Seriously, sorry about the crappy posts lately. Here's a recent Luke story to get back into the swing of things.
Last night Luke started singing a Charlie Waffles song. Anyone not familiar with Charlie Waffles from Two and a Half Men? It is Charlie Sheen's character's stage name for his set of children's songs. However, the children's songs are not something you want your kids singing in public or at school, or anywhere. Here's link to a clip from the show that has the song Luke is singing called "Bye Bye Boobies". You should definitely watch it now before finishing reading this post.
So, last night Luke starting singing "Bye Bye Boobies" to himself (he sings a lot). He started out, "I drink from a sippy cup, sippy cup, sippy cup / I drink from a sippy cup/ 'Cause I'm a big kid now"
Chuck held his breath waiting for the next line which for Charlie Waffles is, "Bye, bye boobies / Bye bye boobies / Bye bye boobies / 'Cause I'm a big kid now." As Luke started singing, Chuck started to cringe waiting for the word "boobies. " This is how Luke finished the song, "Bye, bye, bye-bye / Bye, Bye, bye-bye / Bye, Bye, bye-bye / 'Cause I'm a big kid now." Chuck stopped holding his breath and relaxed.
Chuck was telling me this story later and I wondered out loud, "Who taught him that? Do you think there's a kid at school who is singing these songs?" Seriously, what kind of parent would let their kid listen to these songs or, worse, teach their kids these songs, right? Well, apparently, that parent is Chuck because he looked at me with only a little regret (but mostly amusement) in his eyes and informed me that he had been watching the show the day before when he and the kids had gotten home. He tells me that he tried to change the channel as quickly as possible when the Charlie Waffles songs came on, but I have my doubts. I guess we can't unring that bell. I wouldn't have guessed that Luke would memorize the songs that quickly. Goes to show that Charlie Waffles really has some catchy tunes and lyrics. Some of the other songs include, "From Diaper to Wiper," "Don't Shake the Baby," "Mommy's Little Happy Pill," and "When Mommy & Daddy Wrestle."
