“Hey, Mom!  Do you want to listen to some cool tunes?” A six-year-old grin pushes its way into the bathroom.

“Not right now, honey.  I need privacy.”

“But listen to this!” He slaps his new fat toothbrush onto the counter and presses a button.  Taio Cruz begins singing his hit song “Dynamite” out of the handle.

                I throw my hands up in the air sometimes,
               Saying AYO! gotta let go!

“Wow!  That’s pretty cool, hon, but . . .”

              I wanna celebrate and live my life,
             Saying AYO! baby, let’s go!

He’s not listening.

            I came to dance, dance, dance, dance

He’s dancing with his eyes closed. The monkey bobs his head from side to side. Then he swings his six-year-old hips back and forth.

           I hit the floor ’cause that’s my plans, plans, plans, plans

He spins and strikes a pose. He’s knocking his knees and crossing his arms like an old Vaudevillian. I nearly fall off the toilet I’m laughing so hard.

          And it goes on and on and on……  Until the singing toothbrush runs out of steam.

“So, did you like my Toothy Tunes?”

“That was pretty awesome.  Um . . . can I have some privacy now?”
