Alternative Transport

DS2 has a book he reads in the bath about a teddy who has three bath toys - duck, whale and turtle. DS1 was very proud last night because, in addition to DS2's usual 'duck', he taught him to say 'turtle' and then 'whale'. However, he was less than impressed when DS2 having said 'whale' a few times, obviously searched through the database in his head - which almost entirely consists of songs - to find where he had heard this word before. Having clearly located it, he very confidently started singing the well known tune:

 'The Whales on the Bus, go round and round, round and round, round and round'.

Altogether now....


  1. Cute!

    My DS is 22 months old and loves Humpty Dumpty and Goosey Goosey Gander.... When he hears me (or anyone else) sing them he hurls himself back at alarming speed as in the rhymes Humpty falls off a wall and the old man is chucked down the stairs by a goose!

    Who ever invented these songs need a stern talking to!


  2. Absolutely! DS2 has fortunately not got into Humpty Dumpty yet - wouldn't go well with his habit of sitting half way up the stairs! Don't know Goosey Goosey Gander - will have to look it up - or maybe its safer not to... ;-)
