Rudolph Today!

It’s time to get to go see our Christmas Play! We loved going to see Frosty last year, and this yer it’s Rudolph yaay! I must confess, that I am more than excited about the prospect of just actually knowing all the WORDS to Rudolph… I am still trying to figure out all the words to Frosty. Why is that song so hard to memorize anyway?

Now for the great debate… when teaching the daughter to sing Rudolph… do we use the “like monopoly” echoes? Or do we teach it to her the right way? I know, crazy, right? I mean… I personally prefer the song with echoes, but it would be wrong to teach it incorrectly, right? 🙂

Anyway, Rudolph should be a lot of fun tonight! I hope they make it snow in the theater again this year like they did last year.!

Oh, and for those of you now saying to yourselves just what ARE the words to that silly Frosty song again…

Frosty The Snowman

Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul,
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal.
Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say,
He was made of snow but the children
Know how he came to life one day.
There must have been some magic in that
Old silk hat they found.
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around.
O, Frosty the snowman
Was alive as he could be,
And the children say he could laugh
And play just the same as you and me.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Look at Frosty go.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Over the hills of snow.

Frosty the snowman knew
The sun was hot that day,
So he said, “Let’s run and
We’ll have some fun
Now before I melt away.”
Down to the village,
With a broomstick in his hand,
Running here and there all
Around the square saying,
Catch me if you can.
He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop.
And he only paused a moment when
He heard him holler “Stop!”
For Frosty the snow man
Had to hurry on his way,
But he waved goodbye saying,
“Don’t you cry,
I’ll be back again some day.”
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Look at Frosty go.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Over the hills of snow.

depends on what impression you want to put on your impressionable child...

if you teach the right way, she'll learn the extras at school, thus reinforcing the segregation. mommy is right, and school is fun. though she will rebel against you, she will come to you in times of need.

if you teach her the other way, you'll be the cool mom that she can relate to. there will be less rebellion but she'll find other, more librarian-like people to look to.

see why i don't want to have kids?
