Remember how I recently admitted that Jake frequently falls asleep in the family room with his clothes on. Well tonight this is how he fell asleep in the chair, cuddling his latest obsession schoolhouse rock! A great friend who is aware of this obsession just bought Jake three schoolhouse rock videos that she found at a yard sale. He was so excited. Madi will be performing in schoolhouse rock in two weeks so we have the play CD, we currently have the DVD out of the library, and we own the grammar rock video, but now he has multiplication rock, science rock and America rock!! Some kids are into swords or star wars or sports...Jake loves signing and dancing. First it was Barney and Blues Clues, then the Wiggles, then Laurie Berkner, then Veggie Tales...now he's all about schoolhouse rock. In the car today he wanted to play guess what schoolhouse rock song I'm thinking of. He'll also say things like "this house is a noun", and I don't know many five year old boys who regularly talk about "the preamble". He's unique!
As a side note, even though he fell asleep downstairs, I did carry him up to his bed. He had already gone to the bathroom and I even helped him brush his teeth. He was still wearing his clothes, but he had taken a bath at about 3:30 this afternoon and I had him wear sweat pants because I was pretty sure he'd be sleeping in those clothes. (I left the video downstairs)
