So hilarious! Baby has extreme reaction to nursery rhyme
So hilarious. I have no idea why he hates this song. from Shasta Kearns Moore on Vimeo.
I finally found a box full of my old children's books in my in-law's garage a few weeks ago. One of them was "Ten in a Bed." My husband and I started reading and singing the song and around "there were eight in a bed" we realized that Malachi was really upset. We had never sung together, so he tried singing alone. Nope. Then I tried. Nope.
Eventually we just had to read the book in a monotone to get through it.
The next morning at breakfast, I quietly sang "roll over, roll over," to see how Malachi would react. At first I thought he wouldn't do anything, but sure enough after a second of silence he looked at me with those big doughy eyes and stuck out his bottom lip.
I vowed I wouldn't sing it again, but I just had to catch his reaction on video. Too funny!
I can't imagine why he hates this song. This might be over-analyzing it, but part of me wonders if it's because of the words "roll over" and the fact that he can't, despite our daily encouragements....
In any event, he seriously hates it, so we'll have to stop singing it around him. (Even when I played back this video around him he got sad again.)
Now, if we can only keep that darned song from getting stuck in our heads!
