Gavin has always liked the "Name Game." He cracks up particularly when I sing, "Shirley Shirley Bo Birley, Banana Fana Fo Firley, Mi My Mo Mirley, Shirley!" Lately, I've started singing his name to the tune of "Bingo" to try and teach him how to spell his name. (Again....the teacher in me.) So, last night, we had to run to the bank, and I started...
"There was a Mommy who had a boy and Gavin was his name-o.
G-A-V-I-N, G-A-V-I-N, G-A-V-I-N, and Gavin was his name-o."
Gavin says, "Do Percy!" So, I sang...
"There was a train and he was green and Percy was his name-o.
P-E-R-C-Y, P-E-R-C-Y, P-E-R-C-Y, and Percy was his name-o."
He cracked up! "Do Parker!" Ok...a little harder, but doable.
"There was a boy who had a friend and Parker was his name-o.
PAR-KER, PAR-KER, PAR-KER, and Parker was his name-o."
Again, big smiles. "Do Cement Mixer!" Um, sorry, Gav. Mommy's not that talented. :)
I love you, though!
