Chitty Chitty Bang Bang...

you may not know, but at our house we have a little boy who is quite obsessive about things when he really likes them. For example, after he watched 101 Dalmations, ALL (and i mean, literally ALL) he talked about was Horace and Jasper and the dalmation puppies. he wanted to play that, be that, talk about that, read that, watch that etc. you get the idea. when he discovered Cars, same deal, then he got cars silverware, plate, bowl, cup etc. we are feeding a monster! so the newest fixation and fad at our house is Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

he knows all the songs, he can sing you "chitty chitty bang bang" "me 'ol bamboo" "doll on a music box" "toot sweets" and "truly scrumptious" among others. he doesn't like the pirate parts so we skip those parts and he'll tell you when he's getting scared, which is good. also i don't like the child-stealing guy, he's a little creepy

so i skip that part...and i skip the "chu chi face" song, because, i don't know how recently you've seen this movie but that lady doesn't wear many clothes during that part...

anyway, so ethan has been telling me he wants to be "a bamboo" as he calls them, the guys that sing "me 'ol bamboo" song, for halloween.

he even does a really cute and funny dance when this song comes on...but no one will know who he is...so i think maybe i'll make him a costume he can put on at home and for halloween we can do something as a family.

he even uses his toy broom as his "bamboo stick"

cute kid.

That is so funny! He showed me his dance today and it cracked me up. Let him be it for halloween! You can tease him about it for years to come!

That is so cute! I couldn't remember for the life of me what the scary candy guy says and the second I asked Jake it totally remembered and replied with our often quoted line, "lollipops". Ahh, makes me laugh. I used to be really creeped out by that guy, even when I was older. I would love to see pics of him in that costume!
