Casey has never been much of a performer.  He’s been able to sing the alphabet song for months now.  He loves Twinkle Twinkle and he knows every EVERY verse of The Wheels on the Bus.  But until last night we had no proof that he even knows what a song is.  Every time we get the camera out, Casey loses all interest. 

But last night he was in the mood to perform.  I think it was because Riley was upstairs resting due to a headache.  (Why would a 6 year old suddenly start getting headaches?  If your 6 year old asks you the same thing, I’d recommend NOT mentioning the possibility of a brain tumor.  I learned that lesson last night.  Sinus infection.  That’s what Kim bailed me out with.  Much better answer.)  Without Riley nearby trying to steal the show, we got some great footage of Casey singing. 

Kim especially likes the part where Casey sees an object on the floor and can’t stand to let it stay there.  So right there in the middle of the song he starts obsessively cleaning. I especially like how he is oblivious to the microphone cord being completely knotted, wrapped up in itself and impossible to straighten out.  Casey doesn’t seem to mind or even notice the cord, but the lego on the floor – now that’s a crisis. 

There is also a lesson in this performance footage.  Do not EAT the microphone.

    Isn’t that what Dad always said….it’s either a headache or brain cancer.

    Casey is too cute. Was the microphone actually shocking his tongue? Seems once would have been enough for that.

    this made me cry a little… the last time i saw him he was 8 weeks old… and built like a line backer….

    OMG, quite possibly the cutest thing ever, holy crap! Way to raise an OCD kid who cleans during and AFTER his performance.

    Casey’s adorable!

    Happy Turkey Day!
