Our Favorite Things
Daddy asks the kids before bed one night what their favorite things are. About a week later, Daddy slips an extra verse into their lullaby:
Pink glittered clothing and spiderman britches
Bread baked with Papa and spells cast on witches
“Lay down, two minutes” while our Daddy sings
These are a few of our favorite things.
Okay, Daddy does get shy, happy smiles in response, but even Fisher can spy the stretch for a rhyme: “Daddy, what are britches?”
Satisfied with Daddy’s explanation, they now think “My Favorite Things” has four verses.
