No, not the kind you eat. The kind you blow on your kids’ tummies. We had a raspberry “Name That Tune” tournament this morning.
Sophie successfully guessed that Chloe was belting out the “ABC” song on her belly. She also figured out that I was doing a special version of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” on her stomach. I thought did a pretty good job with “Jingle Bells” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” but I stumped them on those two songs – wrong season, I guess.
In effort to raise the sophistication level a notch, I attempted my own version of “It’s a Mad World” as sung by Adam Lambert, to no avail. Although when I announced what it was, Chloe slapped herself on the forehead in belated recognition. Probably just wanted to make me feel better.
I’m thinking of honing my raspberrying skills in order to try out for next season’s “America’s Got Talent.” The girls can join me in a trio.
