This is Eric's favorite song that Grandma has been singing to him since he was a baby. One day, he started singing along, and we soon realized he knew the entire thing. I'll write the lyrics down so you can follow along. Some of it is hard to understand. Oh-and please excuse the elmo drill in the background....we're lucky Nick stayed as quite as he did. :)

He starts singing his ABC's....but gets into the song eventually.


One day while walking down the street I passed a goldfish store

And looking in the window, was a boy you would adore

His eyes were on a goldfish who kept looking at the boy

When suddenly that little fellow, shouted out with joy

Little Goldie Goldfish - come out and play with me (he uses some artistic liscensing here.....)

Little Goldie Goldfish - I'm lonesome as can be

Gee - I wish I was a fish, so I could swim like you

We'd catch a whale, by the tail, and sail the ocean blue

That would be delicious, we'd frolic with our fins

All the other goldfish, would think that we were twins

(we'd build a home of seaweed, in the bottom of the sea) forgot that line

Little Goldie Goldfish, Little Goldfish (more artistic liscensing......)

Come out and play with me

GREAT Conversations

Eric and I have had some great conversations lately. Here's my 2 favorite from the day.

I picked him up from his MOPS class and he ran to show me his craft.

Eric "Look Mommy, I made you a craft!"
Mommy "Oh Eric, I love it, what's it about?"
Eric "Samuel"
Mommy "What's Samuel doing?"
Eric "He's at church and he's sleeping, and then he wakes up."
Mommy "Then what happens?"
Eric "God say Hi, and Samuel say 'God, I not call you..."

That's as far as he could go..... hehe

And then we were just chatting about the Bob and Larry songs on the car ride home, we dicussed how proud I was of him for staying dry. His response was:

Eric "I stay dry - had no 'a-kee-dents' - I tell my teacher 'I gotta go potty' - Daddy be so proud - and soooo happy - ALL my friends be so happy (that) I stay dry"
Mommy "I know...we are all so happy that you stayed dry this morning. And did you eat all your lunch."
Eric "Yes mommy, I eat it all gone. I so so so so Big."
Mommy "You are so big. What do you want to be when you get bigger?"

After thinking about it for a few seconds.....
Eric " A mommy!"
Mommy "A mommy?!?! You want to be a mommy when you get big?"
Eric "I want to be just like YOU mommy!" heart just melts!!
