What Exactly Are You Teaching My Child?

My sister confessed. She came up with the police car/train wreck storyline from yesterday's post about Q's latest toy activity. Apparently, they also played military relief convoy.

She said, "If he picks up the phrase, 'Here are the supplies for the Sudanese refugees,' you'll have to forgive me."

With Q learning to apply makeup and use a microphone from Lara and now how to deliver humanitarian aid, what are his parents teaching him? Well, let me tell you. After entirely too much Guitar Hero in this household, our two-year-old can sing:

1)"She's my Cherry Pie."

That's quality parenting, if I do say so myself. Other favorite tunes:

2) The opening of Surrender ("Mommy's al-wight, Daddy's al-wight")
3) "Shout at da Devil"
4) "Wock-ing on da Moon"
5) "Message in a Bottle"

Cherry Pie is the most alarming, because he can deliver several lines with gusto and headbanging. As an antidote, we went all-acapella today, featuring the Eensy Weensy Spider and Twinkle Twinkle.

For those of you looking for a complimentary activity to karaoke, bars all over the country are starting to host Guitar Hero Nights. Wock on!

A rock-star, indeed! What a talented boy you've got.

I would say Q is a well rounded little fella. Nothing wrong with a little head-banging.

I'm intrigued by the Guitar Hero game.

After all this time, I finally figured out how to leave a comment! I'm not as computer lit as the rest of the family. Oh well, I'm enjoying your blog every time! Wock-on!

Karianna - We're hoping that we don't get in trouble with CPS for him knowing the wrong kind of songs.

Mamacita Tina - It's pretty fun, but I have lower tolerance for video games and can only play a song or two before I'm bored. Other people in this household though . . .

Grama Neese - welcome! :)

Well, at least he'll be able to entertain those refugees.
