Boom De Ah Da Boom de Ah Da.......I love the whole world...

The other day when I was picking up Koji at the daycare, one of the teachers came over to me to talk. Noting the look on her face~~~believe me, it's one I have seen hundreds of times~~I was bracing myself mentally for what it was that my little man had done that day that warranted a special talk with the teacher.

I must have had a "just give it to me quick and painless, please" look on my face because the teacher just laughed and said "Nan ni mo nai, yo...shitsumon dake." ("It's nothing, I just have a question.") Okaaaaaaayyy.......

She was wondering what the "boom di ah da" song was that Koji had been singing for the past few days. What? Hmmmm......thinking that it did sound familiar, I was searching in my sleep deprived brain for where it was that I had heard it and then.....A-HA!!! I remembered. (Thank God I did...I hate it when I can't remember something and then I have to go through the ABC's and then sometimes I end up going through the Japanese sounds list, too!!)

A while back, my friend MoxyJane posted a video on her blog. Koji was in the room with me when I played it and he and I both loved it!! We watched it a couple of times and, since the words are not too terribly difficult to sing, we were singing along with the video.
This was a few weeks ago, so why he would all of a sudden start to sing that song...now...is really kind of funny. But, even funnier is that at the daycare....his buddies are singing it, too...with Koji, when they are playing. I explained this to the teacher and she just laughed and then asked me to write the name down on a piece of paper so she could go and watch it later herself!!

Now....we sing this song a lot. It's really a great song. Koji has gotten pretty good about making up his own words...."I love a sunny day. I love Mommy. I love dangos. (meatballs!) I love Lego's..............Boom de ah da Boom de ah da......." and on and on it continues. It's great!!

The weather has gotten so that we don't need to use the air conditioner in the car so much and on the way home we have the windows down and we...are...singing....sometimes, pretty loudly.....and laughing. Our words get kind of silly...but that's okay...we are kind of silly. And that's okay, too.



So....here's wishing you a Boom de ah da kind of day!!!

What a cool commercial... I can see why it got stuck in your son's head. How cool is it that one song affected so many people?

Oh, I love how we're all connected. Thanks for the reminder!

That "ABC" thing? I totally do that.

Your wonderful Boom-de-ah-da song is the only thing I can play on the piano, you know.

That is such a fabulous video - I sing it to feel better, too.

In fact, I think it might need to be my class starter tomorrow. Mondays can be hard.
