Really? You know the words already?

So Nancy is totally into VeggieTales. I don't mind at all, I think it is a fun and creative show to watch. I love the spin offs and the silly songs. I must confess I was into veggietales when they first came out. I was singing with Larry at the top of my lungs "oh where is my hairbrush?" while driving in my car on the way to a youth meeting that I lead. My husband on the other hand could careless for them. In fact when we were dating and engaged he told me numerous times that he did not want his kids watching veggietales. I blew it off, that he just didn't understand the humor of it, and the fact that it is appealing with the music and humor.

Well we have watched Jonah I can't even tell you how many times, and we have a couple other different ones that she watches. I still have yet to see "Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" but I digress. I have CD's that I have loaded onto my Ipod so when we are driving we listen to veggietale tunes and we all sing along and she will request again or ask for a specific song.

Well Nancy woke up not feeling good at all today and so we have been watching veggietales and relaxing. Well this evening she was starting to feel better and asked for another veggietale movie. I said "ok" put one on and then started in amazement as I listened to her quote the intro to the begining song. She didn't say it right with them but she knew the words and when they were coming. This is the whole scene where Larry is not sure what to play for the intro song.... yeah.

She has come in singing different parts of songs that just crack me up. One morning I was changing Ron and Nancy came running into his room yelling at the top of her lungs "I Am That Hero" "Larryboy" I just bursted out laughing. Another time she came up to the counter of the Auntie Anne's Pretzels and sang at the top of her lungs "Broccoli...Celery" My friend who works there just bursted out laughing.

She is picking up music really quick and I think that it is really fun to see loves in children that are not forced. I don't know if she will have any "real" musical talent and who really cares, but the fact that she loves to sing and has fun doing it is all I care about at this time.

For now we will just continue singing in the car "Oh Where is my hairbrush....." If you listen close you will probably hear us coming! :)


  1. How cute! My kids did the same thing with Veggitales, The Donut Man, Hard hat Harry (no songs), Lean On Me (song).

    These are such adorable times. I hope you make movies of it. You'll enjopy watching them for years to come. We still do.

    Try teaching her the Pledge when she's about 3. It's just precious to hear them say it in their own dialect.

    More later,

  2. Rhonda,

    I absolutely adore veggie tales! I love them probably more than my kids do! I know all those words and my favorite is the Cebu song!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  3. My kids are much older, so they did the same with Barney music (I hated the show, but the CD was fun)...
