Non-Christmas related post here…
Yesterday, when I went to pick up Mary from preschool, her PreK teachers had to share with me the funny thing she did on Wednesday afternoon.
Apparently, the class was doing a review of numbers, 1-30. Each child picked two number flash cards. The object of the lesson was 1:1 correspondence and so each child was give a few minutes to come up with a hand or body action that represented their chosen number.
Well, having number 1, Mary had to go first with no prior examples to work from. Never fear, theatrical queen is here!
Without skipping a beat, Mary Catherine stood up and said, “I’d like to sing one (1) song for you.” The next thing the teachers know, Mary is breaking out into song with “All the Single Ladies” in her best Chipmunk voice! At times she would mumble through words, but then when she got to the refrain, she would belt it out including those “uh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh, oh, oh…” Apparently, the hand motion (showing the missing ring) was included!
Now before you scream “bad parent”, Mary has never seen VH1 or MTV and has no idea who Beyonce is. This was purely from the Chipmunk Movie, The Squeakuel! AND, the entire PreK class joined her in song…I guess that was a popular movie over Christmas break! Okay, and MAYBE, I’ve been known to belt out a few Top 40 hits a time or two with my little ones in the car!!!
