One day Kellan asked to listen to one of his favorite songs, "Martha My Dear," by The Beatles. When the next song on the album came on Kellan said, "He's going to sing pickle pie." Lately Kellan has been singing the words "pickle pie" and we figured it was just something silly he liked to say. Kind of like his own nonsensical anthem. Then I found out where it came from.
The song "I'm So Tired" has a line "I'd give you everything I've got for a little piece of mind." Except to Kellan John Lennon is singing "for a pickle pie." I think I laughed for five minutes straight.
It was a reminder to me as a parent that kids are paying attention whether you realize it or not. They may not get all the details correct, but they are definitely absorbing everything. I will be sure to keep some of my favorite Cee-Lo song off my Kellan playlist!
Does your preschooler have a favorite song?
