Preston, The Singer

Lately Preston has kept us all smiling with his wonderful singing abilities. He just started singing one day and hasn’t stopped. It started with (of course) Superman and Spiderman songs. For the Superman song, he sings, “Da, da, da, da, da. Da-Da-Da”. The funniest part is that it actually somewhat sounds like the Superman song. For the Spiderman song, he actually sings, “Spiderman, Spiderman, Spiderman” and then yells, “Spiderman Song!”

Now that he has been doing this for a couple of weeks, Kaden has taken it upon himself to broaden Preston’s song range. He continues to work with him on singing the “Sunbeam Song”, so he calls it. He also sings the “Clean Up” song with him as much as possible.

This morning, Kaden was getting ready for school and Preston, out of the blue, started singing the clean up song, “Clean up, share. Clean up, share.” If you will remember, the song goes, “Everybody do there share.” Kaden started complaining, “It isn’t time to clean up, silly.” But that didn’t stop our little singer. He just kept singing.

So in an attempt to get Preston to change songs, Kaden started to sing the “Sunbeam Song.” Before I knew it, there were 2 kids singing as loud as they could, “SunBEAM.” Preston came in shortly and would crouch down and say, “SunBEAM” jumping up whenever he said “BEAM”.

For the rest of the morning, this little 2-year old would run around the house chanting (not singing anymore) “sunbeam, sunbeam, sunbeam.” He even started ‘hammering’ his hand while he did it. He looked like a little, miniature, white, Indian while he chanted. Kaden was just excited that he was able to get Preston to change songs. :)

What they won’t come up with next.
