Come they told me, pa rum pum pum pum! You know that came to mind when you saw the title, don't deny it :-)! As I mentioned in yesterday's post, Evan is a blossoming drumming machine! Ever since he heard the Praise Band play at church, he has been none stop - and that was over a year. My parents then bought him a drum set either for Christmas or his birthday. Then it happened, the moment that will probably one day be the story he tells people why he became a famous drummer.
Okay fine, I was being a little dramatic! He probably won't even remember this moment (ha ha when he is a famous drummer). But we were at church for a special service. Our praise team was recording a worship CD and instead of hiring a baby sitter, I brought the boys along since Evan loves music and Carter was nursing at the time (I know TMI). Several friends of mine were making bets on how long the kids would last before we had to leave (cough cough Jenny and Bobby). Surprising to every one but me (because after all I know my kids so well - could you hear the sarcasm) they wanted to stay the whole time - Evan especially. And that is when it happened. He heard THE song. The song that I have had to sing at least one time every day. The song that has to be played in the truck! The song that he sings non stop - since the first time almost 6 months ago. The song that when he knows Ben is doing worship, he asks to sit in on the service (that is because the second time he heard it at church, it was Ben's week, so apparently the song is only played when Ben is doing worship :-)). I AM NOT joking! He literally has not stopped singing it since the first time he heard it!
The song, you are asking? Tim Hughes' Happy Day
Now, I love this song! Is there a better song that you would want your child to sing over and over and over and over... you get my drift. But hey, being a mom, I go with it and appease my budding worship leader!
Well, he insists to play the drums, while daddy plays the guitar (cough Jeremy doesn't know how to play the guitar) and mommy sings "Happy Day". Carter just dances! Can you tell that Evan is a first born? Everything has to be exactly right!
Well, now there is a new twist to the story. When I returned home on Sunday from the Hearts at Home Conference with my new 3 CDs of The Go Fish Guys, Evan realized that there is a song on the Snazzy CD called "Hit the Drum" (track 10). Because of this song, he INSISTED we move his drum set from down in the basement where I could throw him when I didn't want to hear the drums to in his room. RIGHT! So what did I do? You guessed it, I had Jeremy go get Evan's drum set and now it is in his room next to his CD player where I can turn on track 10 and he can "jam" to it!
"Mommy, put on the gum (drum in Evan speak) song, so I can play my gums!"
So thanks Go Fish Guys, now I get to hear the drums, ALL.DAY.LONG!! Poor Carter, will be deaf by the age of 2!
