Song Confussion

When you have toddlers they want you to sing or tell stories all day long. That is fine if you have one or two but when you have six toddlers during the day you can really get tired of telling the same story 20 times in a day or singing the same song 20 times.

Yesterday I found out that some of the words to the songs that we sing are not the right words, let me explain. We were singing "This little light of mine." Great song and there are hand movements to it which makes it even better. For some reason one of the time that I sang it I had to stop in the middle and tell Esther to stop hitting Elijah so Joshua was singing the song with me and inverted what he heard that day. The song went something like this:

This little light of mine
I'm gonna to let it shine.
This little light of mine
I'm gonna to let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Won't let Satan blow it out.
I'm going to let it shine
Esther stop hitting Elijah
Won't let Satan blow it out
I'm going to let it shine, let it shine, let is shine, let it shine.

I had to laugh and try to explain that was not part of the song and that I was sorry that I messed the song up. I have to love it when my "safari" lets me know when I have done something that is not part of the story/song.

That story is so cute. I wish I had been there to hear that version. Too bad you did not have the video camera. I love your children and they are so fresh and cute. Tell them Nanna loves them so very much.
