For about a month, Audrey has requested the "Potato Song", or so I thought.
Let me back up a bit.
I would ask her if she would sing me
a song and this would be her response, "Potato Song?"
"Yeah, okay, the Potato Song," I'd say. Yet, she would never sing it.
Several times after I'd ask her to sing a song, she'd just repeat "Potato Song" over and over again. I was beginning to think that she learned the "Potato Song" at school. I would say, "I'm sorry honey. I don't know the Potato Song."
I kept meaning to ask her teachers, but I would forget.
I kept meaning to google the "Potato Song", but never did.
Never in my life had I heard of this "Potato Song".
Tonight, as I was rocking her to sleep, I sang to her. I always do.
I usually start with "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star". I then move on to "Five Little Monkeys". Next I do "On Top of Spaghetti" and usually end with "I've Been Working on the Railroad".
Tonight, however, after I sang "On Top of Spaghetti", Audrey requested the "Potato Song". She kept repeating it:
"Honey, I'm sorry. Momma doesn't know the Potato Song." And then it hit me. She was trying to say "Spaghetti Song" and was getting potato
It was the hardest thing for me to do, sing the "Spaghetti Song" while trying not to laugh. I kept saying potato
in my head to try to get it to sound remotely like spaghetti
I am going to try to get this on audio so you can understand exactly
how funny this is.
Anyway, because I felt so guilty for not granting any of her past requests, I sang the "Spaghetti Song" as many times as she wished tonight. I wasn't counting, but it was more than 10 times....for sure.
I am almost certain it is her most favorite song.
