Singing And The "Rain"

Once upon a time a young lad came up with this nifty game...


Unfortunately, he eventually became a little too enthusiastic about it and instead of pouring the water all over himself, he started pouring it all over Mommy! So, we had a little talk...

...and then we had another little talk....

...and then we had a third (muuuuch longer, muuuuch more specific) talk and "we"  finally got the idea and continued to pour the water, but now into the other cup. (Thank goodness, because Mommy was getting pretty darn drenched!)



















And everyone was sooooo happy...

 ...that, just like they do in the movies, we broke out into song...


(Yes, you "heard" that right, there even was a silent verse in there. Unfortunately you can't see me mouthing the words back. I really do a spectacular silent verse. You are sooo missing out.)

And then we danced and spun and high-kicked our way off to bed!


p.s. This morning, from his bedroom window, Dash spied 5 peacocks out in our front yard. He enjoyed watching them for a while until they all started to walk in the street, at which point he began scolding them, "No, no, no! No, no, no!" And then realized that they couldn't hear him, so he insisted on going out on the balcony and scolding them some more. Much to his dismay, they never did get out the street. Obviously their mothers didn't teach them all the rules!
