No Mommy!

My cutie pie being silly in the car
I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned this - in a previous life (i.e. college student teaching) I was an elementary music teacher.  Spending all day around little kids, playing with fun instruments and singing.  I wasn't quite ready to give up my goals of performance, but I loved that semester.  

I've incorporated that aspect of my personality into parenthood.  I constantly sing to Noah - every book has it's own melody.  I can't even read Goodnight Moon without singing.  And, as of late, I'm constantly singing nursery rhymes or other cute songs.

In the car, I've started singing my 2 go-tos: The Wheels on the Bus and Itsy-Bitsy Spider.  Noah knows the motions and sings along.  When I say "The Baby on the Bus" he rubs his eyes and says "wah wah wah."   Seriously, my boy cracks me up!

Well, the other day, I started to sing It's a Small World.  Instantly, I heard "Mooooom-my."  So I stopped.  I started again... "Mooooooom-my."  I switched songs and we were golden.

The other night, I started again and instead of just the "Moooooom-my" I got a 22 month old shaking his head "no" while saying "No Mommy."

Apparently, even at 22 months and having not been on the ride in probably 16 months, he doesn't want to hear that song.  I'm okay with skipping the ride!  But, I thought it was too cute not to share!


  1. So cute that even at that age that song can

  2. I'd like to say they outgrow their aversion to that song, but it probably won't happen. You either love it, or you don't. Luckily, I love it. BTW... cute pic!

  3. That is hysterical! Love the picture by the way - what a cutie!
