Today we went to get Abraham booster shots (more about that in a different post) and at the doctor’s office there was a huge aquarium in the waiting room. As soon as Abraham saw it, he ran up to it, started tapping the glass with his finger, singing “Twinkle, twinkle little star…!” in a funny voice (not his usual sweet voice). It cracked us up. Not because it’s particularly funny, but because of why he was doing it.
One of Abraham’s favorite movies is FINDING NEMO. He loves it, and has watched it more times than I can count. If you have seen it, then you’ll remember the aquarium Nemo ends up in at the dentist’s clinic in Sydney. You’ll also recall the string music from Shark playing as the mean child – the dentist’s niece - would come visit, and they would all exclaim “Darla!!” because once Darla “wouldn’t stop shaking the bag.” Perhaps you’ll also remember how she would tap the glass really hard and sing “Twinkle, twinkle little star” with a horrible, squeaky, off-key voice.
That’s what he was doing; making a reference to his favorite movie. So funny.
