On Top Of Spaghetti
So, we had spaghetti and meatballs for dinner last night, and we decided to sing "On Top of Spaghetti" for Evan. We would go through lyric by lyric and he kept asking questions like, "How did it fall of the table?", "Who sneezed?". We went through the song a couple of times like this.
Here is the conversation that followed the song:
Evan: "They don't have a meatball anymore?"
Us: "No, it rolled out the door and into the garden."
Evan began to look slightly concerned.
Evan: "Are they sad they don't have a meatball"?"
By the time he finished the question, his bottom lip was sticking out, and he was looking very concerned.
Us: "Yes, but it's just a song. It's pretend."
By this time, he had the lip going and we could see tears beginning to form in his eyes.
Evan: "Why? Why they don't have a meatball?"
It took a couple of minutes to calm him down and reassure him that no actual meatballs were lost and everyone was happy. Needless to say, we probably won't be singing that song again for a while!
