Everything from encyclopedia's to comic books, we bought it.
I think we ended up, in two separate trips, with something like 40 books and two maps of China for their room.
Our aim is for the boys to retain their ability to speak, read and write in Mandarin and books are certainly a big, big part of that.
Looking back now, I wish we would have bought triple the amount we did.
Anyhoo, we also purchased a children CD of songs.
That CD then became buried underneath a mound of things that I have yet to fully unpack and put away,,,, until today.
After tripping over the pile and stubbing my toe for the umpteenth time I decided to try and tackle a bit of the pile, found the CD and decided to do something novel....like put it where it belongs.
I started to walk downstairs to put it in the car and I began to take what was my first good look at the CD.
And that's when I nearly pee'd my pants laughing.
It should be noted here that I didn't actually pee my pants.....that just would have been another thing I need to clean up and gracious knows I do not need anything more to clean up.
So would you like to take a look at some of the songs we will be bopping around to?
Yeah, I thought you would too.....here's a small sampling of the totally awesome song titles.:
- Little girl who picks mushroom
- Song of the wood that A is virgin
- Girl gathering seafood on the beachtide is ebbing
- Protect teeth
- Clean the song
- Wear the clothes song
- Good father's bad father
- Small Buddhist monk
- Fish's water middle reach
- Toffee haws
- Water should save
- Black cat's police chief
- Careful when using the electrical apparatus.
Pretty catchy dontcha think?
