Last night when I was tucking Lukas into bed he requested a song.
Lukas: Mom, will you sing the monkey and bird song?
Me: The monkey and bird song? What is that?
Lukas: Mom, the monkey and bird song! You know.
I had no idea what he was talking about. So, I made up an elaborate song about Lukas, a monkey and a bird swinging through the jungle. I was so proud of my song. In spite of the fact Adam was in the corner cracking up at my musical endeavor. After I was done Lukas looked at me.
Lukas: No mom! you know the monkey and bird you're going to buy me.
(insert light bulb here)
Me: Oh.... You mean -Momma's going to buy you a mockingbird?!"
