We Got Married in a Fever

Good mothers teach their children to sing the song Jesus Loves Me while I apparently teach my two-year-old country music songs about failed marriages. Yes, Cate's favorite song right now is Johnny Cash's Jackson (from Walk the Line):
We got married in a fever/hotter than a pepper sprout/We've been talking about Jackson/Ever since the fire went out/I'm going to Jackson/Look out Jackson town/Going to loosen my coat/Going to Jackson/That's all she wrote. 

And notice that I bribe her with the promise of a treat so she'll sing me the song. Nice work all around.

  1. Cate (and YOU!) definitely have some things to teach Claire. This is awesome…we are still working on “twinkle, twinkle little star…” Also – I LOVE the picture project! Someday (if) I ever get pictures on the wall, please remind me of this. Can’t wait to see them up close!
