E is for EIEIO

Over the next few weeks, I am blogging through the alphabet. I am enjoying coming up with different topics to share. You can read more AtoZ posts by clicking here.

E is for EIEIO

We sing all the time. IntelliGent loves music and has a large repertoire of songs. Because of this, sometimes songs get mislaid and we stop singing them for a time. This week we discovered a lost song.

How we could lose Old McDonald is beyond me. It is such a classic children's song, but IntelliGent moved on from animal sounds almost a year ago. He's current song list revolves around Sunday school songs.

We learned about the farm earlier this week. As we talked about the different animals, IntelliGent had the joy of reviewing some of those old animal sounds. It has also sparked a new interest in his stuffed animal collection.

There was delight written on IntelliGent's face as I started to sing Old McDonald. He jumped in immediately, requesting that we sing it over and over again.

I would love to take IntelliGent to a petting zoo in the near future. I think he would benefit from seeing the animals in person, instead of just as a picture. He knows about chickens from visiting his grandparents, but I would like to introduce him to goats, sheep, and cows. Of course, there is always the possibility of over stimulation at a petting zoo, but I'm willing to chance it.

Now for your enjoyment. Two verses of Old McDonald sang by my favorite tot.


  1. So cute, the little sound at the end made me laugh. Hope you are having warm spring weather to take some field trips to see the animals.

Thank you! I appreciate hearing what you have to say.
