Hum

The Oldest is always humming incessantly. My daughter had to read a few words for her phonics lesson last week and one of the words was "hum". With each word she pronounced, I made her think of an example and tell me what she thought of. For "hum" she thought of her oldest brother humming all the time.

Sometimes getting on my Oldest son's nerves is the little chuckle of my life. If I can get him to laugh at himself (because he takes himself so seriously) it is even better. While doing his math this morning I started to violently hum like he does so often around the house. I, of course, added a little more pep into it to make it noticeable. He sat there with the Expo pen in hand, brows furrowed, and gave me a "are you for real?" look.

"What are you doing, mom?"

"Just humming. It sounds GREAT. It sounds just like yours."

"No, it doesn't." He slammed the pen down at the injustice.

"And why not?"

"Mine sounds so much better if you heard the whole of it."

"What is that supposed to mean?"

"I have other music that goes to it that you can't hear. I am humming to it. I have a little jukebox in my mind."

I wish I could hear his little jukebox. It probably sounds pretty good in there.

In the corner of my mind stands a jukebox...
It's playing all my favorite memories...

Okay, I have the music in my head all the time too! LOVE the boy! *Grin*

Yeah, he cracks me up. I don't have music continually in my mind---in fact, it would drive me nuts after awhile, but when making music myself I do have all the orchestration in my head, so I can understand the lad.

Now that is a great reply! I'm impressed.

He also informs me that he is a genius too on an occassional basis.
