- Munchie Mommy
- I live in a big city with hubby, Munchie (3) and Bear-Bear (almost 1). I enjoy taking the kids to the park, reading, swimming, singing the alto part to Palestrina masses, and painting.
Munchie was enthralled by the pumpkins at the grocery store and insisted that we buy one. This led to us making a pumpkin pie together, which turned out quite yummy. He made the above comment to me while we were scooping out the seeds. I thought it was pretty observant.
Next lesson: binomial nomenclature.
Most of my generation is familiar with the Sesame Street classic that Cookie monster sings. (If you're not, or if you'd like to reminisce, you can listen to it here). Munchie's grandma has a Sesame Street DVD featuring this song, and he has been singing it a great deal lately. He has also taken to improvising new verses, for example:
"C is for Fire truck, that's good enough for me!"
Since he doesn't yet read, we will allow for creative spelling, however, he does sometimes get it right, as is evidenced by the following:
"G is for Grandma..."
and my personal favourite:
"G is for Garbage, that's good enough for me!"
"In the day, the sun goes all the way up to the 14th floor. At night, the sun goes down, down, all the way to the sidewalk."
Note: We live on the 14th floor, which is pretty high, even for adults. I suppose when you are 3, that it is practically astronomical. Munchie tends to use the number "14" as a stand in for any very large number.
