I'm pretty sure that's not the way I learned it

Max: "Mom, what comes after Cuban?"
Me: "What do you mean, what comes after Cuban?"
Max: "Like in the Christmas song that I'm learning at school."
Me: ???????
Max: (exasperated) "You know it! It's the one that goes you know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cuban and ................ what comes after Cuban?"
Me: "Donner?"
Max: "OK. Then which one comes after Cheatin'?
( I have no idea which one he was talking about there. I pretty much gave up after that)

Later I hear him singing
"Rudoff the red nosed reindeer, has a very shiny nose, and if you ever saw it, you would even see his clothes."

Oh man, he's cute. And very funny and silly. Not always (or ever?) on purpose! :)

I'm glad that this will now be the song stuck in my head today, rather than Britney Spears' song about a threesome. Why do they play that song at the mall?

I love Max :) Those really are better lyrics.

Oh my, now I can't stop giggling.

Carrot Jello said...

Also known as big fat cheater pants when he plays reindeer games.
When the other reindeer call HIM names, they call him cheatin'.
Just the facts ma'am.
Just the facts.

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.
Carry on.

I think the lyrics should be changed to Max's version. I think I like them better!

I just laughed out loud for the first time today, and it felt really good. :)

Admit it - you make this stuff up just to tickle us, right? ROFL! I'm just kidding! NOBODY could make up that much good material. LOL!

I love kids and their fantastic ideas =) My sister told my son (the Energizer Bunny-he's 2) she bought him a present (she lives in CA, we live in MI) and he told her the presents are in the office, and proceeded to look for them. (We've decided he must think this because when he helped Daddy (the Unsupportive Louse) wrap my presents, they did it in the office...)
