Before we had kids we promised ourselves that we would not stop listening to the music we like and load the car up with Elmo and Disney songs. So far, we have succeeded. Now this doesn't mean that we don't turn the radio off and belt out a couple verses of Old MacDonald but it's my personal opinion that my singing is much less annoying than Elmo's. Anyhoo, on to our story.
While driving in the perfect fall day yesterday we were listening to one of our favorite mixes which includes Tom Waits Tom Traubert's Blues. Jake and I both love this song and were just listening and looking at the leaves. Sophie announces, "Cookie monster is singing!". It absolutely cracked me up. Now, if you haven't ever listened to Tom Waits sing, just imagine Cookie Monster singing something other than a nursery rhyme and you've got it.
