Future Sondheim?

Anyone spending time with AJ knows that he loves to sing and dance. He has become quite adept at writing his own lyrics:

Rain, rain
Go away
Rain, rain
Go away
The old man is snoring
Went to bed
And bumped his head
Couldn't get up
It the morning...


Happy Birthday to my daddy
Happy Birthday to my daddy
(repeat incessantly)

Yes Jesus love me
Yes Jesus love me
Bible tell me so
(and during a conversation about rabbits in the front seat, from the back seat we hear)
Yes Jesus love the bunny rabbit
Bible tell me so

On the way home from Galveston he began chanting "1...2...3...1...2...3...1...2...3..." over and over and over and over....I tried to distract him with "1, 2, buckle my shoe, 3, 4, shut the door"

He began singing the following little ditty:
"1...2...3...
Buckle those shoes
1...2...3...
Shut the door
1...2...3...
Buckle those shoes
1...2...3...
Shut the door
Go to lunch
Get some ice cream..."

Now that I think about it, he may just have an idea there....later, folks!

I'm beginning to warm people with little girls to keep them away from AJ. He's becoming quite the little playboy, and has often been spotted lying on the playground surrounded by little girsl who are rubbing his hands, feet, and head. And HE'S ONLY THREE!

Oops, that should actually be "warn" not "warm".

Uh, yeah, Bethany has started singing from the back seat incessantly, "Ah, Bee, lmnopeee!! Ah, Bee, lmnopeee!!"

She and AJ could make beautiful music together!"

Is this the making of the new generation of "Colossal"?
