My friend Lise has a new blog and it's inspired me to get writing mine again... at least for a while! Or a day, who knows...

Does anyone else have a toddler who is obsessed with songs? I'm sure there are many.... but can they carry a tune? Ethan can sing so many tunes it's somewhat freaky. Tonight was beyond the norm even for Ethan. Just before bed I was the lucky test audience for his new song, "Twinkle Twinkle little Dinkle". I kid you not. Dinkle is his willy of course. The song was performed along with actions including the tugging of the aforementioned member resulting in what my brother used to refer to as a "strong willy". *Sigh*.

Staying on the subject of songs, Ethan has a new hobby - to request I sing a song about an object of his choice. This is testing even my knowledge of songs and music.. At bath time I was requested to sing a song about robots. Now, scanning my internal database of songs, I decided that the rap "Half Man, Half Machine" by Goldie Lookin' Chain was unsuitable. I came up with Robot Rock by Daft Punk. Anyone familar with this particular tune will know that there is very little to it lyrics wise, chiefly one line. "Rock, Robot Rock!" (and actually, Pete and I prefer to sing our own version, "Cock, Robot Cock!" so of course I had to ensure I didn't slip into that! Though considering the subject of Ethan's own songs, perhaps he would have preferred this version!). I soon got bored singing this one line over and over, but if you have a two year old, you'll know how long they like things to go on for... if only I'd come up with "I am not a Robot" by Marina and the Diamonds... At least I'd have had a bit more variety then!

Well, I'm going to get back to my red wine... If anyone reading this hasn't taken a look at Lise's blog, hop along here and you're guaranteed a chuckle! http://howtobeadomesticdisgrace.blogspot.com/
