More Chitty Chitty

Whenever Saben is really focused on something like legos or drawing, he hums "chitty chitty bang bang" non-stop. NON-STOP. Over and over. For hours on end. Really - hours. I am dead serious and not exagerating.

If you think this occaisionally drives me batty, you are incorrect. It drives me always batty and I always find it running through my head even when he's not around. I shudder when i realize I am humming it to myself while weeding out in the yard. But how can you tell your son to quit humming happily while he plays? The only remedy I've discovered is turning on some music. Except then I get busy and we listen to the same CD 4-5 times in a row and that drives me batty too.

For the record, if I had a rapper name, I would want it to be "Chitty Chitty".

Maybe it's a boy thing they have to do to focus and concentrate? Luke does it, too, NONSTOP. But not all the same song. But it is especially when he's drawing/crafting?

Here's to our sanity!

Oh how I love your posts! I played some 80's Michael Jackson for Sydney yesterday, maybe you should widen his exposure? Sydney only sings the abc's or songs from The Sound of Music. over and over. I get crazy at those and can't imagine what the chitty chitty bang bang soundtrack must do to you!
