Tootie Ta, Tootie Ta, Tootie Ta Ta
For some reason I remembered this song that Jack’s Kindergarten class used to sing. They performed it at their graduation. It was hilarious. I started singing it on the way home with Jack in the car.
Jack: Ugh, I hate that song!
me: You used to LOVE it! Remember?
Jack: I guess so…I’m too old to sing that now. (but after a few minutes he joins in and giggles along as he sings)
me: See? It’s so funny!
Jack: I miss Kindergarten…
me: Really? Awww.
Jack: Yeah, we used to do fun stuff and I miss my friends.
me: I know, that must be hard. Do you want to go back and visit again?
Jack: Yes! Can we?
me: Of course…I’ll let your teacher know we’re coming.
Jack: Remind her that I’m gonna be there for summer camp! I’m still going right?
Jack: Then I better let my teacher know that I won’t be in school this summer. I wonder what she’ll say to that!
me: Sweetie, your teacher goes home for the summer. There’s no school at all. Didn’t you know that?
Jack: Whaaaat? No school in the summer? I thought you were letting me leave to go to summer camp. Awwww…
me: Sorry. But either way you’ll have fun, so just think of that.
Jack: (I look back at him in the rear view mirror and see him shaking his head) I really need to know these things ahead of time Mom.
