Nariah was talking on the speaker phone to grandma and granddad tonight and wanted to play make believe. The topic was about being on a ship and mermaids. I’m putting away her clothes and listening to her and all of a sudden she breaks out into a song about mermaids. My first instinct is “oh cool, a new song!”
Here’s what followed:

Here comes a mermaid… swimming in the sea
here comes a shark… and eats up the mermaid
here comes another mermaid swimming in the sea
here comes the shark again, and eats up the mermaid…

I’m feeling a nervous silence over the phone and think to myself what a violent song this is. So I try to jump in for damage control.
Umm, Nariah, is this a new song you learned?
Its a new song, I’m making it up now…
Oh… Well why are the sharks eating up the mermaids?
Nariah looks at me sideways as if to say, “Helloooooooooooo” and says:
Because that’s what sharks do!

Helloooooooooo, I guess I don’t need to question her anymore.

Its Friday and I get Nariah to daycare just in time for the kids to go outside to the playground. As I put away Nariah’s belongings, one of her classmates come up to me as says “I brought a necklace today, wanna see?”. After replying in the affirmative and watching her run over to the “show and share” basket it hits me.
Oh shoot!
What’s wrong daddy?
Today’s Friday, and we forgot to bring something for show and share. Is the letter of the week ‘N’? Maybe I can catch mommy before she leaves the house and see if she can bring something in on her way to work.
Ok daddy. Ooh, maybe I have something on my shirt that starts with ‘N’?” and she starts to look at her shirt which just has a rainbow on it.
“Hmmm, I don’t think we have anything on that shirt boo
Nariah sighs and then lets out a big gasp. Queue gasp –> “Gasp!
What Nariah?
I know I know!!! I’ve got it daddy! Me!!!” she exclaims with the most gleeful look on her face.
Yeah daddy! Nariah starts with ‘N’! I can show myself for show and share!

Now I’m pretty positive if I had mentioned her, she wouldn’t have liked that idea, but to see her get all excited about using herself and coming up with it herself was priceless.
