How’s your morning so far? Our morning is not too good. Hubby and Z came back home early this morning with sad, long faces. After a week, the neighborhood basketball court is still closed. They were told the paint is still drying. Now we’re wondering just what kind of paint takes a week to dry?! Tsk, tsk.
Well, if our mornings are uneventful, our nights are more interesting. I told hubby the earlier we can get the kids to sleep, the more time we have for ourselves later. Other parents will call this their special bonding time with the kids but we’re just plain tired and want them out of the way so we can do what we want. haha!
So after dinner, I read them stories I found online (Click here for some great stories with cool animation!).
Then I sang to them nursery rhymes and children songs like Baa baa black sheep, Row row row your boat, London bridge, etc. But imagine, my 17 month old just stared at me with this utterly bored expression on his face. Awww, I got so sad talaga. I knew I couldn’t sing but I was hoping my baby wouldn’t notice. And that’s when it hit me. After listening to John Mayer and Jason Mraz I realized these nursery songs didn’t stand a chance! So whew, it’s not me but the songs pala. hahaha!
Good thing hubby stopped playing his Final Fantasy game and took over. He played Jason Mraz songs for them. The two kids scrambled to get their guitars and all three huddled together for some music bonding.
Here’s a video I took of them. Okay, let me explain what’s happening. The music, Everything is Sound, by Jason Mraz is playing in the iPad. Z (on the right) wants to learn to play this song on his guitar so he’s asking his Dad what the chords were. You can hear hubby telling him the chords at the start of the vid.
Little Zack wanted to sing the song but couldn’t. At barely two, his vocabulary is still limited. But watch how he tried singing the song at 00:24 even with his limited vocab. Kakatuwa! With matching rockstar expression pa.
That’s our future rock star. When you see him 20 years later, remember you saw him first here in his mommy’s blog. hahaha!
