Fee Fi Fo Samiches, beansnaps and the runny nose
Tonight Q was in a "giant" kick. He kept saying "Fee Fi Fo Samiches " and talking about giants... I laughed and started saying the classic line of "Fee Fi Fo Fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman" in my best gruff giant voice. He laughed and repeated it and did very well. I have no clue where the "samiches" came from, but the other day he started singing "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little French Fry" -- so who knows.
Because he was in a "giant" mood I decided to read him "Jack and the Beanstalk". He was very excited when I told him about it and he kept repeating "Mommy where is Jake and the beansnap? I wanna see Jake and the beansnap". Finally, we made it through about the first 2 pages to where the book starts to talk about the giant's wife. The book that we were reading had a nice big color illustration of the giant's wife. He was very afraid of her and called her "big lady giant". I told him she was a nice giant at which point he leaned in real close to study her picture and he leaned back and said "lady giant has a runny nose".
