Last night my 2yr old son and I were playing a game I think I’ll call “Human iPod.” That is when, to get him to go to sleep, he says the name of a song, you sing it, and then this repeats until he says, “That’s it.” You are then free to leave the room.
He repeats a regular sequence – Baa Baa Black Sheep, ABC, Doe-A-Deer, “Here’s the Story” (yes, the Brady Bunch theme song), Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and Frosty the Snowman. At any given time he may start singing along, and often in the car you can hear him do some of the shorter ones start to finish all by himself.
Last night he stuck a new one in there on me: Shall I Compare Thee. I said, “Really?”" He said, “Yeah.” So I proudly sang Sonnet 18 to my 2yr old son.
I hope he asks for it every night. If I catch him singing it to himself on car rides I am taking that show on the road. :)
