Do you not remember this video from, say, 2004? Anyway, it's awesome. And really drives home what a badger looks like. And is totally made for toddlers because of bright colors, repetitive lyrics, annoying melody, etc.
So of course Maeve loved the video. But then she developed a game with me:
Maeve: Sing Badger song!
Mommy: Badger badger badger badger badger badger badger badger... (points at Maeve to sing Mushroom! Mushroom!)
She loves to confound my expectations, plus she wants me to say this:
Mommy: AAAAAH! It's not DEETS, it's mushroom mushroom, get it right!!!!!
We play this game over and over.
She also uses DEETS when I ask her a question that she doesn't want to bother thinking about the answer to.
Mommy: ABCDEF... Maeve, what comes next?
Deets is a silly word she came up with a few months ago, and she forgot it until she watched a video of herself saying it, and now it's all the rage. So here's the video of the original deets.
