Maybe Santa will bring Zoe a guitar that actually plays music (and that is easier for her toddler hands to hold). But for now, she enjoys rocking out with this Guitar Hero controller while we sing, “Play your guitar with Murray! Play your guitar with him!” (Pro Tip: Murray is the Red Wiggle. He plays the guitar. I could go on.)
One of the great things about church, as I’ve said, is that it’s one of the few places people still sing together. That is also one of the great things about raising a child: we get to sing all the time! Zoe has quite a repertoire, from the aforementioned Wiggles to nursery rhymnes to Devo to Moxy Fruvous.
Right now, my favorite Zoe tune is her version of “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands”. It goes like this:
He’s got the whole world in his hands.
He’s got Papa’s toesies in his hands.
He’s got Grandma’s toesies in his hands.
He’s got Zoe’s toesies in his hands.
He’s got the whole world in his hands!
That’s how we are praying for Papa and Grandma (and their toes) these days. It’s music to my ears.
