Uncle Bob

The kids are loving music at the moment to the point where they will sit in the car and sing songs in the driveway. We were driving around and Glen's Bob Marley CD came on to give Justine Clarke a rest. "Who is that" asked Caleb. "That's your Uncle Bob" Glen told him. Glen and I are both only children so Caleb was super excited at the thought of having an Uncle. The next day Caleb said to me - My Uncle Bob sleeps in trees and eats grass. So funny because perhaps a little bit true.

Oh I love that. Uncle Bob rocks and I love this tale. I love how children have this sense of breaking it down and coming up with something so spot on...xxx

Oh dear, kids say the funniest things! I'm pretty sure Uncle Bob ate a fair bit of grass in his time and even slept in a tree or two :)

*snork* Kids can be pretty darn perceptive, huh? lol

The White Stripes have some pretty good songs that gets the kids moving. Try Hotel Yorba, or We Are Going To Be Friends. Okay, that last one isn't necessarily one for moving, but it's SWEET! :p

LOL!

The great thing about Bob Marley though is that EVERYONE can appreciate him...well, mostly everyone.lol

I know other little children who went through an Uncle Bob stage too. There must be something about his reggae beats that kids naturally resonate with!

hehehhe, makes me giggle thinking about kids in tie-dyed berets bobbing around, teehee.
