For reasons I'm unsure of, whenever I ask Alexa to play the Paw Patrol theme song, or the PJ Masks theme song, or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song (and on and on), the first song that comes up is inevitably a knock-off and not the actual, original recording. My assumption is that the … Continue reading Year 4, Day 265
During Miles's bath last night, he started belting out a song while I was out of the room. It took me a second, but I finally realized what it was and, well, it was surprising. See if YOU can name that song! https://videopress.com/v/pSbprQk4?resizeToParent=true&cover=true&preloadContent=metadata
If anyone's curious, I am officially "Damn, this PJ Masks song SLAPS!" deep into parenting. I suppose you just learn to accept the reality you're given, and right now that reality is "PJ Masks music from the time we leave the house to the time we get to daycare." If I'm lucky, Miles will accept … Continue reading Year 4, Day 63
While he isn't quite ready for his favorite TV competition show, Miles absolutely loves singing. Sometimes they're songs we can sing along to together (when he allows me to join him). Other times they're songs he's picked up at daycare that I don't know what the hell they are. This morning, he started merrily singing … Continue reading Year 4, Day 39
Miles is very protective (or whiny, depending on your perspective) of certain things, one of which is music. If he has deemed something "his song" and you start singing it, you'd best be ready for a swift and decisive (and shrill and, yes, whiny) verbal assault. "No!" Miles will scream. "That's MY song! Don't do … Continue reading Year 3, Day 359
Just in time for the weekend, Miles has brought another new song home from daycare to repeat ad nauseam. He started singing it merrily tonight and was only stopped by his need for sleep at bedtime. "The ants go marching one by one hurrah, hurrah. The ants go marching one by one hurrah, hurrah..." In … Continue reading Year 3, Day 353
During yet another failed attempt to coax Miles into taking a nap this afternoon, I put him in bed, snuggled up next to him, and started an "Old McDonald" YouTube video. This, of course, set in motion a cascade of children's songs, as YouTube auto-queued video after video. Well one of us sure started getting … Continue reading Year 3, Day 64: Name That Song UPDATE!
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). Well we've finally encountered one that we have absolutely no idea … Continue reading Year 3, Day 14: Name That Song!
Miles coughed throughout the night and while he was in pretty good spirits this morning, we figured we'd play it safe and get him in to see his pediatrician today. I got Miles up and brought him to bed with us as Jaclyn dialed the doctor's office. "Mommy's calling the doctor," I said to Miles. … Continue reading Year 3, Day 13
