Mr. Lover

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.

Haha! My kids get song lyrics wrong like that all the time. Example: "I love Rock and Roll! Put another dime in the juice box, baby!"

Perhaps I should play them that Shaggy song :-)

What program did you use to make the swirlies? As you know from my blog, my stuff comes out like Perez Hilton.

Yup, my son's hair does the same dang thing.

Shaggy is fine in my book.

And as for the pics, my husband is exactly the same way.

How adorable is he! The ladies really DO like ICE CREAM!

And the hair...looks like my son's. I always thought they could use it for hurricane studies. What do you think?

I'm glad you're back. I was missing your posts.

Did I say the part about missing you yet? Because I've been gone, and I have missed you terribly. Not sure I can get back regularly, but I will try...love your witty writing and tender heart.
