Part of our daughters’ bed-time routine, as I’ve mentioned before, is singing songs. Sometimes they sing with me, but usually they let me sing to them unaccompanied (as long as they get to choose the songs).
Last night Sparky asked for her usual, "My Bonnie," which she calls "My Bunny." We were all very goofy, and after singing the song, I noodled around and came up with an excruciatingly silly verse, just because I’m the world’s silliest mommy. I’ll spare you the details, but it’s a verse appropriate for a child in potty training – all I’ll say. The girls giggled with appreciation and the feeling that they were getting away with something naughty, and then Sparky turned to me with a serious look.
"Mama, is that how you sing ‘My Bunny" in SPANISH?"
Yes. Yes, it is, Sparky.
