Since our 4-year old has a penchant for saying the funniest things (to us at least – he seems distressed when we bust out laughing at his proclamations), I’m going to post on some of these funny kid quotes as they come.  This will also serve as a good repository for these treasures since I haven’t done the best job of writing them down and I don’t want to lose track of them.

 

 

Greensleeves

This is a baroque song you often hear around Christmas time.  I was goofing around on my classical guitar one time playing it and Kevin asked what the name of the song was.  I replied, “Greensleeves”.  The other day (several weeks later), his little brother was watching Little Einsteins which is chock full of classical music.  One of the songs sounded reminiscent of Greensleeves.  During the song, Kevin proclaimed:

“Daddy, Daddy…It’s the song you play on your guitar – GREEN SHIRT!!!”

I just keeled over laughing and he had that embarrassed smirk on his face. He had no clue why I was laughing.

Mannheim Steamroller

That brings me to tonight’s encounter.  While we were in the car, I put on some classical music for him while we were driving.  We were talking about classical music.  He wanted to know who made up different songs and of course, the conversations went right to “Carol of the Bells” since it’s his favorite song.  He loves the Mannheim Steamroller version especially.  Someone must have told him the name of the group and tonight he proclaimed:

“Yes, and I love that music from Einstein Steamroller!”

Again, cracking up and he had no idea why.  Somehow, all things classical must be associated with the Little Einsteins.

Did your kids recently let any funny ones fly?
