It STUN me!

I so love it when William does something new that totally surprises and delights me.

A few months ago, I started singing the "Bumblebee" song to him. You know. "I'm taking home a baby bumblebee/Won't my mommy be so proud of me?/I'm taking home a baby bumblebee.../Ouch! It stung me!" You're supposed to cup your hands together as if you're really holding a bee, and he loved that. He laughed and laughed and "held" his baby bumblebee in his little chubby hands.

Well, I had forgotten about that song in the wake of Christmas, when we were working our way through all the Christmas songs that I only know about a third of the lyrics to. But last week, I thought of the "Bumblebee" song again and started singing it to him.

But before I could sing the last line, William jumped in and shouted, with a huge grin on his face, "Ow! It STUN me!"

He actually remembered the last line of the song AND got it right. Months after the fact. I squealed so loudly it's amazing I didn't set off the smoke detectors. I love this kid.
