I was doing my usual chores in the kitchen one morning, when I heard singing coming from the next room. I peeked around the corner and caught T singing and banging on his toy drum. I listened unnoticed for a few minutes and this is what I heard...
T: (In a slightly Jamaican accent) Ladies lift your glasses, I know what you need....SHAGGY!
(bangs on his drum) (continues singing) They don't call me Mr. Lover because I like ice cream, they call me Mr. Lover because ... I like ice cream (actual lyrics=fulfill dreams)
Mama: What ya doin bud?
T: Singing mama. Shaggy is nice.
Mama: Oh, yah, why?
T: Because he really likes ladies and gives them what they need.
Mama: What do the ladies need?
T: (long pause) ICE CREAM!
Probably not what Shaggy is singing about giving the ladies, but I didn't correct him. He is only 4 after all. And as far as music choice, I love Shaggy, he is all about the ladies. He sings about loving your mother, God being a woman, staying in school, not doing drugs and not joining gangs. If T learns these things from Shaggy plus what Shaggy really means by giving a woman what she needs, what's the harm?
I haven't shown pictures of the back of my kids in a while so here is a picture of T's head. My hus still doesn't want photos on the Internet of our children's faces, so I still respect that.
