Kids are great. Evan has so much personality. He really keeps us laughing, whether it is just making silly faces, talking with a British accent, or singing My Humps (which I honestly have no idea where he learned and I am looking for the culprit for a harsh repremand). Not to say that we don't welcome and encourage our children listening to music, we just push them to listen to only really great music. I was tucking him into bed and he asked me to sing him a night night song. This is a pretty regular thing. However, I don't remember a prouder moment than when he chose the Bad Religion song, "Los Angeles is Burning" for the lullaby.
He is a Sunbeam at church now and after class last Sunday, I asked him if they sang any fun songs in singing time.
He said, "yes, we sang the knee song."
"Oh, head, shoulders, knees and toes?" I asked.
"No, the knee song. The I am a Child of God knee song."
"I am a Child of God, and so my knees are great."
"Oh...yeah, I LOVE that song!"
