I have to say that one of my all-time favorite Sesame Street songs is “Do De Rubber Duck” which is a reggae-style song by Ernie (with much more of the cast joining in afterwards).
Since the Sesame Street CDs have been in rotation in my car lately, I’m quite often found with this song stuck in my head and, obviously, singing it to Kyle 🙂
Wednesday, as I was struggling to get him ready to leave in the morning, he finally stopped squirming when I reminded him that we would be listening to music. Suddenly, he was all ready to go and once he was strapped into his chair, he started “singing”. Listening to those jumbled words that sounded so familiar, I slowly realized he was singing Do De Duck! (pa-pa papapa…) Made me laugh out loud!
Of course, yesterday morning, as we got up later due to his 18-month checkup, he woke up on his own at 7am. As I lay in bed listening to him, I had to once again stop myself from laughing at the cuteness of his singing! “Pa pa papapa… pa pa papa… pa pa papa…” which is quite close to “Duck Rubber Duck, duck, rubber duck, rubber duck duck…”. After a good 5 minutes of this, he suddenly says “Rubba Duck!” before re-starting with the “pa pa papa…”
🙂 too cute for words, but still I try, because these are fond, warm, and beautiful memories 🙂
