I have just read a post over at Mummy. . . Mummy . . . Mum! which has reminded me of a conversation I had with Little Bean a few weeks ago whilst out in the car so I’ve had to dash back here and share it with you before I forget again . . .
Do you sing along to music when you’re in the car? I do, in fact sometimes I do it without realising as Super Amazing Mum will recall from our taxi ride in Berlin! I would never get up and sing at a Karaoke yet in the car and around the house (providing only the kids or Hubby are around) I will sing to my heart’s content. When Little Bean was two years old she would tell me to “please stop singing Mummy” but I ignored her and carried on. How at the age of three, she is starting to join in with me. She has almost got the words to Winnie The Pooh to a ‘t’ she just needs to speed up a bit.
But i digress! A couple of weeks ago whilst out in the car a song came on the radio called ‘Heaven’, it’s a dance tune but I can’t remember who sings it? I think its a girl called Emily but I could be totally wrong! Anyway, the song is playing and I’m singing along when Little Bean launches into conversation . . .
LB: Mummy, what is she saying?
Me: I think she’s saying “then I go” but I could be wrong.
LB: Quiet for a few moments contemplating what I had told her then – No Mummy, she’s saying “den er ker”
Me: Really? I don’t think she is sweetheart, I’m sure it’s something like “then I go”.
LB: Annoyed – NO Mummy! She’s saying “den er ker” see – then she sings along in the appropriate places
Me: OK sweetheart, if you say so.
LB: It is “den er ker” Mummy because its just like in Scooby Doo!
EH!?!?!?! She’s totally lost me now!!
