is a version of Spiderman called SpiderNappy. That's it. Just Spidernappy with otherwise normal lyrics. Lucky these boys don't realise you can't actually change the lyrics to songs - it's a legal thing :)

Loving your blog. It's a brilliant read. I will be back to read more once my little no.5 finishes filling this nappy.
Best wishes, crazy xx

Sparx said...

SAHM-I-AM - yes, but it's just so calculating, like he knows he can use his charm...

Nicola - maybe I really am a meanie... no crumbling here...

Nancy - thanks - but it's not so hard to resist them when they've tried it on for the 50th time quite frankly... you'll be fine...

MumsRock - spidernappy!!! I love it, genius! Might sing it meself.

Gringa - "knock 'em back early!" Gal, you ALWAYS crack me the hell up.

Crazy - No. 5???? You have 5 of them???? Holy schmoly...

Aw, he's brilliant! Very smart indeed and knows just how to twist your heart into his hands. Glad you didn't fall for it, because I would have completely!
