As we were driving to get dinner, Miles requested some music. "You know that song 'I Want a Mom'?" "Uhhhh..." I'll admit, I was already sweating. I did NOT know the song he was talking about, and he has very little patience when asked to repeat or explain himself further. Negative patience, in fact.

Miles started belting this single line out on repeat today. Never heard it before and can't even take a stab at what it might be. Any guesses?
Miles is always picking up new songs and reciting them to us, and we always have fun trying to figure out exactly what song it is ("Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed" was a recent one that stumped me for a few minutes).
