Old Macdonald, The Itsy Bitsy Spider (I asked him about show tunes because we have been listening to a Pandora station and he has been singing his little heart out. He chooses Chim Chimney and I ask him about Tomorrow).

A teenager. (He really does look forward to being a teenager. I did get him to say now that he will listen to me when he is a teenager . . . ).

“Playing with him . . . Tick-Tock, Tall Mater” (I asked him about this. He says that he and Papa play Tick-Tock, like the crocodile from Peter Pan, and that Tall Mater is playing cars). “I love Papa, and he can fly me like Peter Pan. I can fly! I can fly! I can fly!” (Andrew is really good at flying Cole all around).
