Oh, Hail.... Not you too.


I love running errands when I only have one child with me. Bert has the luxury of working from home when he wants, so I take advantage and will run errands while the "big kids" are playing or watching a movie. Hail is still not considered a "big kid" simply because when left to entertain himself, he usually chooses the toilet or eating Barbie shoes as his hobby. I enjoy our one-on-one time though. Not to mention, he still has no opinion when it comes to what type of music we are listening to, which stores we are going in, and how much candy he can have at the check-out. Well... that is, until now. Saturday I ran to the grocery store, Hail in tow, to get just a few items. As soon as we got in the car, I happily turned off the kids songs cd and tried to find a grown-up station to listen to.

Hail: MOMMMM-AAAA! (In the exact same tone Lucy says Momma when I insist she lets her brothers play in her room.)

Me: What Buddy?

Hail: Tar! TAR! TAR!!!! Mommm-aaaaa! MOMMM-AAAA! TARRRRR!

Me: What in the world are you trying to tell me? You see a star? Where? I don't see it. Where
is it?

Hail: TARRR! Tink-a-tink-a! TARRR! Tink-a-tink-a! Momma!

Me: You've got to be kidding me. (Re-inserting kids songs cd)

Hail immediately began dancing and singing. I tested him to make sure that was really what he wanted and that I didn't just distract his thought pattern. Turning it back to Kelly Clarkson, I belted out "Since you've been gone..."

Hail: NOOOOOO! MOMM-AAAAA! TARRRRR! PEASE!!! PEASE!!! Tinka-tinka!!!

I've now lost total control of my own car.

Umm, I think I'd prefer Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to you attempting to sing Kelly Clarkson too, Holly. :)
