Have you ever been in your car, singing along at the top of your lungs to a song on the radio – yes, broadcast radio, not the iPod – and then looked at the guy driving through the intersection in front of you, and notice that he too, is singing along with the same exact song? Do you suddenly feel as if you are somehow cosmically linked with everyone who is listening to and singing along with that song? Or at least does it make you laugh and think “Wow, do I look that silly?”
That happened to me this morning. I totally don’t remember what song it was, but I like to sing along with a song if I know it because it seems to totally entertain Cooper. And it did make me laugh to see the guy in the Jeep, singing totally at the top of his lungs with the same song.
Cooper has begun singing of his own volition Itsy Bitsy Spider, complete with hand movements, and some other song that seems to involve sounds like “bopbop” and hand movements along the lines of blowing kisses with your hand. I don’t recognize it at all. But I am also not up on most of my little kid songs. I am behind!
