Little Pigs say…

“James, what does a cow say?”

“Mooo,” says James.

“What does a sheep say?”

“Baaaa.” Of course his baa is accompanied with a head shake.

“And, what do pigs say?”

“La,la la!”

At which Paul and I dissolve into laughter. We’ve read him Sandra Boynton’s book, “Moo, Baa, La La La“, one two many times (we have two copies – one older from when Liz was born and one newer from James – since they look different, James insists we read both) and no matter how we try to convince him that pigs really do say oink, and we even accompany the oinking with exuberant snorting, he is certain that pigs say “la la la!” in a cute head bobbing sing-song. Oh, Sandra, what have you done to my child? 😀

Not to worry, I am sure that Robert will follow in his big brother’s footsteps, since that is a family favorite book and we’re okay with singing pigs.

  1. Ha ha, I love it. 🙂 I used to read that book all the time and is one of those I read so much I had it memorized. So much fun. I love Sandra Boynton.

  2. Heather

    Daniel used to love that book. At the end he would always say, “mooooooooo.”

  3. Awesome! We can relate, we have a book I about a lazy ladybug that doesn’t want to fly and long story short, at the very end the elephant sneezes and so anytime someone asks my kids what an elephant says, they say “achoo!”

  4. My grandkids loved that book so much i actually made up a song to it, and when they moved to Texas I would sing it to them over the phone. Makes me sad just thinking about it!
