We've been learning about the moon, and by "we" I mean the jude because I already knew about the moon. Fancy that.
"Moon, mama! Moon in the sky! I see it!"
"Oh yeah, there it is! I see it too! Cool."
"Me too. That a moon. In the sky. Moon in the sky. Moon!"
"Ooohhh. Kaaaaay dude. Yes. Moon."
"It getting dark."
(Which sounds like an astute observation unless you know that he also says this at 10am and 2pm and 4pm and when it rains and when the sun is shining and at night, which is something at least.
He has a lot of concerns about the approaching darkness, most of which involve repeats of "HURRY" and "VERY DANGEROUS." He doesn't seem concerned about the dark itself just its mysterious arrival. How does it get here? And why are there so many knives?!)
"Sing that twinkle star mom, sing that twinkle star. SING IT."
"Twinkle twinkle little star..."
(Tiny whispering) "Twinkle twink, lil star. How... wonder... up above... world... SKY."
"MORE TWINKLE TWINKLE, MOM. SING THAT."
"Stop. Do that bitsy spider. Do that mom."
"The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout..."
(Repeat ad infinitum)
