Update: Gathering His Chicks

Update: Gathering His  Chicks : H/T Lizard Queen for an updated version of the Little Ducks song (Now Elmo’s Ducks and lyrics)

Elmo had four ducks (quack quack quack quack)
four birds of a feather (quack quack quack quack)
to waddle with (quack quack quack quack)
and quack together. (quack quack quack quack)
But then one day… one swam away
Oh gosh oh gee… Elmo just had three.

Elmo had three ducks (quack quack quack)
three birds of a feather (quack quack quack)
to waddle with (quack quack quack)
and quack together (quack quack quack)
But then one day… one went achoo!
And off he flew… so Elmo just had two.

Elmo had two ducks (quack quack)
two birds of a feather (quack quack)
to waddle with (quack quack)
and quack together. (quack quack)
But then one day… one had to run
to get some sun… then Elmo just had one.

Elmo had one duck (quack)
one bird of a feather (quack)
to waddle with (quack)
and quack together. (quack)
But then one day…  it spun and spun
and got so dizzy… Elmo now had none.

Elmo had no ducks… not even a feather
to waddle with… and quack together.
But then one day… Elmo heard a QUACK!
Oh gosh oh gee… Elmo’s ducks came back!

This past Sunday, while Daniel was playing in the cool park not too far away from the house, a little boy wanted to go down this climbing/slide thingy while Daniel was trying to go up it — at the same time.  The little boy asked, “Can I go down?” His father, expecting Daniel to say no or something worse, was about to tell his son to just wait.  Imagine his surprise when my 2.5 year old said, “Yes,” and stepped aside for the little boy to get down.I just wanted to jump up and down, squealing with joy: he’s turning out to be a pretty good kid, this little guy of mine. Maybe — just maybe — I do know the difference between my ass and a hole in the ground, when it comes to this “motherhood” thing.  :-)
