Sooo, a couple of the new songs I came up with this summer were God Bless America and Take Me Out to the Ballgame. Those were big hits and still are for the most part. Then Terrell came up with the Pledge of Allegiance (which isn't even a song, just something Terrell thought of when he couldn't think of anything else!) and The Star Spangled Banner. Those two became even bigger hits. Oh dear.
Now my child can officially sing God Bless America all by himself, the Star Spangled Banner (with about 75% accuracy even though he butchers lots of those big words), and he can recite the Pledge of Allegiance with almost 100% accuracy. It's crazy! His version of the Pledge of Alliegiance is: I pledge allegiance to the flag, United States Merica, one nation, unner God, indivisle, with litty and jusiss for all. He's only missing the line "And to the republic for which it stands". Whenever he requests one of these now, he sings every line with us or asks to sing it all by himself. It is so funny hearing our 2 year old sing these very patriotic, adult songs and occasionally bust out with the Pledge of Allegiance. Today at natptime before he fell asleep I could hear him singing our National Anthem quite loudly from his bed. It just made me shake my head and smile. When I really think about it, I'm amazed at his memory... and I do feel like the proud mom. Now I'm just hoping and praying that memory makes for good test taking and study skills in the future. =)
