Something Different

I was feeling a little unsure about exactly how and when to talk about anything besides Missy on here.  I know I will talk about her lots over the months and years to come, but clearly at some point I will also start to talk about other things along side my heartbreak.  I knew someday it would feel okay to change the subject, but I wasn't sure when that would be, or even how to start an 'old normal' post.  Then, the other day, while I was loading the dishwasher, I heard Henry singing while he was playing in the living room.  I walked in to listen closer, just to be sure I heard him correctly. And yep. It was what I thought.
"Who let the dogs out? WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WHO LETS THE DOGS OUT!"** But you all, it wasn't to the right tune at all.  Like, I know you are thinking it sounded like this.  When in reality it was to the tune of like, a nursery rhyme, or maybe just to the tune of nothing at all.  Completely to his own little random beat.

 So I thought I would maybe, someday, post about it.  But I wanted you to hear his version.  So this weekend I asked him to sing it so I could video him. And instead of his own personal non-musical beat, I got this version of "Who Let the Dog's Out"

And you guys, this tickles me so much.  Like, deep down in my heart.  His monotone singing of who let the dogs out... the way he almost looks board. "Who? Who? Who?" *giant sigh*

I could watch it a million times and it would never stop being funny.  And I know Missy would have loved it.  So it seemed right to go ahead and post it.  Because we are here, still moving forward.  And somethings, things are really funny (at least funny to me... this might not be funny to anybody else.  I totally see that)  and laughing is good.
He's so hard core...

** I feel the need to add here that I seriously have NO IDEA how he knows the words to 'Who Let the Dog's Out'.  (WHO?? WHO? WHO?) .  I guess they dance to it at daycare?  I guess??  I just felt the need to mention that this isn't a song we commonly have on in the background at our house... you know... in case you were curious.


  1. I love it!

    My daughter sings Gangnam Style. I am not proud.

  2. Such a stud. It's good to laugh, especially when children are there to help remind us to laugh. :)

  3. Missy would have LOVED that video. The monotone "who" is the best! xoxo

  4. Oh my gosh, Henry is so darn cute! Look at that posing!

    When I was watching this, Oscar came running over to see what was going on and he found it HILARIOUS!! Must be a boy thing ;) xx
