That's right. Grayden has become a fan of the Commodores.
A few weeks ago Park and Reid were singing 'Brick House' on repeat for several days. (Gray's not the only one who likes a little soul music.) And one time, we heard the two of them... "She's a brick..." (pause) followed up by Gray..."House." We laughed our heads off, but thought it might be a fluke. Maybe it just sounded like he was saying house. Baby's sometime talk gibberish that sounds like real words. Not the case this time. It's a nice little call and response. Every time we say 'she's a brick', he follows up with 'house.' Clear as day.
Today on the way to take Park to school, the oldest two crazies were singin' it with Gray and he joined in on the 'a brick' part, too. My baby sings soul. I've tried to get it on camera, but he won't perform any tricks on video. He's all about a live show.
I find it so funny. Up until this point, he just said the usual 12 month old baby babble. Boo, woof woof, mamamama, dadadadada, a-choo, uh-oh, probably a few more things I'm forgetting. And all sorts of other nonsense baby gibberish. 'House' was definitely a surprise and 'a brick' even more so.
My kids are so cool. Can we say future rock stars? Watch out Hanson. Move over Jonas Brothers. My kids have SOUL. (Or maybe I'm looking at this all wrong and they just want to be architects... Gray says, "a brick house.")
Upon further reflection, I've realized 'Brick House' may not be the best children's music. But I'd still take it over Barney any day.
