Mistaken Song Lyrics By My Son

On the drive in this morning to the sitter's / work - I was listening to Madonna, Beautiful Stranger, from the Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me soundtrack.

The lyrics - You're the devil in disguise, that's why I'm singing this song to you.

He pipes up in the back seat and says "Mommy, the devil is not in the sky! Those are ducks!"

At first I'm like, really? Then it sank in what he was talking about.

I wanted to laugh until I cried it was that funny.

Innocence is grand.

I hope he continues to amuse and amaze me for some time to come. Even with mistaken song lyrics.

Isn't it such a wonderful thing.... a child's mind! They come up with some wonderfully innocent, yet quite creative things some times! And ya can't help but wonder, "When did I lose that?"
Bless their little hearts!

Exactly!
To be able to look at the world with wonder and awe again - instead of the adult view - would be great.

You never want them to lose that but they do as they get older and more jaded because of their experiences.

But I want to capture them in this moment, right now, and never let them out. Yet I cannot stop them from growing up.

Thinking about it, kinda makes me tear up and sniffle, because now - NOW - I know exactly what my mom was talking about.

And you know what? I have only two right now, but I want another one. And I told the fiance that if the baby is a boy, I'm done and he's fixed. The fiance not the baby. (laughs)

The quote "Baby's are a nice way to start people" - it sticks in my mind because it is so true.

And right now, the adult world is pretty weird to our little ones and they want to figure it out but cannot - so I hope to continue to post cute goings on by them - so that I have it preserved somewhere other than my mind.
