Littleman: "Tomorrow we might go to the studio. We might go to the studio to record!"
Me: "Oh yeah? That's cool. What are you going to record?"
Littleman: "I'll sing you what I'm going to record." (he sings an unidentifiable melody of sorts) "Do you like it?"
Me: "Yes, I think it's a great start!"
Littleman: "Hmm. No, never mind. I'm going to play drums!"
Me: "Well you know, you could play drums and sing, if you want to."
Littleman: "Really?!? How?"
Me: Well, you could either sing and play drums at the same time, or you could play drums first while Daddy records you, and then Daddy will play your drums in your headphones for you while you sing. Daddy can then put it all together so it sounds like you are playing drums and singing at the same time."
Littleman: "Wow! OK. And I want someone to play guitar."
Me: "Maybe Daddy will play guitar for you."
Littleman: "No, I'm going to have a band! A kid band!"
Me: "So it has to be a kid playing guitar?"
Me: "Do you know any kids that play guitar?"
Littleman: "Bella plays guitar!"
Me: (laughing- Bella is Littleman's age) "Bella plays guitar? OK. So you want her to be in your band, then?"
Littleman: "Yeah. I'll have just ONE grown-up in my band."
Me: "Oh, really? Who?"
Littleman: "You, Mommy!"
Me: "Me!?? What will I do in your band?"
Littleman: "You will sing!"
Me: "Oh, well I appreciate your vote of confidence sweetie, but I'm not exactly the world's best singer."
(Note: I'm terrible, actually)
Littleman: "Oh, that's OK- Daddy will fix it for you!"
Me: (laughing) "Oh, I see."
Littleman: "I'll have a kid band, and our band name will be 'Skull Riders'."
Me: "Skull Riders?" (chuckles) "That's a good band name."
Littleman: "Maybe you should write this down for me, Mommy."
Me: "Hmm- now that is an excellent idea."
