Future Rap Star?

So Aidan goes to pre-school on Tuesday and Thursday. And, in the interest of logistics, Erin goes to my mother-in-law’s when Renee goes to work, so it’s just us two men hanging out on Tuesday and Thursday morning.

The oil man came to make a (very expensive) delivery this morning, so our attention was focused on watching that entire process.

When the truck left, I realized we only had a few minutes to get dressed and out of the house at our normal time to keep things on schedule.

That’s when the following occured:

“Come on, bud, we don’t want to be late. Let’s hustle.”

“But, Dad,” he started, “I don’t want to hustle or bustle or muscle or wustle.”

I just cracked up and said, “Well, OK, but let’s hurry up.” And we did.

Oh, and yeah, wustle isn’t really a word. We know this, right? But it was funny to hear him make up another rhyme.

What else? I got nothin’ (except a pile of work to do).

    I like how you said “just us two men”. So cute!

    He’s such a munchkin.

    And I feel him. Today I definitely don’t want to hustle or bustle or muscle or wustle either.

    Aidan’s lyrics kind of remind me of the Superbowl Shuffle, only I bet your son moves better than The Fridge.

    Also, love the family picture! I took 70 photos of my nephew while trying to get our Christmas card picture, so I totally believe it’s the best one of your family in existence. You guys look very happy.

  4. What is it with kids and rhyming?! TB’s 4-year-old nephew got on this rhyming kick and one day he was like “duck rhymes with f-ck, right dad?” Gah. Kids.

    Personally, I’ve always been more partial to the Electric Slide anyway.

    We should try those lyrics out around the office. Let’s not hustle, bustle, muscle or wustle with anything in those piles of work waiting for us…

    Wustle? That’s genius. Seriously, you’ve got a star there. I’ve put that rhyme to some beats and am shopping it to Kanye.

    I don’t have many kids in my life. This is why I need your stories like this.

    I feel like I’ve been wustling all day.

  10. He is so cute – isn’t it funny what comes out of their mouths?
