What is Dinah Doing?

You know how you can get song lyrics wrong?  You know how funny it is when someone else does it?  Take my younger son, who insisted that this little ditty was the “correct” set of lyrics to a section of the kiddy classic “I’ve Been Working On The Railroad”… 

“I’ve been workin on a railroad, all the livin day!

I’ve been workin on a railroad, jus a bass a dime away!

Can ya hear a wiffle owin, aye uh a eary ih a born!

um a uh uh uh uh uh dah, Dinah bow ya born!

Dinah Warsh and Blow,

Dinah Warsh and Blow,

Di – nah Warsh and Blo – o – ow!”

Rather than working on the railroad, I think Dinah opened the west’s first Cut’n’Curl Beauty Salon… but that is a whole other post.  Peace to all out there!

Church Musings

My younger son is so verbal.

Sometimes we wonder why we ever taught him to speak (and then – why he speaks so LOUDLY). 

During the sermon while in church he pipes up with important questions like – “Mommy, why do your boobs hang out your chest?” and “Why is Pastor so old?”

As we walk up for communion/blessings he’ll ask “Why do you get snacks and I don’t?” and, with wide eyes, referring to the communion wine, “Is that real BLOOD in there?”

Our favorite was when, during the sermon he called up to the pastor… “Are you done talking yet?”
