Music to my ears

Ethan has listened to music as part of his evening routine since babyhood. At some point, his music of choice became the cassette tape of the Toy Story soundtrack which he must have listened to every night for at least a year. This ritual stopped for a while when Drew started sharing a room with him but recently he has taken it up again in earnest.

I'm not sure what it is about these songs but he just loves listening to them and "singing" along. (And believe me, those are not misplaced quotation marks) Occasionally, I even find him sitting on his top bunk in the middle of the day playing this tape.

Keith, the techno-sneak, decided to see what we could catch on tape the other night, whether it be Ethan's singing or his interesting conversations with Drew. He rigged up a hidden camera in Ethan's closet and, after some editing, this is what we got.

I laughed myself silly but I realize it may not be that funny to the rest of the world. It's a fairly long clip but hang in there for the last song which I think is the best of all. I have no idea what words he's "singing" much of the time.

I love it. Our poor kids generation... why whip out the photo album in front of first dates when we can show them video clips of them singing to the Toy Story sound track in the top bunk!

Priceless.

I am glad Keith isn't my dad.

Except the Spiderman stunt was good.

Happy almost New Year!

Love the twang! "You've got a fray-end in me." Precious. And hysterical.

Keith, you are OSSIM! That was fantabulous! I hope Ethan won't be too embarrassed someday...it's just TOO charming. Reminds me of the tapes we made as kids - except WE made them ourselves, not Mama and Daddy...okay, maybe the "my boon" one...but still...

What a cutie! That was so great! I love how he "sings" with a practical, no-nonsense manner :)

Keith you are the coolest with your wicked sweet spy gadgets. Grant is envious. He's watched the video SEVERAL times...his only complaint was "the parts where I couldn't hear Effan singing and it was going too fast".
