my mom has been great about sending me picture updates of my fur baby....
A quick note on how my mom's grandmother name evolved from Mere into Mairzy...
Kelley sings a song with the boys called
"Mares Eat Oats - Mairzy Doats -"
I had heard them sing it together a couple of times
and one day I finally asked,
"Are ya'll singing in Polish?"
(Travis' grandma sometimes sings polish lullabies to the kids)
Trip and Nate busted out laughing with,
"NO, Aunt Fuzzy! It's just how a baby would sing the song".
"Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
If the words sound queer and funny to your ear, a little bit jumbled and jivey
Sing "Mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy"
I'm glad they told me or I would have been
showing off my newly found knowledge of the Polish language.
