Songs with Sophie and Sam

Current Mood: accomplishedaccomplished
Current Music: The Revillos! - Snatzomobile (Live)
We spent our holiday on Monday visiting my niece and nephew, pictured below. My nephew is the one wearing the butterfly wings (or boyterfly wings, as the case may be.) Sam is quite adept at making up songs, generally in a minimalist vein, with one line of lyrics comprising both the title and the entirety of the song, repeated as necessary. His major work at the moment is called “Vuh-vuh-vuh iolin.’ He favored us with a new work called “I like horses and I like pigs,” but his big sister Sophie, mischievous smile on her face, whispered something in his ear, and then with a big grin he changed the words to “I like horses and I like POOPY!” and then cackled with glee. As did all of us. I love kids.

Yeah, Stefanie and I found the wings for him, after he announced that he wanted to be a butterfly for Halloween, and there was controversy among his parents when it seemed that most of the butterfly costumes they could find had pink frilly wings and included a tutu. So we found these ones and placated his Dad by telling him it was wings for a MANarch BOYterfly.
Whatever works.
