Tall Man???

The other day we were at Jack's playgroup. (Which, if I haven't already whined to you about this in person, has been canceled for the rest of the school year. I don't know what we're going to do. It was our morning outing at least one or two days a week. Our Parents as Teachers is severely understaffed, so they had to stop the group. I'm so sad. Jack loved it- he would just run & play & jabber with the other kids.) Anyway, at the end of the group they sing songs. Jack loves this. He bounces along with the singing, claps at the end of each song & then signs "more" so that we'll sing more songs.

The leader started singing "Where is Thumbkin". I didn't really remember this song. I certainly didn't expect her to go through all the fingers. I couldn't contain myself when she got to the middle finger & started singing "where is Tall Man?" while giving everyone the finger. I looked around thinking, surely I'm not the only one who thinks this is funny, right? But everyone was just singing along, giving each other the middle finger and helping their toddler do it too. I guess I need to brush up on my kid songs!

Have you thought about if your church would let you lead a playgroup? It may take volunteering yourself to "de-bug" the toys/room. It's a thought I've had, but haven't been that desperate.....yet! Otherwise, how 'bout you communte to Lawrence for playgroup? ;-)

That is so hilarious!! I couldn't help but to bust out laughing at the thought of cute little Jack giving the finger to all his little playmates! Ha!

Just had to tell you that we went to library time this morning and sang the same song....We waited in anticipation, but alas, the leader stopped with the pointer finger! M and I were giggling the whole time because of your story!
