Children, STL, 230814

When I say my grandson is de-lightful, I mean it!



After this, he started figuring out how to open the front door, and make good his escape...


And here's KTB,singing a very old movie song:



The original, with the horrific images of the man of the house beating up his wife and kid, here:



I've not taught Boodi Ma the 2nd stanza, talking about how the father, after his bout of anger, will call the child..I am deeply disturbed by the culture that this song shows.

The Booda is not yet very verbal, so his singing videos will have to wait...
