A Song for Sunday, plus.

I know that it is the weekend and therefore song time, but first I have to digress a bit. KayTar is currently pretend playing with the Sonic the Hedgehog wallpaper on the laptop. It is going something like this:

Come on Songick!
Wes go play!
You okay Songick?
Wan Gee Songick?
You wan it, you wan some Gee?
Oh, Songick.
Go fishin Songick?
Come on!
Is best spot fishin! (standing on her step stool, fake fishing)
Hello Songick.
Hi Tails.
Wan come wif me?
Play games?
Chonch you? (don't you?)
Wan go swimmin' at G's?
Oh, I will hep you! (she then walked to the screen and tried to grab him by the hand and pull him out of the screen)
Jump on tramponmean, Songick? (trampoline)
Wes go!
Wan go a G's house?
B's house?
Ridea motorcycle?
Yes Songick!
Put some shoes on?
Fank you! I welcome!
Wes go, Songick!
Ready Set GO!
Do counting Songick?

And so on. It is cracking us up. She's been at it for at least a half hour, and she is still going steady, playing with Wallpaper Sonic. She pretends a lot, especially with objects that aren't necessarily typical playmates. She plays with her babies and animals, of course, but she also befriends chairs and tables and puzzle pieces among other less popular playmates. "Come on Chair, wes go. Wes go playin, Chair. COME ON CHAIR!" Or with her shape puzzle pieces, "Oh my bueful family, SHAPES! Sooo cute shapes! Wes go." It is quite endearing. BubTar never went through this stage, so I don't know if it is unique to her in the way that it is "different" or just different from BubTar (as so many things are), but regardless, we love watching her while she is doing it. Any inanimate object is a possible playmate. She is just so into it. In fact, she caught me watching her and Sonic and she walked over and said, "Turn 'round? You face. Wook at computah!" LOL. Evidently she and Sonic were sharing a private moment and didn't want a spectator.

Contemplating the adventures she and Weaf might have together.

Okay, without further ado, the song for today.

Fall is here, hear the yell
Back to school, ring the bell
Brand new shoes, walking blues
Climb the fence, books and pens
I can tell that we're going to be friends
I can tell that we're going to be friends

Walk with me, Susie Lee
Through the park and by the tree
We will rest upon the ground
And look at all the bugs we found
Safely walk to school without a sound
Safely walk to school without a sound

Here we are, no one else
We walked to school all by ourselves
There's dirt on our uniforms
From chasing all the ants and worms
We clean up and now it's time to learn
We clean up and now it's time to learn

Numbers, letters, learn to spell
Nouns and books and show and tell
At playtime we will throw the ball
Back to class, through the hall
Teacher marks our height against the wall
Teacher marks our height against the wall

We don't notice any time pass
We don't notice anything
We sit side by side in every class
Teacher thinks that I sound funny
But she likes the way you sing

Tonight I'll dream while I'm in bed
When silly thoughts go through my head
About the bugs and alphabet
And when I wake tomorrow I'll bet
That you and I will walk together again
I can tell that we're going to be friends
I can tell that we're going to be friends
- We're Going to Be Friends, The White Stripes

I just love it when they come up with their own little games. Mine always sing little songs while playing.

I HAVE filmed it, BTW.

Cute KayTar.

This made me remember something about Ben that I had forgotten! Thank you.

When he was KayTar's age, he had two imaginary friends: Table-dee and Chair-dee! And...check it...they lived in TEXAS!

Sonic is big in our house, too. KayTar's adorable, as always.

KayTar is adorable. My third daughter at three started doing pretend games with the planets and their moons. I had a map of the solar system on the wall for her older sisters, and Rose became obsessed. We all had a planet name (I was earth); she dictated planet stories.

The Baby plays little pretend games too and it's so charming to have this little window into their sweet private minds...

I have written more than once about my all-consuming LOVE for Jack White. Love that song.

I love the commentary!! She is so imaginative! Mia hyper-focuses on the non-traditional things like marbles, cards, a string and then it has to go everywhere with us. She'll play with it for hours! Longer than she plays with her "regular" toys.

I remember that stage fondly. I can't wait until Elyse goes there.
